SYDNEY: (AAP) A leading fashion designer abandoned the catwalk and traded models for dancers to set the style for the first day of the Australian fashion extravaganza in Sydney yesterday.

More than 100 designers will parade their creations during the busy five-day schedule of the 10th annual Mercedes Australian Fashion Week.

One of the first on show, Japanese-born Sydneysider Akira Isogawa, joined forces with the Syd- ney Dance Company for a collaboration featuring 18 dancers.

About 300 fashionistas crammed into dance studios at Darling Harbour to see the showcase, which featured both Isogawa's spring summer 2006 collec- tion and the costumes he designed for the dance company's upcoming ballet, Grand.

The dancers strutted majestically in Isogawa's loose designs in a series of choreographed pieces in- spired by the piano.
