Fashion down under
Last updated: June 10th, 2013 by admin
Australian fashion-lovers have two new reasons to celebrate. Firstly celebrated fashion label Saint-Laurent will open its online store to Australian shoppers and secondly Sarah Jessica Parker has announced that she will be opening her own fashion line, focusing, naturally on shoes. While other celebrities have had questionable reactions with their forays into fashion and beauty, Sarah Jessica Parker has impeccable credentials. Having spent so many years playing a character who was obsessed with shoes, SJP has not only learned a thing or two about footwear, but has also developed outstanding connections with the industry, no less a person than Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus will be her business partner.
Of course, while Australian fashionistas are happy to buy items from the top international designers, there’s plenty of fashion talent in Australia too. Vogue Australia regularly features work by top names such as Akira Isogawa, Alannah Hill and Alex Perry to name but a few. Australia now hosts its own fashion week, attracting international visitors from around the world. While surf wear and bikinis may still be strongly linked with Australia, there’s plenty more on offer to those who love to dress their best. Those who wish to have their best chance of a successful trip to Australia, will be best to enlist the help of a qualified NAATI translator.
