Silver sequin vest & knickerbockers
Kevin Berkahn returned home from working in Australia in 1984. He opened an exclusive inner-city boutique, Plums, that attracted society women and fashionable professionals. The timing was perfect. Black-tie events were held on a regular basis and there was a big demand for the upmarket eveningwear in which Kevin excelled. His glamorous creations earned him the nickname 'The Dynasty designer', a reference to the long-running 1980s’ television series noted for its stylish clothes. He was often asked to replicate garments from the show. "I received lots of requests for sequinned suits," he says.
