Paris Kyne

A Fiery Romance

The Spring launch of 2004. Shown in the Engine Room of the Fire Services Museum of Victoria, corner of Gisborne Street and Victoria Parade, East Melbourne. The Engine Room houses the southern hemisphere’s largest collection of restored fire engines and was built in 1890. The lookout tower behind it was the tallest structure in Melbourne at that time and was then known as the Eastern Hill Fire Station.

And the press wrote - “Where’s the fire? It was a day of brass helmets and haute couture headwear when designer to the stars Paris Kyne launched his 2004 Spring/Summer Collection on Tuesday. The red hot range was unveiled against a quirky fire engine backdrop at the Fire Services Museum in Victoria Parade (well where else would you unveil a headwear range titled A Fiery Romance?)”

“With the onset of Spring Racing Carnival madness, Paris Kyne launched the hottest styles, colours and designs in headwear. Red is heralded as THE colour trend of the season, white for attention and a red rose for passion.”
