Stonnington Fashion Hall Of Fame

In 2008, Being inducted into the City of Stonnington – Fashion Hall of Fame is the greatest honour Paris has ever received, his two favourite Australian designers, Jenny Bannister and Karen Merkel are both past inductees.

Paris was quoted in the Launceston Examiner at the time saying “This is probably the highest honour anybody in fashion in Australia can receive, apart from your face on an Australia Post stamp – I think that one will take a while longer to achieve”. One of the most outstanding outcomes of the Hall of Fame was the press received. Stonnington Leader, Launceston Examiner, Catholic Life and The Gippsland Times (the paper from Sale – where Paris grew up) all wrote very detailed stories on the life’s work of Paris Kyne. This was particularly pleasing, as fashion press is usually “fluff, colour and movement”, serious articles are always appreciated.
