Gungahlin Collective

Gungahlin is the fasted growing satellite suburb in Canberra, and its shopping centre has undergone significant expansion in the past 12 months, and now … welcomes the innovative Gungahlin Collective which opened its doors on Saturday 2 September.

Gungahlin Collective is the brain-child of Kristy McPhillips of Sash & Belle. Kristy has been designing Sash & Belle handbags, totes, and clutches since 2013, and spotted a gap in Gungahlin for corporate workwear, and fashionable, but not expensive, clothing and accessories.

Gungahlin Collective includes local designers Zilpah Tart—renowned for her Canberra themed collections and a FASHFEST regular, and Sovata—also a FASHFEST designer showcasing clothing and millinery. Betty Basics is based in Sydney and includes trendy women’s clothing that will take you from work to play with a gorgeous range of super comfy, mix-and-match tops, bottoms, and jackets. And, of course, there’s a complete range of Sash & Belle bags!

And the guys are not forgotten either, with ties and accessories from Christian James—one of the few guys who can show you how to tie a Full Windsor.
