In what is fast becoming the Australian shopping destination to visit, Chadstone shopping centre last night welcomed Fendi to their burgeoning list of worldwide boutiques. Nestled amongst the likes of Celine and Loewe among many other fashion-crowd-pleasers, the Italian fashion house's playfully chic designs were quickly snapped up by attendees.
