By Christie Sutherland | 31st August 2017

This month we are celebrating the best of Brisbane City, highlighting its position as a global city. A sophisticated modern economy, rich cultural diversity, and world-class industry capabilities support Brisbane’s growing reputation as a desirable destination.

For the September issue, Style Magazine embarked on one of its biggest collaborations in the 16 years of publication with three of Brisbane’s most iconic shopping precincts – QueensPlaza, The Myer Centre and Wintergarden.

More than a partnership, The City Edition is a celebration of everything that makes Brisbane the thriving hub it is.

In exclusive interviews with some of Brisbane’s most esteemed influencers, they reveal their trend predictions and exactly how they’ll be revamping their wardrobes for the new season. From industrial elements in Tiffany & Co.’s Hardware collection to Aje’s new-season denim, there’s a lot to fall in love with as the latest designer collections arrive in-store.

A new world city with an enviable sub-tropical climate, lively dining scene, plenty of green spaces, world-class art galleries and premier events, there is more to Brisbane than meets the eye.
