Brisbane’s Fav Shopping Destination For International Fashion

Forget Milan, Westfield Chermside is where it’s at

Welcome to Brisbane’s only shopping destination for international fashion, all under one roof. For our November magazine cover, we set our sights on Westfield Chermside and their global, fashion goal-kicking wins.

Undoubtably the go-to space for effortless trans-seasonal fashion and resort style dining, Westfield Chermside is keeping their finger on the pulse when it comes to unique fashion and beautiful surroundings to eat, shop and play. Housing international brands such as Zara, H&M, UNIQLO, JD Sports and Sephora, the centre provides a unique and inspiring way to mix and match across brands.

Westfield Chermside stylist, Leticia Gaskell, says the benefits are endless with all the international retailers together. “It’s taken the complicated out of building your wardrobe. Shopping well within these fast fashion retailers allows you to select pieces that are both trendy yet timeless and will take you from season to season.”

One of the largest international fashion companies in the world, Zara, is across two levels and is home to womens, mens and kids’ wear. Incredible for on-trend items every season, Zara is a mecca for fashion forward looks without breaking the bank. “Zara’s top colour palette for spring is notably cornflower blue, pops of candy pink, sage and yellow, while neutrals and bold brights are still definitely a feature throughout,” says Leticia. Stroll a little further down the mall and you’ll see the abundance of pastels showcased in this season’s H&M collection. “H&M has some of the best longline blazers in a range of great colours. It’s most definitely a go-to retailer for head to toe looks including shoes, accessories, active wear and swim,” says Leticia.

For the best hidden and on-trend denim, nothing compares to UNIQLO. Sitting beautifully bright on level two, it’s home to some of the best quality collections, sustainable fashion and the most affordable linen for both men and women of any age. Leticia explains it’s the perfect store for staples such as basics and denim. “Look no further to find the cuts that are super trendy, especially the high-rise flare,” she says.

Leader in sports fashion and encapsulating the epitome of street style, JD Sports is a vibe. Channelling the most fashionable athleisure and casual wear, they’re known for having street-style exclusives and stylish ranges. Adorn the latest from Adidas, Nike, Puma, Reebok and Lacoste and forget classic black, as khaki and blush are the seasonal tones coming through for sport style this spring.

Completing your look and topping off your shopping experience at Sephora is simply a must-do. “With some of the best brands in the industry such as Fenty Beauty by Rhianna, The Beauty Chef by Carla Oates and Huda Beauty, visiting the glamorous wonderland is an experience within itself,” says Leticia. Its unique and open environment means there are always ever-increasing emerging brands across their broad range of categories from makeup to wellness. It’s this infinite number of products that can pose quite the challenge to resist buying everything that catches the eye. Whether you’re looking for something natural, functional or a look that’s a little bolder, Sephora has your skincare, makeup, hair care, and fragrance bases covered in one trip.
