David Jones has unveiled its 2015 Sydney Christmas windows.
For the first time they feature animated illustrations, created by artist James Gulliver-Hancock.
Gulliver-Hancock said the theme was Christmas elves collecting toys from across the world. He was inspired to create fantasy scenes featuring “whacky elves rather than just traditional elves”.
“Where the traditional Christmas elf could go, what extra things he could do, rather than just sleighing through the snow. He could go into space and up different mountains and into different places,” he said.
Opening night included a cocktail party for celebrities and invited guests. —produced by Lisa Solinareos and presented by Lachlan Brunton
