When it comes to fashion the inner city’s Fortitude Valley clips the CBD as the prime destination for the independent, offbeat and designer flagship stores. The latter are concentrated in the leafy modern James St precinct, the Euro style Emporium is home to upmarket boutiques and a clutch of fresh, experimental, on-the-up young designers are scattered throughout Ann, Brunswick and Wickham Streets and surrounding laneways.
Paddington in the city’s west is the other major contender with its string of quirky, designer and one-off boutiques inhabiting character cottages along its spindly ridges. And tucked away in the neighbourhoods of the north, south, east and bay are a growing crop of stand alone boutiques that make a venture afield worthwhile.
