George Street Welcomes Two New Pop-ups

Matt Pearson PhotographyMatt Pearson 320X220 (1)

For more than 15 years Matt Pearson has been pushing the boundaries of fine art photography, creating an extensive catalogue of images of some of the world’s most beautiful land and seascapes, including a growing collection of aerial photography shot from a helicopter.

With an impressive gallery consisting of Australia’s iconic ocean pools, rainforests, and the majestic Uluru, America’s astounding National Parks, the breathtaking architecture of Paris and New York, as well as New Zealand’s towering mountains and fjords, Pearson’s unbridled enthusiasm and appetite for adventure has allowed him to share his love of nature through his camera lens.

Matt Pearson’s new gallery will open at Shop 2, 140 George Street, The Rocks in September. Visit the website for more information.

6 on 77½ George Street
Seven female designers from six Australian labels will showcase their products, providing fashion-forward women the chance to purchase unique pieces from ethical producers at a one-off pop-up this September at 77 ½ George Street, The Rocks.

Showcased brands include Cedar & Onyx, Hills & West, Everyday Cashmere, Boehm Intimates, Extraordinary Ordinary Day and Susan Driver.
Each of these determined female designers are committed to quality and design with passion. Each brand challenges traditional high street fashion, appealing to consumers who value quality and who care about where their purchases are made, the quality of materials used, and the elegance of the product.
Inspired by women with great passion and love, all six businesses are quality focussed on their bespoke offerings of timeless trans-seasonal chic. Every purchase is a choice. Find more information on our website.

Compliance Reminder: Milk and Bread Crates Pick-ups   

Milk 320X220We have recently noticed an increase in milk and bread crates being kept out in the public domain.

Tenants need to be mindful that crates can only be left outside at the close of business or just prior to being picked up.

If your supplier misses a collection then the crates must be relocated to within your premises and not left in the public domain all day.
