:: Spotlight :: David Jones Summer 2004 Collections Launch

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Due to commitments in Italy, the “face of David Jones”, Megan Gale, was unable to be the special guest at the launch of the 2004/2005 David Jones Summer collection held on August 19, 2004. It is always a big occasion in Melbourne, and it follows a successful launch in Sydney recently where “stand-in” Linda Evangelista was brought out to Australia to do the runway duties. It proved to be a good scoop for organisers because Linda is recognised as one of the “Supermodel class” from the early 1990s.

It was a lavish launch at the Melbourne David Jones store. With a bigger u-shaped catwalk, it was comfortable for all guests and the event was very well produced. Linda was given a warm welcome back to Melbourne (she previously came for the Australian Designer Collections show a few years ago) and she looked terrific in the clothes she modelled for Jayson Brunsdon, Morrissey, Easton Pearson, Collette Dinnigan, and Willow.

Kit Willow was, in fact, chosen this season to provide the finale of the evening and her Willow label goes from strength to strength. She showed the great strides she has been making and was given great applause at the conclusion.
