Breaking away from its usual mega-runway scene, MYER ambassador Jennifer Hawkins led a bevvy of beauties through The Cutaway in Sydney’s Barangaroo, where the designers’ pallet of predominantly black and white pieces made a chic statement against the venue’s expansive sandstone cavern.

Kevin Murphy and SESSION.MASTER James Nicholson opted for a tight pony to contrast the bold bell sleeves, fringed leather, lace, suede and sequins that dominated the designers’ collections. With accessories ranging from shaker hats to motorcycle helmets, the sleek ‘doo was the perfect choice to take models across the designers’ distinct moments.

The look was inspired by Chloe Sevigny‘s signature wet look with a dry ponytail pulled back at the nape. Though it is most popularly used for Kevin’s iconic beach texture style, HAIR.RESORT was the star player in creating a sleek and polished finish on the runway.

Amid a sea of ponytails, face of MYER Jennifer Hawkins donned wavy locks crowned by a half-up topknot. Her look graduated to an effortlessly chic updo just before a faux summer shower wowed the crowd.
