P *erth *-born designer *Kym Ellery *will debut her latest collection from her prolific label, Ellery, at the David Jones 2013 autumn- winter fashion launch in Sydney tonight after her controversial defection from Myer.

Ahead of her first showing on the DJs catwalk, the Sydney-based fashion queen opened up her life to marie claire magazine, out today, showing how she goes about her busy day-to-day activities and showing off her boyfriend *Luke Stedman *, 36, a former pro-surfer and founder of the surf label Insted We Smile.

Last week, Myer withdrew an application for an injunction preventing Ellery from moving to its retail rival, allowing the fashion star to open DJ's season launch, where Aussie supermodel *Miranda Kerr *will parade her sought-after garments.

Myer claimed the designer breached a supply and exclusivity contract by signing a new deal with David Jones, its main competitor.

According to a writ filed in the Victorian Supreme Court, Myer was informed in December that Ellery's label Ellery Land would not be fulfilling pending orders placed by Myer.

The David Jones autumn-winter launch will be streamed live to the Perth City store for the first time and will feature some of Perth's top models on the catwalk, including *Jessica Gomes *, *Amy Finlayson, * *Caitlin Lomax *and *Rose Smith *.
