Description

Step into Paradise explores the compelling stories and creative practice of iconic designers Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson, whose pioneering style created a bold and unashamedly Australian fashion identity.


Developed in close collaboration with Jenny and Linda, this first in-depth survey captures the dynamic energy of their partnership and draws on over four decades of their work and archives, including more than 150 garments, textiles, photographs and artworks. The book's vivid photography brings to life their exuberant designs, inspired by the colour and culture of Australia from flora and fauna to bush, reef and rainforest. The images sit alongside first-person pieces from Jenny and Linda, and contributions from key people who have known and collaborated with the designers.


Step into Paradise celebrates the designers' rainbow revolution that swept Australia off its feet and continues to enthral decades later.
