Top Aussie model Alexandra Agoston has made the switch from David Jones to rival department store Myer.

Despite the model's long history with David Jones she will hit the Myer catwalk in Melbourne tonight behind brand ambassadors Jennifer Hawkins and Kris Smith.

Agoston's defection is the latest in an ongoing tit-for-tat between Australia's two largest department stores.

Aussie designer Ellery is currently embroiled in a legal battle with Myer following her switch to David Jones.

The controversy was further inflamed when supermodel Miranda Kerr opened the David Jones Autumn/Winter 2013 show earlier this month in an Ellery dress.

Go behind the scenes at the David Jones A/W 2013 show:

Agoston, 24, took over the deputy spot at Myer when Jess Hart's 2-year contract with the store ended last year and wasn't renewed - much to the surprise of the Aussie fashion world.

Agoston is a catwalk veteran, having debuted Mercedes Australian Fashion Week back in 2004.
