Australia's Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins, will take to the runway in Myer's hot fashion show in Sydney to launch its Spring-Summer 2006 collection.

The launch occurs on Wednesday, August 16, 2006 at the Royal Hall Of Industries, Moore Park at 7.30pm.

103 models and performers will take to the Myer stage to highlight Spring/Summer 06 Myer fashion in one of Australia’s hottest fashion show productions ever staged. Myer continues its commitment to fashion, with all the latest new season Spring/Summer 06 looks from the world's leading international and local designers at the funky and industrial Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park, Sydney.

We want to build on the extraordinary success of last season’s Autumn/Winter show in Melbourne. The Myer Spring/Summer 06 parade will bring our leading stable of designers and some of the nation’s most popular iconic brands together in a night of Retail Theatre.”
