Sydney street luxe

Sydney-sider Susan, was spotted by The Fashion Vault during the recent World Curry Festival in the CBD.

This vibrant woman draws inspiration for her French heritage and loves a good street luxe look.

Her insider tip on shopping is to hit the markets, specifically the Blue Mountain Glenbook Rotary Markets - her fav!

Staple layers

Local artist Luke Chiswell was stopped by The Fashion Vault girls in Braddon while on his way to meet up with a friend.

This humble artist has recently come back from exhibiting in the big apple. Great to see our local artist having an international reach!

Having grown up on the outskirts of Canberra for some time, Luke’s tip for surviving winter is layers and favouring pieces from his friends label Wil Fry.

Military vibes

The Fashion Vault snapped Shantelle on her way to eat at the iconic Pancake Parlour with her friends.

This contemporary hip-hop dancer chooses to dress for function over fashion. Today she unintentionally channelled a military vibe by wearing her dad's (uber warm) army jacket.

“My favourite store in Canberra would have to be Landspeed Records as I can always find something in there to suit my needs and style," she says.

As our temperatures continue to plummet, The Fashion Vault thinks it’s time for all of us to dig out the big winter coats and scarves!

Red hot on a rainy day

With the weekend's drizzle hitting the Canberra streets it was refreshing to capture a pop of colour.

The Fashion Vault stopped to snap and chat with Tracey, a personal stylist.

Wearing a gorgeous vintage cape she brightened up the dreary streets.

One of her favourite items in her closet is the faux-leather Zara pants she is wearing. As a mother of two daughters, genuine leather pants aren’t a practical budget wardrobe item. These Zara pants were only $50, thus rightly earning a gold status in her wardrobe.

Her favourite store to take her clients shopping is David Jones, as it offers a wealth of labels at all price points under the one roof. Additionally Tracey recommends popping into the Canberra Outlet Centre to be surprised by the affordable fashions available at a steal.

Back to basics

This carpenter loves to head into NewActon to appreciate the modern structures, gardens and good food.

His weekend style is easy going and a combination of wardrobe basics.

“Fashion to me enables my character without strictly defining who I am. You have the opportunity to explore and experiment with styles. When I look good I feel good,” Lee says.

Lee’s favourite piece in his wardrobe is the ‘man-dagan’ that he wears. Purchased from General Pants, it has fast become a wardrobe staple.

The Fashion Vault loves seeing man-dagans and agree that men should invest in at least one!
