Model Jessica Gomes has spoken about how much she loves the clothes and style of people in Melbourne.
The people of Melbourne have been praised for their great style by one of Australia’s most successful models.
Jessica Gomes, who is famous for appearing in the US publication Sports Illustrated and in the Korean version of the programme Dancing with the Stars, explained to the Herald Sun that she loves the fashion in Melbourne.
Speaking during the city’s Fashion Festival, the Perth native explained it is one of her favourite places in the world and she believes its unique feel is down to the huge mix of cultures.
“I think Melbourne people generally have a great style, because it is a very cosmopolitan European city,” Ms Gomes told the newspaper.
Being of mixed Chinese and Portuguese descent, she thinks this has helped her in her career as Australia is now embracing people of different cultures and backgrounds.
She has been taking part in the fashion event herself by taking part in the parade for accessories company Mimco.
