VICTORIA Beckham, McQueen, Acne, Zara and Lanvin are just a some of the labels that will be on sale at the 55th annual Bindaring Clothing Sale for Red Cross next month.

Stylist Juvelle Behrendorff, of Leederville, chose some of her favourite brands to dress regular Bindaring shoppers Melissa Rosich, her mum Sandra Schon and daughters Mila (17) and Lexi (19) Mary, of Cottesloe.

Mrs Behrendorff chose a Lovearn dress for Mila, who is in Year 12 at Presbyterian Ladies’ College and walked the catwalk for Myer at last month’s Melbourne Fashion Festival.

The stylist said the Emporium was her favourite section of the Bindaring sale because of the unique vintage clothing and accessories.

“There’s vintage belts and jewellery that just make my outfit complete or I can use them in photo shoots as well to give them a different edge,” Mrs Behrendorff said.
