Breaking news: Zara heads down under

You will have to forgive me for using the words 'down under' in a headline, but I am just so darn excited I can't help it. I just heard the exciting news that the boutique that has long turned European women into doyens of modestly-priced style is coming to Australia.

Next year Zara will be hitting our shores and I am keeping my fingers, toes and knees crossed that a store will hit Perth as part of that first rollout.

In case you've never been lucky enough to head to Europe and experience Zara yourself, it is essentially the shop packed with all the latest on trend fashions and must have staple pieces but much, much cheaper.

The funny thing is I came across this glorious news when reading mainstream media articles about Zara being set to 'murder' Australian fashion. Really? Since when is the chance to buy reasonably priced good quality black pants the death of Aussie business? I can't see it myself, I think a bit of healthy competition and a bit more variety on the shopping front can only be a good thing. Read more about the 'death' of Aussie fashion here.

What do you think? Do you think the opening of Zara is the best news you've heard all year or is it the end of Australian fashion as we know it. Comment away people, don't be shy!
