While the Gold Coast may have the persistent reputation as a big beach town, the local fashion scene is close on the heels of our Southern neighbours. Whether it is the super talented Australian designers they stock, or the enlightened buyers at the helm of these boutiques, these Gold Coast boutiques will have you strutting your stuff with the sartorial big boys.
Here are some of our favourite places for picking up some slick new threads.
Nestled in our favourite fashion hub of James Street, lies Emte, a boutique that will ensure you empty your wallet after just one visit to the change room. Sleek and minimalist, this little gem offers a curated selection of Aussie fashion and accessory labels, like Byron’s F + H Jewellery and Quay Sunglasses as well as dreamy pieces from Finders Keepers, Steele and C/MEO Collective.
Sean Scott Boutique
You’ll feel as cool as Parko carving up waves below the headland as you enter a boutique born of salt and ocean devotion. Local legend and photographer, Sean Scott has created a space decked-out with warm timber fit-outs and quality streetwear. Grab hand-made rattan bags, beautiful linen slips and cotton jumpsuits to elevate your inner beach babe. Even better? It’s conveniently located just a few doors down from Emte, so you can shop up a storm in no time.
About A Girl
Reflecting Nobby’s contemporary-casual persona and brimming with quality, at About A Girl you’ll find beach-street styles like One Teaspoon denim cut offs, All About Eve playsuits, Sol Sana slides and Kivari floaty dresses. The owner remembers your name here and stocks adorable gifts and goodies for that last-minute present on your way to birthday sundowners at Hellenika down the road.
Creative spirits, set your third eye on Palmy’s bohemian bounty. This sweet store is a must-visit for all things festival, weekends away, and wanderlust cravings in general. Think floaty, floral, earthy and vintage. Stocking renowned Byron Bay labels like Arnhem Clothing, Spell Designs, and Amilita, this home-grown store doubles as a leg-up for new local brands and we’re all about that.
