Here’s Where To Shop All Your Fave Aussie Brands In One Place

FASHION FRONTIER 

By Penelope Pelecas | 4th April 2024

It’s no secret Australian fashion is having a moment in the sun… with its understated, laidback sense of ease, and quintessential unpretentious nature, it’s no wonder that our little island nation is making global waves. And if there’s one destination that puts our wonderful Australian designers front and centre, it’s QueensPlaza, Brisbane’s leading destination for luxury retail.

Viktoria & Woods Nepotism Skirt $360, Viktoria & Woods Libretto Cami $320, Viktoria & Woods Hart Merino Cardigan $390, David Jones Jolie & Deen Jodie Necklace $39.95

The shopping mecca located in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD on Queen Street Mall is home to a slew of high-end brands and Queensland’s flagship five-storey David Jones department store (honestly, just riding the escalator and admiring the store is worth the trip alone). On Ground Level, you’ll find a range of international designers like Balenciaga, Fendi, Dior, and Chanel, but head up to Level 1 and you’ll be in Australian fashion design heaven. 

Rebecca Vallance Cedric Blazer $849, Rebecca Vallance Cedric Vest $429, Rebecca Vallance Cedric Pants $499, David Jones NAJO Tigger Necklace $119 (All available at QueensPlaza)

Cruise through a sea of well-loved Aussie brands such as Aje, Viktoria & Woods, Zimmerman, Scanlan Theodore, and newcomer Rebecca Vallance (for all RV enthusiasts, this is the first-ever boutique in Queensland – no more shopping online!). Other favourites include Camilla, Gorman, and Sacha Drake.

Now it wouldn’t be a visit to QueensPlaza without a wander through David Jones. From the beautiful display of cosmetics lining the entrance to the shelves upon shelves of homewares and gifts, the department store never fails to deliver, however, our happy place is on Level 1 where you’ll find the designer womenswear section. While they have favourites like Aje, Zimmermann, Sass & Bide, and Scanlan Theodore, there’s also a variety of other beloved Aussie brands to browse from such as Bianca Spender, Carla Zampatti, Camilla and Marc, Ginger & Smart, Leo Lin, St Agni, Bec & Bridge, Shona Joy, and Alemais, to name a few. Shopping for your significant other? Fellas can expect a wonderful variety of Australian and international brands such as R.M. Williams, Country Road, Ted Baker, Rodd & Gunn, and Polo Ralph Lauren.

Aje Escapist Maxi Dress $695

With the autumn winter season upon us and new arrivals dropping regularly, now is the perfect time to pop in store. In need of a new power suit? The Cedric Blazer, Vest, and Pants by Rebecca Vallance, which is featured on this month’s cover, is a favourite – talk about power dressing!

We already all know a little black dress is a wardrobe staple, but if you’re on the hunt for something a little bit different, the Escapism Dress by Aje (pictured, right) is a fabulous choice (you never know when you’ll be called up to attend a gala last minute, right?). The crepe ruffle detailing and semi-sheer bodice adds an elevated touch to the already-flattering silhouette. Add a trench (we’d recommend perusing Camilla and Marc in David Jones) and you’re covered on all weather fronts.

David Jones Alemais Geanie Sequin Gown $895, David Jones Tony Bianco Hurricane Ankle Boot $149

There are plenty more new season arrivals to discover in store including this gorgeous chocolate set by Viktoria & Woods and the Rosemary Shirt and Manuela Jean by Camilla and Marc (this jean combo screams off-duty cool girl). PS, we also have our eyes on the Geanie Sequin Gown by Alemais – it’s the perfect slip-on style that you can either dress up or down depending on the occasion.

So, the next time you’re out and about in the city or need some retail therapy, pop QueensPlaza at the top of your list – you truly won’t be disappointed.
