A household name in the fashion industry, Blonde Venus’ owner Thea Basiliou has been bringing her impeccable style to Brisbane for more than 21 years, stocking the most exciting, avant-garde fashion labels from around the globe. This is the place to check the city’s fashion pulse. Jacquemus (Paris) and Apiece Apart (New York City) are at home on the racks alongside Australian designers P.A.M., Dress Up, Pageant and Verner in the ultra-minimalistic store. The space often hosts pop-up exhibitions and events, so it’s worth stopping by for a window shop – if only to admire the latest art on the walls.
Affectionately known as The Valley, this eclectic neighbourhood has become a vibrant cultural hub, with new cafes, boutiques and cocktail bars opening at a fast pace. James Street shines a spotlight on top Australian fashion, while Brunswick Street is a hub for live music and nightlife.
