:: Spotlight :: David Jones Winter Collection launch 2005

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Featuring real Australian fashion for a real Australian audience, the David Jones Winter 2005 Collection Launch is set to be shown throughout Australia until March 19.

The Sydney and Brisbane events have occurred, and now the show moves on to Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth over the next three weeks.

David Jones Ambassador, Megan Gale (pictured) has already opened the Sydney Launch, and she will venture to Melbourne to partake in proceedings on March 10 at an exclusive VIP Launch.

David Jones Youth Ambassador, Ilona Novacek is scheduled to appear at all national VIP Collections Launches.

What to Expect:

Designers will swap brash sexiness for more ladylike luxury at the David Jones Winter 2005 Collections Launch. Key silhouettes include tailored, wide-leg pants, skirts - both flowing and pencil, and the new shrunken jacket.

“Rich colours, textures and embellishment are all key for winter and this opulence is perfectly captured in our gorgeous Winter catalogue, shot with Megan Gale on location in Spain,” says Colette Garnsey, David Jones, Group General Manager for Apparel, Footwear & Accessories.

She emphasised, “In terms of fabric, we are seeing a lot of velvet, chunky wool and lightweight herringbone and tweed. A must-have this season, the shrunken jacket appears across the board in narrow corduroy or canvas, tweed for the weekend and fabulous, three-quarter sleeved velvet for after dark.”

For Winter 2005 the David Jones designer stable is the only one that counts. Their family has expanded and the leading designers are all present, including Akira, Collette Dinnigan, Easton Pearson, George Gross, Harry Who, Jayson Brunsdon, Lisa Ho, Marcs, Mimco, Morrissey, Rebecca Davies, Sally Smith, sass & bide, Trelise Cooper and Zimmermann.

We look forward to a gorgeous collection and we will bring you the highlights.
