Habitat is inspired by the spaces around us – the fusion of the wild and the controlled underscored by the structures, shapes, colours and comforts of everyday living.
Positioned against the dramatic backdrop of Bondi Icebergs the show was a kaleidoscope of natural tones including desert sand, rusty, rich caramel and cinnamon tones.
“For this show, we kept the hair quite raw with a ponytail and then created a beautiful sharp, architectural fringe over one eye,” said Renya.
“To create the look we used the new ghd Brush range in conjunction with the ghd Gold Series styler to get that extra sleek and smooth finish,” she said.

Dramatic dark fringes collided with Kirrily’s cinnamon, slate and copper shades and the signature print of the season – the Bengal print, inspired by Kirrily’s new Bengal cat. This beautiful animal in the designer’s home inspired the original concept of the wild meeting the controlled.
Key looks from the collection include asymmetrical dresses in delicate silk mesh, suede 70s style flared trousers, signature lightweight summer knitwear, backless tiered silk georgette gowns and dramatically draped metallic jerseys.
“After discussing this concept with the wonderful Renya Xydis we came up with the look for the show: long, neat ponytails with strong architecturally cut fringes in contrasting hair shades. It’s fashion forward, but still compliments the range,” Kirrily said.
Get the look:
1. Prep the hair with ghd Miracle Mist and blow dry in with a ghd Ceramic Vented Radial Brush.
2. Using the ghd Gold Classic styler, (or ghd Gold Max styler for longer hair) smooth out each section of the hair, then pull it up into a tight, high ponytail and secure with hat elastic.
3. For this look, hair wefts were glued back on the head at the top of the ponytail to create the fringe. Pull the fringe over the eyes and smooth out with a ghd styler.
4. Cut the fringe in a sharp, diagonal line across the face.
5. Finish with ghd Ultimate Hairspray for extra hold.
Make up was equally as earth-inspired with MAC senior artist Nicole Thompson directing the looks.
“We custom-created a terracotta-like colour for Kirrily’s collection. We wanted the make-up to pull out the key elements of the collection without taking away from them,” said Thompson.
