From my Wedding Dress to my Christmas pudding tradition

By Yasmin Tadich

Like fate I found my wedding dress through the window of Fialora on the top floor of the Strand Arcade. Made from French Chantilly lace, and it fit just like it was meant to be. I always find myself drawn to the Old World beauty of the Strand Arcade. When I was 18, after completing my HSC, I took myself to Love & Hatred and bought a pair of earrings in celebration - I still wear them 25 years later. Each year at Christmas, my favourite tradition is to come and gather all my ingredients for my family's Christmas pudding. I will always cherish the Strand Arcade.
