Phoebe Tonkin speaks to designer Kym Ellery after her show.
INSPIRATION FOR THE SHOW
Bandits, runaways rebels, renegades and nuns. It’s about the juxtaposition between good and bad, messy and clean.
Graz, who collaborates with Ellery for Graz x Ellery Sunglasses, was the DJ. “We wanted to start high energy music, sounded like they were speaking in tongues and then progressing to a more orchestrated and elated sound. And of course Rihanna, at the end. ”
The show was at an incredible location in the city, which was built in 1878 and took Kym a year to woo the owners to allow them to do the show there. While I was there they were obviously making the most of the incredible space, by shooting the campaign as well as the lookbook straight after the show.
