OK, I understand
Melbourne fashion lovers will almost certainly know Alice Euphemia. ‘Alice’ is one of our most popular indie fashion boutiques, with a particular penchant for Australian and NZ fashion, and emerging local designers. Alice Euphemia is run by Karen Rieschieck, who opened the store way back in 1997. Alice is still going strong today, in the same location in Cathedral Arcade, on the ground floor of Melbourne’s much-loved Nicholas Building. Karen is passionate about supporting and promoting local design – she has mentored many fashion design students through RMIT, and has sat on various judging panels for local design awards. This week Alice Euphemia is also involved in a Boutique runway parade for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, taking place this Wednesday September 7th at Melbourne Town Hall (tickets and info here).
In a little nod to MSFW, we are very lucky to have Karen from Alice Euphemia joining us all this week on the Guest Blog! Karen has seized the opportunity to introduce us to a few emerging Australian labels that she has her eye on – including Emma Mulholland, Kahlo, The Eleventh Hour and Bianca Batson. Karen is convinced these clever young designers are ones to watch – you heard it here first!
Karen has also kindly offered TDF readers an online discount AND the opportunity to win a $500 Alice Euphemia gift voucher, to kick-start your summer wardrobe!
To be in the running to win a $500 Alice Euphemia gift voucher, simply visit the Guest Blog this week and leave a comment on any of Karen’s guest posts, between now and 10.00pm on Thursday. One lucky winner will be drawn at random and announced on Friday!
In addition to the fab giveaway mentioned above, Karen would love to offer TDF readers a special discount for the Alice Euphemia online store this week only! The discount applies to all full priced stock in the online store only (including new season clothing, bags and jewellery). The discount can be obtained by using the code ‘thedesignfiles’ at checkout. This offer runs for this week only – it ends this Sunday September 11th.
