David Jones Wellington ‘House of Spring’ Launch

To welcome summer and wave goodbye to winter, David Jones Wellington are celebrating with a customer shopping night – an in-store fashion parade with wine, canapés, live DJ entertainment and special offers across the beauty, womenswear, footwear and accessories departments.

The fashion presentation will be hosted by special guests Kate Sylvester, Liam Bowden of Deadly Ponies and Hannah Laity. The event will run from 5-8pm, (fashion parade commences at 5.30pm) Friday 10th August.

The SS18 campaign titled ‘House of Spring’ takes influence from a flourishing greenhouse, starring David Jones Ambassador Victoria Lee. It captures the essence of a new season awakened, as the first hint of spring rejuvenates its surroundings, bringing fresh energy, inspiration and the promise of possibility. Featuring looks from Kate Sylvester, Aje and Camilla and Marc.
