Designer Clothes.

Does anyone attend the fashion week events that are held and do you shop by designers or at just a particular store. I find I just can't afford in season designer wear but love hunting for last season bargains on line or end of season sales. Designer wear tends to be better quality, cut and fit and it is so nice to have a few pieces in your wardrobe alongside your warehouse trackies.

My designer wear comes from Op Shops including the Red Cross shops which often have brand new clothing from Australia-end of lines. Designer wear is hardly ever in my size but most of all I wear clothing that I'm not worried about getting dirty-I want my kids to be able to hug me even when they havent washed their faces and breakfast is still attached as they certainly are not going to be doing that when they become teenagers. Maybe there is a time and place for designer clothing-before you have clothing and after your kids have left home (daughter likely to borrow it or claim it as hers) and before you become a grandparent!

I would love to attend Fashion week maybe one year here's hoping.
I used to shop designers that was pre kids Versace,Moschino Just to name a few.
These days it's more farmers or even Ezi buy.
But after visiting the states last year and as it was so cheap for brands I have a few more designers hanging around in my wardrobe.
I do love NZ designers people like Trelise Cooper and Karen Walker are my favourite........Maybe one day...Hehe...:-)

Op shops for picking up designer wear at a fraction of the normal price!!! I like to buy classic 'label' pieces for work from op shops or school fairs then update the look with cheap in trend coloured tops form Kmart or similar. My best opshop find to date has been a pair of very stylish Jimmy Choo boots for the grand sum of $5.00. SCORE!!!

Sadly I don't have the income to be a great fan of designer clothing, but should I come across such an item in an Op Shop going for a song, then I am in there in a flash!

Mt daughters pick up the odd designer piece and it takes me back to my 20s when I used to do the same thing. Now it doesn't seem to matter whether clothing comes from the op shops/chain stores-my priorities are different. I would rather spend on my home and garden than my wardrobe.

I often pick up some gorgeous designer labeled clothes at our local op shops and markets. Then I don't feel guilty when I change my wardrobe every season....I didn't pay an arm and a leg for most items!

I'd like to wear something designer. Never owned anything designer before. To afford something like that I'd have to work for many years

No you wouldn't, all you have to do it pop down to the op shop! I've picked up loads of genuine designer threads for under $20 - and not 'designer' like Max, but designer like Trelise, Liz Mitchel, Hailwood etc. Happy hunting :)

If you can't afford to buy it straight from the designer, you could always check out second hand stores or the designer garage sales / end of season sales.
