The best way to make a statement this season is by experimenting with print and texture. David Jones General Manager Womenswear, David Bush says: “For me, Winter is all about layering. Instead of the bright, explosive colour we see in Summer, bold, graphic patterns and surface interest are a great way to add interest to your look in Winter." See the gallery of images from the Autumn Winter Fashion Launch where different prints, texture and layers were explored for Carl Kapp, Easton Pearson, Akira, Collette Dinnigan and Jac+Jack.
