As admired and relevant as ever.

Jenny Kee is an Australian fashion icon, with her Australiana prints as admired and relevant as they were when she first started making them in '74.

During this year’s VAMFF Cultural Program, Kee presented her newest limited edition capsule collection, A New Beginning in collaboration The Woolmark Company.

Her 100 per cent ‘CashWool’ lush and original knits were on show, featuring prints reminiscent of when Princess Diana wore the original Koala knit to Australia, pregnant with Price William in her tum.

These ultimate Australian knits (to be treated as much loved art pieces), are made from the highest quality Italian yarn and using advanced knitting technology, making them built to last. The knits are ironically donned with flowers, animals, exotic birds, opals, tropical fish and her totum the Waratah flower.

Hooray for Jenny Kee’s new beginnings!

It's cool to be warm.
The best part of fashion week.
Comfortingly few muscle tees.
All the beauty, mayhem and those fish-tail ponytails.
