Melbourne Fashion Week Announced Pia Miller as this Year’s Ambassador and Dropped the Full Program
Everyone’s favourite policewoman Pia Miller has been dubbed as this year’s Melbourne Fashion Week Ambassador. However, this is not the first time the Home and Away actress will grace the runways of MFW, she walked in the event’s fashion shows almost a decade ago. She has also dabbled in modelling, shooting for brands GHD and Caltrate vitamins.
Best known for her roles as Constable Katarina Chapman, this is her first major move since she wrapped up filming Home and Away earlier this year. The Aussie beauty announced the news via Instagram, sharing a picture of herself at Melbourne Town Hall with a caption which read, “So excited & honoured to be back in #Melbourne representing @melbfashionweek as its official 2018 Ambassador. Thank you to my amazing team for such a great day.” The 24th annual fashion week kicks off in August 31st and will boast a program of more than 150 events. They also just dropped the full program of events. Some of Australia’s top labels will showcase their newest collections at Melbourne Town Hall, Degraves Underpass, and Union Lane. While streetwear pop-ups, 3D-printing workshops, and even drag shows will continue the fashion invasion across the city.
