Sportsgirl revealed its Summer 2008/09 collection at Central Pier at Melbourne's Docklands recently. Celebrating the launch were many in the fashion, dance and music industries. Jamie Durie’s dance partner from Dancing with the Stars Amanda Garner calved up the catwalk alongside models in a celebration of true fashion, fun.

DJ Grant Smillie spun tracks while models stormed the catwalk with a production that merged different dance genres in true musical theatre style. Fashion met dance as it was paraded down the catwalk in different genres from funk to hip hop and jazz to ballroom.

Rich print designs sat alongside high summer brights of teal, apricot, fuchsia and white with the introduction of the all important black – the colour of the season moving into 2009.

The new Sportsgirl collection makes it clear vintage style lace and chiffon are having their fashion moment in the form of retro inspired romantic pieces. Festival inspired, laid back looks peppered the runway, perfect for high summer and Sportsgirls who just want to have fun!

Here are some pictures from the event.
