Last Wednesday evening, The 5 to 9 Life was invited to attend the Runway show of KOOKAÏ’s new Spring/Summer collection for 2015/16.
As it has become somewhat of a tradition over the last couple of years, we were privy to gain backstage access to the show – held at Sydney’s Carriageworks this year – and had an exclusive sneak peek into the hair and make-up looks for the night; the accessories that the models would be styled with (Keep an eye out for the shoulder jewellery!) and of course all the clothes that would be adorned on the beautiful models running around backstage.
Internationally renowned supermodel Shanina Shaik flew in from Los Angeles to strut her long legs down the runway, and each time she did, the crowd cheered her on. But can you blame them? The girl is an absolute GODDESS.
The latest collection, ‘East Meets West’ is a combination of classic black and white, mixed with eclectic prints and pops of bright colours that catches your eyes!
“This season the Australian brand takes on the culture and richness of Istanbul Turkey, with both Asian and European influences seen through sharp modern styling, classic clean lines and unique textures and fabrics.”
Peep some of our favourite looks within this review, and watch the final walk below!
Til next season.. 😉
