Sydney siders were fortunate to have an international clothing brand opening on their doors before Melbourne for the first time ever back in 2010. If Zara comes to mind, you're on the right track. Whether you were living in Sydney, or visiting Sydney at the time Westfield Sydney opened; an abundance of people flocked to Zara - to only repeat this process at Melbourne's Bourke Street Mall not long thereafter.
Fast forward to 2014, and it was at the end of February that Zara Westfield Sydney temporarily closed its doors to make way for some refurbishments. Today, the 13 March 2014 (as at the time of writing this) Zara Westfield Sydney re-opens it's doors, and many fashion conscious Sydney siders made this fashion retail chain feel right at home.
There appeared to be people who chose to take a day off work and go shopping, while others chewed up their work hours to devour some new stock. Must I say, the new layout is bigger and better than ever - with plenty of mirrors to try some coats and jumpers on, without needing to queue at the fitting rooms. There was an abundance of staff on deck to help out, and after purchasing a black v-neck cashmere jumper at a really great price, my faith in Zara has been restored.
Some cool t-shirt prints are available, as well as quality trench coats, jumpers and scarves to name. Maybe just a friendly reminder of what's to come weather wise here in sensational Sydney, again as at the time of writing this. I did not know that Zara manufacture and sell their own fragrances, but today (again, as at the time of writing this) that is new news to me.
Zara at Westfield Sydney definitely had a re-birth experience, and I also discovered a couple of beautiful, floral dresses that are only retailing for $65 at the moment. Despite the queues at the counter, everyone was served rather quickly.
If the re-birth is set to continue on the back of these recent refurbishments, then Zara at Westfield Sydney is set to be quite popular, giving nearby Topshop and Topman a good run for its money.
Where: Zara, Westfield Sydney - 188 Pitt Street Sydney NSW
Why: Re-opened on the 13 March 2014 after two weeks of renovations.

Even though I enjoyed the article, This is not really my type of fashion. I find the cloths inn these type of stores rather boring in fact; all those browns, blacks & greys, so I won’t ever be shopping here, big fashion name or not.
