International and Australian brands, including UNIQLO, JD Sports, General Pants Co and GLUE Store will be part of Westfield Knox’s newest fashion and lifestyle precinct opening on 23 November.
Australian fashion favourite, Glassons, has also been announced today, with local customers set to shop the latest trends and wardrobe essentials ahead of Christmas.
Westfield Knox centre manager Kristian Nicholls said in just a few short weeks, the Westfield Knox community will have what they’ve been asking us for – a range of Australian and international fashion brands, delivering the next step in our $355 million transformation.
“The new additions to our mix strengthen the destination we’re delivering, showcasing our commitment to bringing relevant and enticing brands to our customers and providing access to what they want locally,” she said.
Property and logistics manager of Glassons Sam Glasson said they know the Knox community will enjoy shopping our range of trending and must-have pieces, wardrobe staples and everything in between, and they are thrilled to be bringing Glassons to the new fashion and lifestyle precinct at Westfield Knox.
Spanning 1,154 square metres, the new UNIQLO Knox store will feature 10 fitting rooms and five self-checkout machines and will showcase the latest 23 Spring/Summer range including the Premium Linen range as well as the wardrobe essentials that customers love both globally and locally.
CEO UNIQLO Australia Fuminori Adachi said they are very excited to be part of Westfield Knox’s significant investment into the area, and to bring Tokyo to local customers with their LifeWear range – simple, high-quality clothing at a great price point, and made for the whole family.
“We are also very excited to introduce the UNIQLO Knox team to locals, and we’re welcoming 57 new team members, along with five existing team members who are transferring over.
“They have done such a great job getting the store ready, and they are looking forward to helping Westfield Knox customers and providing everyone a great experience,” he said.
Ms Nicholls said the launch of the new precinct coincides with the annual Westfield Week of Offers sales event, incorporating Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
“Christmas is just around the corner, and what better time to kickstart Christmas shopping with our business partners pulling out all the stops with exclusive Black Friday offers and experiences across Westfield Knox,” she said.
New design elements will also be unveiled, with a grand vaulted ceiling and centralised skylight taking inspiration from nature to create a sympathetic installation that breathes life and light into the precinct, connecting it with the lower level.
A dynamic lighting installation will transform the skylight throughout the day, replicating the colours of the sky from morning sunrise to midday sun, right through to sunset and dusk.
The announcement of the new precinct follows the recent launch of a reimagined food court in October, and complements community-led initiatives including a full-sized basketball court, a nature-inspired outdoor kids play space, inclusive amenities and a calm room.
To celebrate the launch on 23 November, customers can enjoy exclusive giveaways, live music, roaming entertainment, and children’s entertainment.
