High End Shopping on Biblioteksgatan

The start of Biblioteksgatan
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is going on in Stockholm right now and Swedish designers are busy showing their Spring & Summer collections for buyers and agents. This Thursday, August 11th, the general public can take part in the fashion extravaganza... during Fashion Night. Stores along Stockholm's premiere shopping street, Biblioteksgatan, will be open late in the evening (11pm) with special offers for customers. There will be a large screen set up in Norrmalmstorg square where you can watch Tiger of Sweden's fashion show plus give-aways, a champagne bar, dj's and more.

Perhaps a few words about Biblioteksgatan are in order? This is a pedestrian street located in the downtown area, starting at the square Norrmalmstorg and running north three blocks to Stureplan. The street and surrounding side streets are filled with high end shops mainly of Swedish origin... Acne, Whyred, Marc O'Polo, Filippa K, WeSC, J. Lindeberg, etc; At the north end of the street you will find the Sturegallerian shopping center for more upscale shopping options and just a block from Norrmalmstorg you will find the luxury department store NK. So, you see, you can spend the whole day in the area shopping for Swedish and international brands! It is easy to get to the area from the Rival Hotel... it's either four subway stops going north on the red line (the stop is Östermalmstorg), 7 minutes by taxi or a 30 minute walk.
Do you only have a short time in Stockholm? Then I would recommend the personal shoppers at Smart City Shopping to help you navigate the stores... otherwise here are some more shopping tips!
