Bizarre Bazaar Returns to Sydney’s Sussex Lane

June 29th, 2011

Sydney’s shoppers can once again flock to Sussex Lane for Bizarre Bazaar, the pop-up twilight market on Thursday 30 June.
I spoke to Christopher McLaren, founder of Bizarre Bazaar, “Crowds are anticipated to arrive in masses – all clammering for first pick of a fantastic range of clothing and jewellery. We have DJ Gian Arpino set to provide our guests with some great beats and a fantastic vibe all night. With fantastic shopping and an array of bars and restaurants, guests will be entertained for four hours in the intimate setting of Sussex Lane.”
Bizarre Bazaar is a community project occuring on a monthly basis exploring Sydney’s laneways and public spaces. More information is available online at www.bizarrebazaar.info or follow Bizarre Bazaar on Twitter for regular updates.

It’s a great initiative, a great concept and a great evening out… So get a group together for after work drinks and a shop all in one!

Bizarre Bazaar Brings Sydney’s Sussex Laneway Alive For One Night Only

May 19th, 2011

After interviewing Christopher McLaren on the radio show I do at Bondi 88 FM with Corby-Sue, I fell in love with his idea, his concept and his drive. It’s come to life and it’s now time for you to discover Sydney’s hottest young designers at Bizarre Bazaar, the pop-up twilight market this Thursday (tonight!!) between 5 and 9pm at Sussex Lane, Sydney.

“Bizarre Bazaar is a landmark event in Sydney’s fashion calendar, where the public are invited to experience cutting-edge fashion and explore the zenith of our emerging laneway culture,” said Christopher McLaren, Event Coordinator, A Series Of Fortunate Events.

“Snuggled in between the walls of Sussex Lane, fashion and music will blend to create an intimate shopping experience for all guests.  For four hours only, Bizarre Bazaar gives you the opportunity to purchase collections from 30 local fashion designers – unique, modern, ready-to-wear garments handmade by talented professionals.”

“It’s an opportunity that simply can’t be missed for both designers and Sydney’s fashion-savvy.”

Matt Young of Nine to Five Online spoke about Bizarre Bazaar – “Pop-up markets have really become a staple in the Sydney fashion scene, but it’s so refreshing to see one incorporating all elements of its surrounds; bars, eateries, fashion, shopping, it’s all here.  Bizarre Bazaar has taken the basic elements of a pop-up market and transformed it into a shopper’s paradise.”

Wander between any of the four participating laneway bars, enjoying the fantastic food and beverages designed specially for the event. Soak up the beats of Small Bar’s resident DJ who will be mixing decks for guests high atop the terrace balcony.

A phenomenal opportunity to get up close and personal with Sydney’s most talented young designers.  Show your support by spreading the word – this is a one-off event that can’t be missed!

It’s time a little more Melbourne came to Sydney!
