All eyes were on Melbourne as the stunningly beautiful Miranda Kerr hotted up the catwalk as part of the David Jones Summer 2008 collections launch. Miranda is one of the only Australian models to date that has become a Victoria Secret model and now takes credit in becoming the new face of David Jones which was previously held by Megan Gale.
Designers such as Zimmermann, Calibre, Fluer Wood, Allanah Hill, Lisa Ho, Alex Perry and Collette Dinnigan were just some of the lines that were released on the catwalk, only weeks away from Melbourne fashion week. Further images can be viewed in our gallery.
Celebrities from all different areas of the film, fashion and tv industry were in attendence, such as Megan Gale, Kimberly Davies, Gai and Kate Waterhouse, just to name a few.
It was an interesting night to say the least, and also the first step in bringing to life a new company “Global Photographics” of which will be used when attending to Media events from here on in with the inclusion of Peter Downing who is now working along side me. Our business will onsell photos to all media being printed and or online websites at competative rates.
I also wanted to mention a quote from Miranda Kerr that was televised on Channel 10’s report of the event. “Don’t compare yourself to anyone else, but just believe in yourself and focus on your positives not on your negatives” ..definitly words to live by coming from a girl who came from a country town of Gunnedah in New South Wales and has since taken the fashion/modeling industry by storm.
To wrap up as a photographer it was incredible to be given the chance to photograph a “Supermodel” such as Miranda Kerr, if you think this is our of your reach its not, I have simply gotten out there and attended events, networked with various persons and over a period of time learnt the methods to obtain media accreditation and who to supply images with. It wont happen over night as they say in some TV commercials however if your in it for the long haul it will happen for you.
Further more it seems that in my attendence at the launch I was filmed by Megan Castran so I will let you know when the video is online, I look forward in seeing the footage.
Until my next photographic adventure thats all for now.
