The secrets of New York’s high fashion world are tightly kept (to say the least) but Melbourne fashion designer and retail whiz Claudia has managed to infiltrate the ranks, bringing choice pieces from some of the world’s most elite brands to Moonee Ponds. “I choose things that don’t date,” she says. “Most of these pieces will last forever because the quality is really good. That’s how I like to dress.”
Gleaming beneath a fairy-lit gazebo are on-trend frocks by Gucci, Raoul, Nicole Farhi and more – with prices slashed by the hundred. Yes, you could still be looking at half a grand for the party dress of your dreams, but you’ll never find a better deal this side of Soho. Plus, there’s always lay-by.
