Media Release

Stockland Wetherill Park has achieved another outstanding retail coup, today hosting the global launch of One Woman.

One Woman is an exciting new concept in women’s fashion, bringing together a specially curated range of the best in brand from the stable of Specialty Fashion Group labels including, Autograph, City Chic, Crossroads, Katies, Millers and Rivers.

One Woman will occupy a 750 square metre store, offering 15 product categories including, dresses, denim, knitwear, coats, shoes, sleepwear and accessories. One Woman’s philosophy is to offer fashion that provides the perfect fit for every customer, rather than forcing customers into an unrealistic and narrow range. One Woman is staffed by specially trained fashion assistants, ready and willing to provide expert advice to help women find the perfect fit and the right outfit to suit their shape.

Stockland Group Executive and CEO Commercial Property, John Schroder, said: “The new One Woman concept store is a fantastic addition to Stockland Wetherill Park, joining a strong stable of over 65 fashion and accessory retailers. We are very proud to be the first to bring this global fashion first to our customers in western Sydney."

“We know that One Woman has ambitious plans to open more stores in Australia and around the world, but it’s a huge sign of confidence in the fashionconsciousness of western Sydney that they’ve chosen Stockland Wetherill Park as the global launch pad.”

Specialty Fashion Group CEO, Gary Perlstein said: “It was our ambition to create a unique shopping experience for customers – one that injects the emotion, passion and excitement of leaving a store knowing they have been transformed. One Woman is for women who value fit and are seeking thoughtful guidance to transform fashion ideas into a style that is theirs. We’ll stock sizes with all different cuts and fits. Our fashion offer will fit the customer – rather than the customer fit the fashion.”

Stockland is putting the finishing touches to its 30-month, $228 million redevelopment and expansion of the centre, last month unveiling a new look, next generation Target. The new Target includes styling experts, an in-store café, click and collect service, a T-shirt printing station, on-site clothing alteration service and a digital photo kiosk.

Next door to Target, the centre also unveiled a new men’s fashion store this week, Johnny Bigg. An extension of the well-known Tarocash brand, Johnny Big’s collection caters for the big or tall man, specialising in suits, shirts, chinos, denim and accessories.

The redevelopment and expansion of Stockland Wetherill Park has seen the centre grow into a major regional shopping centre. The new centre has a Gross Lettable Area (GLA) of 70,000 square metres, offering some of the biggest, best and most unique brands in Australia.

John Schroder, continues: “There is no other mall quite like Stockland Wetherill Park anywhere in Australia. It delivers an unparalleled retail experience, anchored by fresh food and fast casual dining with a modern twist on laneway-style street food vendors, fabulous fashion and entertainment.”
