On a beautiful Sydney morning, Kate & Co. hosted media, stylists and VIP guests at The Atrium, The Grounds of Alexandria to launch Harris Scarfe’s Spring / Summer homewares and apparel collections. 

All Harris Scarfe ambassadors were in attendance, with the lunch hosted by Harris Scarfe fashion ambassador Kylie Gillies, alongside fellow ambassadors Barry Du Bois, Poh Ling Yeow, and designers Shaynna Blaze and Jane Lamerton. 

Guests were treated to bubbly and canapés on arrival, before enjoying a curated 3-course meal underneath the lush floristry of The Atrium. The lunch also featured a short runway parade, styled by celebrity stylist Donny Galella, where guests were shown 18 key looks from the upcoming Spring / Summer ranges across men’s and women’s fashion.
