Fashion Preview @ Canberra Centre

19 September 2014

It’s time to throw off the black of winter and reach for the sherberts, cobalt, acid yellow, white and ubiquitous animal prints of summer.

Well that’s if you want to. But let’s face fashion is an addiction, a necessity and the best feel good fix when you can’t find a thing to wear despite an overflowing wardrobe. The Canberra Centre has zoomed in at the start of the new season with fashion parades, a little Beauty Oasis to provide some pampering and a VIP customer gift bag to say thank you for supporting the industry that is suffering as we increasingly shop online. So they’ve gone for the ‘retail experience’ method with Colleen Cunio bringing her team to town to style, produce and present with local models the best the centre has to offer.

Research for this little story is as easy as schlepping around the shops, perusing the current fashion mags and chatting with the pretty young things to garner opinion on current trends. Would the blue hued ‘Bermuda’ shorts suit with lace-up suede shoes be a starter for the blokes. Maybe said the under twenties but Red Foo has cornered a colourful market with his unique and fashionably fun outfits that take the suit set to another dimension, so we’ll wait and see.

But there’s more opportunity to get your style on track for the warmer weather with the Canberra Centre taking fashion to the flowers at Floriade with the ‘guardians of style’ posing prettily in various locations between 12noon and 2pm on Saturdays in September and October.
