Kooey RAFW 2011 - Day 4

Day 4 of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week saw the first of my swimwear shows, Kooey.  Kooey's Spring/Summer 2011/12 collection "Desert Dreaming and Sunset" was inspired by the land with particular focus on the Australian Central Desert in the Northern Territory.... The "wilderness of vast valleys, red sand dunes and huge sheer rock walls, cool picturesque waterholes and sandy creek beds of soft white sand."  The prints were designed by artist Anne Hanning who drew inspiration from the rich and vibrant colour palette of the land and layers of the desert.. dashes of pink, yellow, red, purple and orange.  The collection includes one-piece and separate swimwear, kaftans and cover-ups.  I loved the short blonde, red and black wigs and the models posing at three different areas of the runway!
