David Jones hosted over 250 special guests from the world of business, sport, fashion and media at their exclusive Caulfield Cup marquee on Saturday, October 19.
The marquee played homage to David Jones’ 175th anniversary with a black and white interior inspired by the classic David Jones houndstooth logo. The luxurious monochromatic marquee was furnished with geometric wire seating, black upholstered chairs, mirrored wall hangings and topped with rows of pure white Phalenopsis orchids.
The David Jones family of ambassadors Megan Gale, Jessica Gomes, Emma Freedman, Montana Cox and Jason Dundas attended the marquee together for the first time and alongside special guests Lara Bingle, Ricky Ponting and Erika Heynatz enjoyed a delicious grazing menu designed by renowned chef and Melbourne icon, Adam D’Sylva.
Other VIP guests included Rebecca Judd, Shaun Hampson, Dale Thomas, Nadia Coppolino, Rhys Muldoon, L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Fetsival CEO Graeme Lewsey and designers from the David Jones fashion family Josh Goot, Marc Freeman and Carla Zampatti. The impressive guest list also included Melbourne socialites Camilla Deague, Anthony and Tori Deague and Natasha Oberoi.
As well as the delights of Adam D’Sylva’s menu, guests were spoilt with ice cream treats by Gelato Messina featuring a bespoke David Jones flavour “Ain’t Nothing but a Houndstooth”, signature cocktails, Charles Heidsieck Champagne Rose and Brut Reserve and a beautiful Melbourne spring day.
