Attention BNE fashionistas, beauty fanatics, and foodie lovers: Shop BNE City is back, bigger, and better than ever!

That’s right, folks! This year, the three-day festival will be jampacked full of epic retail offers irresistible to shopaholics, pop-up bars for the thirsty, delectable bites to keep you fuelled, and – the cherry on top – seriously epic prizes to be won.

Kicking off on Friday 24 September, city goers will have access to 70+ exclusive offers from Queen Street Mall’s fave fashion, beauty, dining, leisure, and entertainment brands. Did someone say shopping spree?!

Amid giving your credit cards a workout, there are plenty of ways to quench your thirst between dropping some serious cash. Step into a refreshing oasis at The Chandon Garden, a revitalising pop-up spritz station located outside Zara (convenient) on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September between 10am-9pm, and Sunday 26 September between 10am-5pm. Take a load off, order a cool spritz, and soak up the elegant atmosphere in style.

Just a short stroll from your cocktail stop, you’ll find The Fashion Hub – a beautifully decorated shipping container where free fashion workshops, beauty masterclasses, and panel talks hosted by Queen Street Mall ambassadors Annabel Falco and Tess Alexander will be happening across the three-day event.

And if, like us, shopping is your cardio, you’ll need to refuel along the way. Take your fancy from the BNEat Street pop-up food hub, ideal for hungry shoppers. Here, you’ll find street food from a range of retailers, plus cocktails, and tunes, making it the perfect pitstop.

In addition to all this, those who participate in shopping up a storm will receive a Shop BNE City gift card with purchase, as well as a limited-edition gift bag worth over $100 with goodies from Mecca, Country Road, Lush, Seed, Grown Alchemist, and more, when spending $200 or more in any transaction with participating retailers.

Oh, and just to sweeten the deal even further, our beauty buddies at Grown Alchemist have given Style readers a 20% discount code to use online from now until the end of the weekend: SHOPGA20 (don’t say we don’t do nothin’ for ya!).

It’s a full weekend program packed with great offers, and so much more! All you need to do is check out the full event details here. And, don’t forget to wear your comfiest walking shoes.
