I liked the gucci store in NYC. At least they let you in even if you're not going to buy anything. I remember going to London with my school and we couldn't get into Harrods.

They didn't let you in, because you were probably not properly dressed, not because you don't want to buy anything. That's an old Harrods house rule.
They even kicked out a football team, recently, because they all wore training suites.(i'm talking about Shakhtar Donetsk, current Europa League Cup holders, and i think that they would have even bought some stuff, every one of them earns a couple of millions/year)

Okay if you want a comparison of what both cities have now, here it is...

32 of Australia's top designer brands

= Sydney has more
= Melbourne has more

Akira - Melb 1, Syd 2
Alannah Hill - Melb 5, Syd 4
Alex Perry - Melb 0, Syd 1
Anthea Crawford - Melb 2, Syd 2
Anthony Squires - Melb 1, Syd 1
Arthur Galan - Melb 9, Syd 4
Bettina Liano - Melb 4, Syd 3
Bianca Spender - Melb 0, Syd 1
Calibre - Melb 5, Syd 5
Carla Zampatti - Melb 3, Syd 5
Collette Dinnigan - Melb 1, Syd 1
Fleur Wood - Melb 1, Syd 3
George Gross and Harry Whp - Melb 1, Syd 1
Gorman - Melb 7, Syd 3
Herringbone - Melb 2, Syd 7
Jayson Brundson - Melb 1, Syd 2
Leona Edmiston - Melb 4, Syd 6
Lisa Ho - Melb 3, Syd 4

Little Joe by Gail Elliott - Melb 3, Syd 2
Marcs - Melb 7, Syd 12
Metalicus - Melb 6, Syd 4
Nicola Finetti - Melb 0, Syd 1
Oxford - Melb 11, Syd 18
Pierucci - Melb 2, Syd 2
Rhodes and Beckett - Melb 5, Syd 3
Saba - Melb 8, Syd 10
Sass and Bide - Melb 5, Syd 3
Satch - Melb 10, Syd 3
Scanlan and Theodore - Melb 3, Syd 2
Wayne Cooper - Melb 3, Syd 2
Willow - Melb 2, Syd 1

Zimmermann - Melb 5, Syd 5

Sydney leads that count 13-12
Sydney also has more stores for the 32 brands mentioned above (123 - 120)

And if you want to factor in higher end chain stores I'm confident Sydney has more of them too...

International Designer Brands

= Sydney has more
= Melbourne has more

Bally - Melb 2, Syd 5
Boss - Melb 5, Syd 5
Bulgari - Melb 1, Syd 1
Burberry - Melb 3, Syd 5
Canali - Melb 1, Syd 2
Cartier - Melb 1, Syd 1
Chanel - Melb 2, Syd 2
Chloe - Melb 1, Syd 0
Coach - Melb 2, Syd 1
Dior - Melb 1, Syd 2
Emporio Armani - Melb 1, Syd 2
Ermenegildo Zegna - Melb 1, Syd 1
Escada - Melb 1, Syd 1
Fendi - Melb 1, Syd 2
Georg Jensen - Melb 3, Syd 4
Giorgio Armani - Melb 1, Syd 1
Gucci - Melb 2, Syd 2
Hermes - Melb 1, Syd 1
Hugo Boss - Melb 1, Syd 2
Jimmy Choo - Melb 1, Syd 1
Louis Vuitton - Melb 3, Syd 3
Marc Jacobs - Melb 1, Syd 0
Max and Co - Melb 2, Syd 4
MaxMara - Melb 3, Syd 2
Miu Miu - Melb 2, Syd 0

Montblanc - Melb 2, Syd 2
Omega - Melb 1, Syd 2
Polo Ralph Lauren - Melb 3, Syd 5

Prada - Melb 3, Syd 2
Salvatore Ferragamo - Melb 2, Syd 5
Tiffany and Co - Melb 2, Syd 1
Tod's - Melb 1, Syd 0
Versace - Melb 1, Syd 0


Sydney leads that count 12-9
Sydney also has more stores for the 33 brands mentioned above (67 - 58)

And this tally of international brands includes the as yet unopened stores by Versace (Crown Casino), Prada (Chadstone) and Miu Miu (Chadstone) as well as department store boutiques in both cities.

For this, I would say that Sydney has better high end shopping. The facts presented above clearly reflect this.

Melbourne excels in one off boutiques, multi label boutiques and discount outlets (ie. Bridge Road, Waterfront City, DFOs etc). Like I said, Melbourne also has done a better job at marketing itself as the better shopping city. Sydney has the better high end stores, more chain stores and more department stores. That, to me, makes the ultimate decision on which city is better for shopping too hard to call.

And to answer your questions, yes I have been to Melbourne (twice). No, I do not own any of the above mentioned labels but what does that prove?
You seem to have forgotten Alex Perry Chadstone and Doncaster?

As well as that yes Sydney does have more high end but it wasn't what was being debated. What was being debated was whether Syd or Melb offers better shopping. And in that case Melbourne does.

I just checked the Alex Perry, Chadstone and Westfield Doncaster websites and none of them list Chadstone or Doncaster as having Alex Perry stores.

I think that the debate was two front. Dimethyl...said that Melbourne has better high end stores and better shopping overall. I just showed that Sydney has higher end shopping and that, combined with other factors, to me makes it too difficult to say which is better for shopping at this time

uh, the point I was trying to make that in a city which isn't known for its style, and where the people aren't "stylish" the fashion houses are crap. The Gold Coast has a lot (for its size at least) but the people aren't very "stylish/trendy", so they don't stock the latest and greatest clothes. Melbourne on the other hand, I found that they stock much trendier clothing. Just my opinion. :/

She? I thought Di was a he?

For sure Melbourne people are known for their better style and sophistication, but we all know that that was not the original argument. The original argument (put forward by Di) was that high end shopping and shopping overall is better in Melbourne than in Sydney, and I think I disproved that theory.

Not until the last few posts was this thread about who dressed better...that just defies the original argument entirely

Above all, Melbourne is known for its sophisticated style, and all round trendiness, Sydney is not. Go make a thread about this in the OzScrapers section with a poll, I think you might be surprised.

Fashion capitals aren't fashion capitals necessarily judged upon how many high-end boutiques they have, but by what the people wear, their style, and numerous other things. Lately though, Melbourne has sunk in the rankings of Fashion Capital, but when celebrities come here, they tend to shop in Melbourne. See: Lady Gaga, Paris Hilton, Taylor Swift, Kylie Minogue, Zara Phillips etc.

Sydney still can't compete with Melbourne when it comes to shopping.

The southern city has smashed Sydney in a national survey to be crowned the premier shopping destination in the country for the second year running.

The annual Shop Til You Drop magazine survey of 3,000 shopping enthusiasts found that 73 per cent viewed Melbourne as the best shopping area in Australia, compared with 23 per cent who thought Sydney was better.

Brisbane was third, followed by Perth, the Gold Coast and Adelaide.

"Melbourne is still seen as the fashion capital because there's so many boutiques there and lots of different areas," Ms DeGail said.

"It has really got a bit of an international feel, in the little lanes you could almost be in Rome, but you're in Melbourne."

Well, we've dragged this so far off topic it isn't funny

You said Sydney has more international boutiques.

That's all.

Oceania's largest Gucci store has opened (albeit a temporary store) at Westfield Sydney. Apparently, a new flagship store will open in the future also at Westfield Sydney but facing Castlereagh Street.
