FASHION: Kookai Runway Show


On Tuesday night I headed along to Luminare in South Melbourne for the Kookai “Hotel Particulier – Somewhere in Paris” Runway Show.

It was a fantastic Melbourne evening and I’m sure I can speak for everyone who attended, that it was very enjoyable night. The venue was amazing; the views incredible; and the fashions were all so wearable and on trend. Guests received Laurent-Perrier champagne on arrival (cheers to Cecylia for toasting a glass with me) and mingled on the rooftop before the show began.

The looks that stormed the runway included statement pieces embellished with lace, leather and faux fur. Bold, seasonal and rich colour including black, teal green, deep purple and rich red were without a doubt the prominent colour ways. Directors of Kookai Australia and New Zealand, Rob Cromb and Danielle Vagner, closed the show to a round of applause.

Some of Melbourne’s most popular celebrities and fashionistas were in attendance including Grant Smilie, Amber Renee, Irish Rivera of StyleZilla and Jess Dempsey of What Would Karl Do. I also had the pleasure of meeting (and sitting front row with) Sam Sidney of Style Paws.

Our very talented photographer Jessie Obialor headed along with me on the night and did her thing with her trusty Canon… Take a browse through some of her gorgeous photos below:















The show was also Live Streamed direct to Facebook – a first time in Australia in hi definition! Very exciting step for the Australian fashion industry!
