Backstage with Samantha Harris
Kookai launched its AW14 collection in empire-style at the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne. Inspired by the cool confidence of New York, the collection features relaxed fits, intricate architectural-inspired patterns and a more muted palette than we’ve seen in the past from Kookai.
I photographed the backstage and runway action for Style Melbourne. Here’s a sneak peek!
