KOOKAÏ AW17: April 2017

Kookai AW17 Creative direction by Michael Boyd of Mr Boyd

Kookaï’s Autumn/Winter 2017 media launch was drenched in opulence, elegance and timeless romance. The George Ballroom played venue-host to the evening’s do, with cascading floral door features and a stunning hemispherical, interactive floral installation.

Special guests and a selection of Australia’s fashion influencers lined the Ballroom in an L-Shape to view the show.

Michael Boyd created the soundscape for the fashion show and selected tracks that melded beautifully together, inspiring narratives of cool Winter morning walks and romantic nights on the town. Imagine models strutting through the classic Victorian ballroom with Corinthian influence to a Mr Boyd mashup of Dreaming (Hylas) and Heaven Sent (Kasper Bjorke – Nicolas Jaar Remix). For the finale Mr Boyd mixed strings and bird song into the Electric Lovers remix of the now infamous Adore by Amy Shark.

Guests were left visibly wanting more following the finale. Kookaï co-founder Danielle Vagner expressed her absolute rapture with the final result.

Along with model choreography, Mr Boyd also gave lighting direction for show pre-during-and-post show states. The Mr Boyd team also handled model direction back of house, calling them for the show and during changes.
