I’m not usually one that likes to go to big shopping malls. I generally prefer to shop “on the High Street” as they say. BUT Claremont Quarter is definitely my exception to this. It’s not a big mall. I call it a boutique, up-market mall.
I feel so at home and so happy every time I go to Claremont Quarter. It’s my local, it’s where I go when I need summer outfits to go with my new sandal designs www.ankalia.com and it’s also where I love to catch up with girlfriends for coffee.
What makes Claremont Quarter so unique is that it doesn’t house any of the big budget chain stores, it mostly has Australian designer labels and some of our iconic casual Australian labels.
So, if you want to see the biggest selection of Australian designer labels all under one roof in Perth, then go to CQ. It’s the perfect place to find the right outfit to match with my Ankalia sandals. All under one roof and only on two levels you’ll find – Zimmerman, Manning Cartel, Aje, Camilla, Alice McCall, Camilla and Marc, Scanlan and Theodore and Sass and Bide. Plus, there’s also a beautiful small David Jones department store as well.
For more casual high street outfits, CQ also has Country Road, Seed Heritage, Tigerlily, Witchery, Seafolly, Portmans and French Connection.
There’s also usually some sort of “activation,” art exhibition or a special event on as well, so follow CQ on Instagram or sign up for their newsletter to keep up-to-date with what’s happening.
My favourite café at CQ is Academy and for a chocolate fix go to Koko Black.
I hang out at Claremont Quarter a lot, so I hope to see you there. I’ll be the one always dressed in my sparkly Ankalia Sandals www.ankalia.com
