Sometimes the location is just as important as the outfit when snapping the perfect ‘gram, and in this case, the motto definitely rings true. Topping the list for places to capture like-inducing Instagram’s is The Old Clare. The hotel has played host to a number of high-profile photoshoots (now including GRAZIA) and was an official hotel partner to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2016.
The venue is a vintage dream, despite major transformation from its original incarnation as a pub and brewery. A luxurious upgrade of gold trimmings, exposed bricks and old timely décor has made it a hotspot for fashion lovers and chic travellers in its new guise. The old-meets-new feel is clearly a hit and also made the perfect backdrop for the Boys Club fashion story shot by Ryan Conduit and creative directed by GRAZIA’s Dane Stojanovic.
The Old Clare’s unique aesthetic and building interior has put it on the map as the spot-to-be for snapping your daily look, especially given Spice Alley is located a skip-and-a-hop away. The near-by Asian cuisine hub is also an Instagram wonderland, with its golden lanterns, traditional-style stores and ceiling of fairy lights making for some magical moments.
Whether you’re looking for a vintage-luxe location or a cultural experience, this holiday (or staycation) hotspot gives you the best of both worlds.
