The documentary looks at the work of fashion designer Jenny Kee who is shown at work at her retail outlet Flamingo Park (established with fellow designer Linda Jackson) and at home in the Blue Mountains, intercut with a fashion show.

Curator’s notes

Jenny Kee was one of the new fashion designers in the 1980s. Her designs were inspired by the Australian bush and environment. The budget was funded by the Women’s Film Fund and the crew are a who’s who of the film industry at the time, including Martha Ansara, Jan Kenny, Tom Cowan, Erika Addis, Sonia Hofmann, Dasha Ross, Lindsay Frazer and Clytie Jessop. Most of these filmmakers have gone on to make outstanding films and have also made important contributions to the industry as teachers and administrators.
