This year’s LMFF Cultural Program really proves that fashion isn’t just about runway shows. With a program full of amazing activities from fashion movies at ACMI, to a live fashion chat show hosted by celebrity stylist Philip Boon and top Australian designer Jenny Bannister, there is something to suit everyone’s taste.
Yesterday marked the official launch of 2012’s LMFF Cultural Program.
