Fashion straight off the runway will be hitting a Sydney department store early next year.

The Harrolds luxury department store has always been the place for men to find their favourite designers. But from February 2015, women will also be able to access the world’s most in-demand designers, when Harrolds opens its first store for women.
Set to revolutionise luxury retail in Australia, Sydney’s new purveyors of womenswear will stock the minimalist chic of Saint Laurent Paris, esteemed racks of Balenciaga and Balmain, looks from the eccentrically stunning Alexander McQueen and the always on-point Acne Studios, Lanvin, Kenzo, J.W. Anderson and Thom Browne.
Following in the footsteps of its menswear counterpart, it will also be the only Australian retailer to exclusively stock Tom Ford, due to the store’s special relationship with the internationally renowned brand.
The family-owned business is currently positioned as one of the top 30 innovative menswear retailers in the world and is catering to the demand for luxury fashion and classic craftwork for Australian women.
With the decor of the men’s boutique resembling a French apartment, with dark and brooding timber, Harrolds women’s department store will surely impress when built nearby in Sydney CBD’s Westfield shopping centre. Start saving now; you’ll need it come February.
Harrolds’ women’s departments store will open at Westfield Sydney, on Pitt Street, in February, 2015.
