Macquarie Centre is pleased to announce leading Australian model and

fashionista Elyse Knowles has become the centre’s first official ambassador

since the fashion destination completed a $440 million redevelopment in

October 2014. As part of her new role, Elyse will play a part in the creative

direction of the Macquarie Centre Spring Summer fashion launch on August

27, having this week been involved in a model casting session to hand-pick

talent who will walk in the spring summer fashion show.

Elyse will be joined by Vogue Australia creative consultants and fashion

bloggers, Tanja G (My Empirical Life) and Talisa Sutton (Badlands), who are

also involved in the planning of the show.

Macquarie Centre are excited to be welcoming the trio of influencers just in

time for spring summer, with Senior Marketing Manager, Emma Giammarco,

stating “At Macquarie Centre we are focused on leading the way in fashion

for the upcoming spring summer season, and working with Elyse is a perfect

expression of this as when it comes to fashion she personifies style and

leadership. It’s also fantastic to have the opportunity to work with Tanja and

Talisa who between them bring so much creativity and style expertise to the


The trio teamed up for the first time this week at the Macquarie Centre model

casting for the centre’s spring summer fashion launch later this month. Elyse

said of the experience, “It was so fun to be involved in the casting, we saw

some gorgeous guys and girls who will inject the show with fun personality

and edge. I am thrilled to be working with Macquarie Centre and can’t wait

to attend the show and see the upcoming collections from amazing retailers

such as Scanlan Theodore, Alice McCall and Willow.”

The fashion show on August 27 will feature the upcoming trends for spring

summer which range from dark florals to optical art, and provide something

for everyone. Also expect to see a return of the 70s with a strong use of

terracotta and mustard tones, vintage-feel suede and leather textures and

bold accessories.

The event will launch Macquarie Centre’s Lead the Way campaign, which

will position the centre as the first place for everything fashion.
