Gomes adds glitz to open­ing

Canning Times - - NEWS -

PERTH-RAISED model Jes­sica Gomes will be a star at­trac­tion when shop­pers get their first look at Carousel shop­ping cen­tre’s ex­pan­sion on Thurs­day morn­ing.

About 70 new shops are set to open in the new fash­ion mall, an­chored by a two-storey David Jones depart­ment store.

Gomes, the face of David Jones, will be among those help­ing at a cer­e­mo­nial rib­bon­cut­ting just be­fore 9am.

“I am so ex­cited to be re­turn­ing to my home­town,” she said.

“Grow­ing up in Perth, I al­ways loved the vi­brant colours and re­laxed fash­ion and know lo­cals will love some of my favourite brands that will be avail­able, such as Vik­to­ria & Woods and C&M Camilla and Marc.”

Hav­ing ap­peared for sev­eral years in Amer­i­can pub­li­ca­tion Sports Il­lus­trated, Gomes has re­cently re­leased her own brand of beauty prod­ucts called Equal Beauty and is ex­pected to spend some time on Thurs­day speak­ing about the line.

Carousel’s fash­ion mall will also house WA’s first JD Sports and Vans stores, with G-Star Raw, Mecca, Seed, Sheike and Playt­pus other new ad­di­tions.

David Jones’ top floor also of­fers ac­cess to the cen­tre’s ‘crown jewel’, a rooftop en­ter­tain­ment and din­ing hub that in­cludes Perth’s first TGI Fri­day, Ital­ian chain Criniti’s and an Asian­in­spired laneway.

The precinct con­nects to Hoyts Cin­ema and has an am­phithe­atre and stage.

Jes­sica Gomes will feature at the open­ing of Carousel shop­ping cen­tre’s ex­pan­sion.
