Miranda tells Brisbane what's hot for summer at David Jones: Sam Aldenton

Brisbane fashionistas flocked to David Jones QueensPlaza yesterday for a workshop of the latest trends with David Jones ambassador Miranda Kerr and author Kathryn Eisman.

A Sass and Bide maxi dress, Zimmermann harem pants and platform heels are summer must-haves, said Kerr.

“My key piece for the season is the maxi dress because you can dress it up or down and it’s comfortable,” she said.

Kerr’s newly golden hair matches the theme for the David Jones Spring/Summer 09 campaign: ‘The Great Southern Summer’, shot in the Australian outback.
“It was wonderful to be shooting in Australia and especially in such remote, beautiful places,” she said.

“I grew up in a town called Gunnedah, so it was really great shooting in South Australia and in Broome.”

Kerr’s brother Matthew said that the family is also glad to have Miranda back in the country.

“I don’t get to see her as much as I’d like, but when I do it’s always good to catch up with her,” he said.

“I’m really proud of her and how much she’s accomplished.”

David Jones is also proud to have Kerr as their ambassador, said young ladies’ fashion manager Sarah Lawrence.

Ms Lawrence said David Jones’ sales have been positive despite a recent Australian Bureau of Statistics report which found that department store sales are down almost 9 per cent.

“Our sales are up from this time last year, and this workshop will boost sales even further for the new season,” she said.
