David Jones Limited (DJS) announced that it has entered into an agreement with young, up and coming Australian designer Christopher Esber pursuant to which David Jones will be the department store exclusive stockiest of the brand in Australia.

Christopher Esber is the 25 year old creative force behind his eponymous brand. Having studied at East Sydney TAFE Fashion Design Studio Christopher was selected to present his graduate collection at Rosemont Australian Fashion Week.

In 2012 Christopher won the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival’s National Design Award and went on to represent Australia at the G’Day USA Trade Mission. He was also amongst the six labels submitted to a British Fashion Council project designed to identify the world’s best emerging designers during London Fashion Week.

Christopher was selected as a finalist for the 2012 Australian Wool Innovation, Woolmark Prize and in 2013 was awarded as the Australian winner Woolmark Prize. As a global finalist of this award he will be presenting his designs in Milan in 2014.

Adding to his recognition in the fashion industry Christopher was awarded the Winner of “Best Up & Coming Australian Designer”, Prix de Marie Claire 2013 and Winner, BT Financial Emerging Fashion Designer Award 2013.

David Jones General Manager Sophie Clark said, “David Jones has a proud tradition of identifying young up and coming Australian design talent and helping to nurture and grow them into established brands that then go on to expand internationally.

"We identified Christopher Esber as a very talented young designer whose creations embody a modernised take on feminine dressing through the use of textiles and cut. We believe his unique creative vision will resonate with customers who have already indicated their love of the brand.”

Christopher Esber said, “I am honoured to have been chosen by David Jones to be part of their Australian designer family and excited to be taking the next step in my career with the support of David Jones. David Jones has a strong track record of helping establish young designers and I look forward to growing my brand and expanding my creative vision with their support.”

Christopher Esber will be available in David Jones’ CBD stores as well as its Chadstone (Vic) and Bondi Junction (NSW) stores from February 2014.
