Kookai always throws a good party, and so when founders Rob Crumb and Danielle Vagner send a "Save the Date" for their winter collection viewing, you clear your schedule. Especially when model Nicole Trunfio is sashaying down the runway. (After all, she's shot with renown photographers including Richard Avedon, Steven Klein and Patrick Demarchelier.)
Held at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Southbank, the crowd was peppered with well-known folk such as Lara Bingle and actress Melanie Vallejo. Even so, it was hard not to keep one's eyes off the very leggy, tousle-haired female crowd, many of whom work in the Kookai stores. What do they do, comb Chadwick's for salesgirls?
Thanks, Kookai, for the front row seats and covetable goodie bag, which contained a few beauty must-haves and a lovely red Kookai shawl.
