The Gold Coast’s most fashionable ladies were treated to a luxurious lunch at Pacific Fair yesterday for the launch of the centre’s Autumn/Winter season.
Joining local bloggers and tv and radio personalities was Australia’s PR queen and ex-Celebrity Apprentice star Roxy Jacenko.
As a fashion evangelist, Roxy Jacenko said she was thrilled to be celebrating the new fashion season on the Gold Coast. “I always love coming to the Gold Coast with my family, especially in the colder months because the Gold Coast does winter a little differently and it’s a beautiful time of year to visit,” Ms Jacenko said.
“With Pacific Fair’s enviable selections of luxury boutiques such as Hermes and Louis Vuitton, and your everyday essentials like Zara and H&M, I can do all my shopping in one place and I don’t have to run around Sydney in the freezing cold.”
As for what trends she’ll be coveting this season, Ms Jacenko she will be channelling the 80s. “Gone but not forgotten, this season we’re seeing an 80s resurgence with the best the decade had to offer like shoulder definition, bold hues and some serious attitude. I’m keen to invest in some new pieces like a statement leather jacket or a wide leg pant.”
Pacific Fair’s Marketing Manager, Kate Dixon said Roxy represents what winter fashion at Pacific Fair is all about. “Ms Jacenko is a working mother of two who loves to pair international designer items with affordable Australian icons such as Country Road and Witchery,” Ms Dixon said.
“For Gold Coast locals, the cooler months allow us to play with prints, textures and varying degrees of layers. It’s not always about ‘rugging up’; we have the flexibility of coupling traditional summer pieces with fun winter accessories like scarves and boots.
“This season, we really wanted to show our Gold Coast customers how to style traditional winter pieces like a trench coat or boots for our slightly warmer winter than experienced by our southern counterparts in Sydney and Melbourne. Just because the mercury doesn’t dip as low doesn’t mean we get to miss out on the season’s lust-have pieces,” she said.
Pacific Fair’s Autumn/Winter campaign runs from Thursday 20 April – Wednesday 17 April and celebrates all the luxuries of winter including fashion, food and beauty. As part of their ‘Pacific Weather Patterns’ campaign, Pacific Fair have installed interactive change rooms outside David Jones where locals can try on new season fashion and receive insider beauty secrets curated by some of the country’s top industry experts.
