In the fashion world, there are several major things that one associates with Nicola Formichetti. Whether it be the stylist behind some of Lady Gaga's most iconic looks, the creative director appointed to revamp the renowned label Mugler in 2011 and, since 2013, revitalising Italian retail brand Diesel's cool-factor. 

Now Formichetti will be headed to Melbourne as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. He'll speak at the festival's Business Seminar and Marketing Breakfast events in March. Formichetti was one of the first to utilise social media (such as Tumblr) as a platform for his work and has broken ground in the way fashion is marketed, distributed and broadcasted. 

Marking it's 20th year, VAMFF is planning to shake things up a bit in 2016 with a soon-to-be-announced lineup of international guests, a diverse program and a new location at the Melbourne Museum Precinct.
