Perth designer Kym Ellery has shown her signature billowing silhouettes during Paris Fashion Week for the past four seasons, but now she’s finally making her debut on the Chambre Syndicale’s official schedule.
WWD reports that 31-year-old Kym will showcase the Spring 2016 collection from her label, Ellery, on October 6 at 9.30 a.m., with the Paris venue still to be confirmed. “It feels a little surreal, but also like I’ve been given the green light to just go hard,” she told the publication.
Kym is the third Australian designer to show as part of Paris Fashion Week’s official schedule, following Collette Dinnigan and Martin Grant.
Bassike, Camilla and Marc, Christopher Esber, Ginger & Smart, Michael Lo Sordo, Romance Was Born and Strateas.Carlucci will also present Spring 2016 collections as part of the Australian Fashion Chamber’s Australian Designers Abroad Showroom in Paris.
Paris Fashion Week follows the highly anticipated New York Fashion Week, where Aussie regulars TOME, Zimmermann, Dion Lee will be joined by Rebecca Vallance.
Sydney-based House of Cannon will be showing for Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion runway, and the likes of Bec & Bridge, Duskii Active, Emma Mulholland x Mambo will take part in Fashion Palette’s showcase.
