Miranda Kerr was in her native Australia yesterday. The David Jones ambassador was in the department store to celebrate the launch of 60 new brands joining the stores rooster and choose this sheer lace dress teamed with Christian Louboutin heels for the occasion.
Whilst many brands are closing their stand alone stores and are quickly losing their retail space in key department stores Giambattista Valli is growing from strength to strength.
Fashionsta reports that the brand experienced a 30% increase in sales for their Fall 2010 collection compared to the same collection the previous year. Above that the designer has secured the brand's position in 220 stores in 40 countries across the world. With all that in mind, it's hardly a surprise that the designer is set to expand the brand by opening it's first stand alone store later this autumn. Luckily for Parisians, the store is set to boast both accessories and ready to wear and will be set on rue Boissy d'Anglas.
