Just a Moment (2007)
The Spring launch of 2007 staged at the National Trustís Portable Iron Houses in South Melbourne.
Every hat and head piece that we have made for this season has been inspired by European folklore, but we have mixed them up slightly, so that they are fractured fairytales.

Trust Me, Believe Me, THRILL ME (2005)
The Spring launch of August 2005 shown in the Prop Room of Mannequin Revolution.
This firm have restored all of Paris's mannequin head collection over the years and as Paris always wanted to stage a launch with a cast of thousands, why not use a venue with hundreds of naked plaster mannequins to fill in as the extras?

A Fiery Romance (2004)
The Spring Launch of August 2004 shown in the Engine Room of the Fire Services Museum.
Red was the colour of Spring 2004 so a Fire Station was an obvious venue choice with its huge red and gold engines waiting to be whisked away by men in very stylish uniforms and matching hats.

Substance of Dreams (2003)
The Spring launch of August 2003 shown on the balcony over the pool at the Melbourne City Baths.
Paris trains in the gym out behind the pool so this was always going to be a launch venue, with the turquoise of the pool bouncing off the roof.

Theatre of Fashion (2002)
The Spring launch of August 2002 shown in the Dame Nellie Melba Foyer at Her Majesty's Theatre.
Paris is addicted to art and theatre, with its music, costumes and sets never falls to provide inspiration.

Past Exhibitions have been inspired by surrealism, architecture, 1941 Berlin, feathers, chicken wire and Paris's muse.
Then of course there are the exhibitions ideas that will probably never be used, including the self explanatory "13 hats that Grace Jones should wear."
