Our Story

Sydney Street - It's In Our Genes!   

After 30 successful years of trading within Burnside Village, Sydney Street is still operating loud and proud. There have been three generations of the Partington family in the fashion industry, commencing in wholesale until Jan and her late husband Robert took the leap into retail by establishing Sydney Street Boutique as one of the first stores at Burnside Village.

Sydney Street carved a reputation as a fashion destination and a second store Sydney Street Casual was opened  which showcased more than 50 of the best casual wear labels in Australia. Jan and Robert’s children, Brett and Jane, have been heavily involved with the business over the past 20 years during which time Sydney Street’s reputation continued to grow with recognition from many awards.

Sydney Street closed the Burnside Village store following Jan’s retirement and under the ownership of Jane, now trades from their converted warehouse in Kent Town while also growing a strong, national online presence. In addition to having a strong online presence, Sydney Street’s new location at Kent Town is only a 10-minute walk from Adelaide’s East End. Ideally situated opposite the East Adelaide Parklands, Kent Town is only a short stroll from premier dining and shopping precincts — Rundle Street, Norwood Parade, Magill and Payneham Roads.

Sydney Street is a trusted and respected name in the Australian fashion industry, that has stood the test of time and continues to evolve with the fashion trends while providing personalised service and advice. The store is located at 22 King William St, Kent Town and is open Monday to Saturday 9am — 3pm. Car parking is available on the premises.
