One of Australia’s favorite performers, Jessica Mauboy will be the star attraction at the Target Runway during the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival on Sunday 20 September.

Announced this year as Target’s womenswear ambassador, Jessica will perform live and walk Target’s runway, showcasing the retailer’s new season’s womenswear trends to a 350-strong crowd expected at Fashion Central, Forrest Place.

“Fashion is something that I love, and to be able to combine my two loves of singing and fashion is so much fun,” Jessica said. 

“I am loving the new Target women’s fashion, especially the trans-seasonal khaki pieces and the light fresh whites and chambrays. I am looking forward to showing everyone in Perth the new Spring Summer styles.”

Target Managing Director, Stuart Machin, said Jessica is a wonderful ambassador and will be a great entertainer for the Perth show.

“Jessica is a natural performer, and her innate style and gorgeous personality really makes our Spring Summer women’s range look amazing,” Mr Machin said. 

“We are sure our Perth runway guests will love her performance as well as Target’s latest fashion across womens, mens and kids.”

The 2015 National Graduate Showcase ‘Designers for Target’ designer, Rachael Zheng, will unveil her collection during the Target Runway. The latest Dannii Minogue Petites collection will also feature. 

Celebrity stylist and friend of Target Donny Galella will oversee the runway looks, and Target ambassador Kylie Brown, wife of former AFL player Jonathan, will be sitting front row wearing Target.

This year marks the third anniversary of Target’s involvement in the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival. It will be the second time Jessica walks a fashion runway; her first being for Target in the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival in February this year.

The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Target Runway show starts at 1pm on Sunday 20 September at Fashion Central, Forrest Chase, Perth. This is a free fashion event. All guests will receive a Target goody bag.
