the secret path

Skip this week’s celebrity antics and ‘am I too skinny to strut?’ dilemmas. You’re just interested in praiseworthy fashion, and pieces in your wardrobe that have substance.

Urban Walkabout Tours now take the guess work out of where the vogue-elite go with a masterfully abridged circuit of Paddington’s top fashion and style destinations.

Operator Victoria Moxey or Rebecca Giglia will host you personally during a three-hour Fashion Secrets tour. In your small group (4-12 shoppers) you’ll discover around 30 retailers – designer fashion, concept stores, shoes and bags, jewellers, vintage and recycled, lingerie and more.

You’ll be introduced to some of the industry’s clandestine workings, coveted gossip and hot picks. See the inner workings of an atelier and meet a few established or emerging designers along the way.

We can’t reveal too much more (we can keep secrets…for brief lengths of time) but if you find it easy to get attached to limited edition jewellery from Pablo Fanque, custom-made shoes by the talented Andrew McDonald, or an angelic frock from Rose and Ruby, you’re in for a treat.

Top the tour off with a take home gift bag, the latest series of Urban Walkabout Shopping Guides, VIP (10-20%) discounts for the day and a gourmet lunch (including glass of wine).
