David Jones launched its Spring Summer ’13 offering last night to an audience of Australia’s fashion elite — celebrities mingled with designers and editors in the front row, with model-turned-designer Megan Gale joined by Lara Bingle, Collette Dinnigan, Elizabeth Debicki, Alex Perry, Gary Bigeni and Charlotte Dawson.
On the runway, model-of-the-moment Jessica Gomes stepped with ease into Miranda Kerr's shoes, looking chic and confident from start to finish, opening the show in a white strapless Willow bustier number and closing in a tribal Camilla one-piece — which left Gomes looking nothing short of Amazonian — and breathtaking.
Evocative choreography kicked things off, with models stepping out in all-white ensembles by designers such as Scanlan & Theodore, Carla Zampatti, Camilla and Marc, bassike, Zimmermann and Collette Dinnigan. Shortly followed a series of strong black-on-black looks and black and white prints – which set the monochrome tone of the show. Pops of colour punctuated the strong black and white theme, with Ginger & Smart, Camilla and Romance Was Born all bringing the bright.
