I am super excited to check out this years VAMFF Target Runway show. The best thing about seeing all these outfits on the catwalk is that most of them will be available for purchase pretty much instantly or in the very near future. Unlike other catwalk shows, where you usually have to wait a few months. I know the design teams have been working incredibly hard on the mens, womens and kids fashion and we are in for a real treat. Get set to see all the very latest trends. There will be loads of prints, classic monochrome, cool layering and textures - like lace, leather and knits (after all it is for Autumn and Winter). There will be everything from cool casual day wear to dressy night time looks. Something for all ages, shapes and sizes too! I will be taking you backstage and front row on the day, showing you all my favourite looks.
