If it is a wedding dress, you are after then call by Mrs Fray a few doors down from Sissa Sorella.
Before heading into the Canberra Centre explore the Anna Thomas store in Lonsdale Street for beautiful workwear. For more casual fashion and homewares call into the Derek Collective which is located in the Ori Building. While you are there check out the simply beautiful Blissiimo store that is a perfumery and so much more. You will know it by the full sized Zebra in the window.
In the Canberra Centre, the new shop to try is not so much a bespoke retailer but it is a welcome new addition. Glasson has come to Canberra. You can find it opposite the entrance to Big W.
