Like Cara Delevingne to Karl Lagerfeld or Kate Moss to John Galliano, plenty of well-known designers have that special someone who inspires their creativity. This year, David Jones did things a little differently for its Spring 2014 fashion launch, asking the stylish suppliers to bring along their muses to the prestigious event.

We weren’t surprised to see Australia’s answer to Cara, Bambi Northwood Blyth, in the mix, along with Nicole Pollard, Rachel Rutt and Ollie Henderson serving as guests to the department store’s top designers. It wasn’t just high-fashion models that seem to spark inspiration for the labels, though, with bloggers, actresses, TV presenters and fashion editors also chosen to walk alongside the designers on the prestigious white carpet.

See our gallery below to see who the country’s best designers like Lover, Alice McCall and Christopher Esber look to for inspiration. Some seem fitting decisions, while others seem a little more strategic. Because why wouldn’t you choose someone with an insane social media following to accompany you to one of Australia’s biggest fashion events?
