Sydney Fashion Week | Jenny Kee
Jenny Kee moved to London and became involved in the Swinging London and undergound scene, where she sold ethnic and retro clothes, cast-off Dior clothes, and Indian embroideries to a hippy clientele. While being interviewed for TV series Talking Heads, she claims that during her time in London, she had a brief sexual encounter with John Lennon...In 2006, she published her autobiography and account of her life in swinging London, A Big Life." Since then, she's collaborated with Linda Jackson to create a line of sweaters with emblems one of which was owned by Lady Di, she's been painting big red beautiful flowers, and created a line of gorgeous colorful print scarves.
This new collection is a fun cacophonous reflection of her career, with lots of bright ethnic prints, colors and print mixing.
