Myer is thrilled to announce that model, influencer, entrepreneur and The Block-winner, Elyse Knowles, and three- time AFL premiership player and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here star, Josh Gibson, are joining the Myer ambassador family, led by The Face of Myer, Jennifer Hawkins.

Jennifer Hawkins, Elyse Knowles, Josh Gibson, Rachael Finch and Kris Smith will, together, launch the Myer Runway Series at Myer Sydney City on Thursday 23 August.

Throughout August and September, the Myer ambassador family will travel to Myer stores around the country presenting the new season collections as part of the Myer Runway Series.

Elyse Knowles says: “I’m going to be in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne as part of the Myer Runway Series. I can’t wait to show the new collections from some of my favourite brands including Acler, sass & bide, We Are Kindred and Elliatt. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone instore!

To be a Myer ambassador is amazing because I’ve been working with Myer since I was 16 years old.

Like most Aussie kids I grew up in Myer stores and it was a huge career milestone when Myer approached me, as a model, for that very first shoot many moons ago! Now, nearly 10 years later, to be an official member of the Myer family is a dream come true, an incredible honour and truly humbling.”

Josh Gibson says: “I’m really excited to have been given the opportunity to become a Myer ambassador and getting to work with such a strong brand and company that has stocked and sold so many brands that I’ve grown to love over the years.

I love how I can walk into a Myer store and stock up on some of my favourite brands for all occasions. Whether it’s an MJ Bale suit for the Spring Carnival, or a new pair of Levi 501’s and a Tommy Hilfiger t shirt and bomber for those lazy Sunday coffee catch ups, Myer has always delivered. I have childhood memories of going to Myer Doncaster with my family and my little brother and I loving the sports section. I guess Myer has always been in my life. So having the opportunity to work with Myer 20 years later is a dream!”

The Myer Runway Series initiative follows the success of the Autumn Winter 2018 customer-led events programme hosted at Myer Melbourne earlier this year. It reflects the development of the concept into a national programme of elevated in-store runway events at flagship stores in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, showcasing the latest spring collections from Myer’s women’s and men’s Australian Designer and contemporary brands.

This extensive national events programme is designed to serve Myer customers; to showcase a greater breadth of brands and trends that will appeal to more Myer shoppers.

Myer’s Spring Summer 2018 collections bring to life the key trends of the season – from dark florals to strong prints and pop of bright colours to the always gorgeous and feminine natural pastel influences. Stunning full length gowns are a highlight and the one shoulder trend again plays a significant part in the spring summer season.
