The city’s newest shopping mecca, Emporium Melbourne, has been open for two weeks now but if you haven’t had a chance to check it out here’s our guide for the Melbourne Minute.
Located on Lonsdale Street, Emporium covers 48,000 square metres and is home to over 90 speciality stores across fashion, beauty and lifestyle with many more to open in the coming months.
Japanese fashion label, Uniqlo, has chosen the precinct for its first Australian store, offering funky and affordable clothing for men, women and children. And 30 April marked the day Topshop launched its spring/summer 2014 collection in collaboration with international supermodel Kate Moss.
Shopping can work up a serious hunger and in the food court you’ll be spoilt for choice with the likes of George Calombaris set to open his souvlaki bar, Jimmy Grants, in a matter of weeks.
And if you need a hand with, well, just about anything, there’s a Concierge located on the ground floor who is at your service.
Emporium Melbourne is open from 10am until 7pm from Saturday to Wednesday and until 9pm on Thursday and Friday so be sure to check it out!
