David Jones has celebrated the launch of their Spring Summer 2018 (SS18) season showcasing the very best of Australian designers and leading international brands.

A cast of over 45 renowned runway models was led by an all-star line-up including David Jones Ambassadors Jessica Gomes and Victoria Lee, and international supermodel Karolina Kurkova,international model and celebrity offspring, Anwar Hadid, and Sudanese-born Australian model, Adut Akech.

This season the runway looks were created by celebrated make-up artist, Victoria Baron, SS18 Makeup Director. Victoria has created a unique make-up look for the David Jones runway that reflects the seasonal palette using a range of some of the leading cosmetic brands available at David Jones.

“The beauty look for the SS18 David Jones Collection is inspired by the clashing colours and textures of spring time and the celebration of diversity in beauty’, says Victoria Baron, SS18 Makeup Director.

“Spring is a time of growth and renewal. There’s a huge focus on skin health and preparation for a fresh, hydrated and youthfully luminous complexion. Natural flushes of earthy bronze tones on the cheeks and eyes, brows are free and organically brushed, lashes are defined and lifted.

Partnering again with Aveda for the SS18 show, Creative Director Terri Robertson-Kirkwood will lead the Aveda National Style Team to create the hair looks.

Aveda’s National Style Team led by Creative Director Terri Robertson-Kirkwood created the hair look for the David Jones SS18 Collections Launch. This rejuvenated beauty look takes influence from the first hint of spring, bringing fresh energy, inspiration and the promise of possibility. While simplistic the look has a strong innovative elegance that compliments the vibrant SS18 collections.

“This hair look is all about deep conditioned, beautiful, healthy hair and this is reflected through the lustre and shine that has been created, which is also a current demand we are seeing from consumers”, says Aveda’s Creative Director for David Jones, Terri Robertson-Kirkwood. “We are seeing a trend for hair that is simplistic, as well as a desire for visually healthy and shiny hair. The Aveda styling products used help sustain this health and shine on the runway, regardless of hair type or texture.”
