:: Spotlight :: David Jones Summer 2008 Collections Launch - Sydney

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

A large guest list and media assembled for the David Jones Summer 2008 Collections Launch at Sydney‘s Royal Hall of Industries. There was extra attention this time as Miranda Kerr made her runway debut for David Jones, as its new 'Ambassador’.

The venue was transformed into a setting reflecting a hot summer in the city, with bold and beautiful colour emulating the shores of Rio, and the ‘Girl From Ipanema’ theme. More than 250 outfits and 44 models were on show - a visually intoxicating feast.

Australia's leading designers and exclusive members of the David Jones Fashion Family were part of the event, unveiling of their Summer 2008 collections:
Akira, Alex Perry, Alice McCall, Alannah Hill, Anna Thomas, Arthur Galan, Calibre, Collette Dinnigan, Easton Pearson, Fleur Wood, Frisoni Finetti, George Gross, Ginger&Smart, Gorman, Harry Who, Jets, Kirrily Johnston, Lisa Ho, Morrissey, Sabatini, sass&bide, Scanlan and Theodore, Simona, Thurley, Tigerlily, Trelise Cooper, Willow and Zimmermann.
