We’re not the first to say Canberra doesn’t always have the best fashion brands available, and while online shopping is as big as ever, nothing beats an in-store shopping day, where shipping prices and frustrating returns aren’t necessary.

With the intention to bridge the gap between premium national and international brands with fashion-loving Canberra women, Hunter & Siren will be elevating your style, stocking Acler, By Johnny, Alias Mae, Blanca, Anna Quan, Gucci & Saint Lauren Eyewear and more.

“Having moved to Canberra from Sydney four years ago, I experienced first-hand the frustration of limited shopping choices in the area. Buying online often meant the inconvenience of returns, especially when preparing for specific events. I’m passionate about offering Canberrans the chance to explore and try high-end brands that were previously out of reach,” says Owner, Hannah Mitchell.

Opening on Thursday 23 November in Garema Place, Hannah has thoughtfully curated each collection to showcase the diverse talent of Australia’s most revered designers, promising knowledgeable customer service, fashion-forward styling advice, and weekly late-night shopping events.

“You can expect to see a lot of event wear in terms of dresses, shoes, handbags and jewellery but also some more casual day wear pieces as well. Hunter & Siren will be the place to go if you need an outfit for any occasion,” she says.

“We will also be keeping an event diary in store to ensure that no two women are wearing the same piece to a particular event in Canberra.”

Where premium brands meet a premium experience, inspired by the enchanting aesthetics of the Mediterranean, the Hunter & Siren boutique will boat exquisite Venetian plaster and graceful arches. And, to top it all off, it will feature furniture from renowned Australian designer Sarah Ellison to add the perfect luxurious touch, to ensure you feel like a VIP.
