Our August Cover Shoot: Brisbane Arcade’s Jewel In The Crown

Our August Cover Shoot: Brisbane Arcade’s Jewel In The Crown

Are you a flower child?

By Georgie Murray | 1st August 2019

If you’re yet to pick up our August Spring print issue throughout Brisbane, have a little peek below. We had the opportunity to create a stunning cover with Brisbane Arcade and uncover what’s to come for their annual Spring Flower Show.

Brisbane Arcade’s annual Spring Flower Show has flourished to become a notable city must-see, from its beginnings back in 2013. Now, Brisbane Arcade’s week-long transformation to a floral wonderland is a welcomed sight to both locals and visitors alike, and signifies not just a new season, but a refreshing sensory reminder of our city’s oldest and grandest shopping arcade.

This year marks the sixth Spring Flower Show and has a signature seed to history, as Brisbane Arcade celebrates their 95th anniversary. With that, we’d like to introduce ‘Jewel in the Crown’, a tribute to the iconic heritage arcade.

On Saturday, 31st August, the Spring Flower Show officially launches with one of Brisbane’s most exclusive and memorable fashion events - a ticketed runway show under the stars in the Queen Street Mall followed by a cocktail party. Guests will step into an enchanted world of fashion, glamour and of course flowers with the Arcade’s fashion retailers showcasing their spring collections including Brisbane Hatters, Darb Couture, Irma J Smith House of Fashion, Keri Craig Emporium, Maiocchi, Pia du Pradal, Stephen Dibb Jewellery and Tengdahl Australia. 20/20 Optical will also be providing an invigorating look into eyewear design.

After the runway, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail soirée and mingle with designers and the fashion famed of Queensland. This is where Robert White Jewellers will have the opportunity to dazzle their distinguished jewels, all the while guests are treated to an exclusive viewing of floral royalty: Jewel in the Crown.

If you’ve picked up our August issue, you’ll see our cover says it all with the picture of pure spring inspiration, luxe details and floral beauty, exuding the true quality of Brisbane Arcade’s offerings – just a taste of what you’ll find during Jewel in the Crown runway show. With a colour palette ready to pull the city out of the winter hues, the kilograms of floral finesse has been in the works for months prior. Brisbane Arcade’s Spring Flower Show truly is one of the most gorgeous ways to ring in spring. Will we see you there?
