On Thursday August 18th Richard Austin Rees PR & Fashion Management provided 6 Fashion/Commercial runway models and a team of 4 make up artists as well as Set Management and co-ordination for breakthrough  Lingerie designer Kriss Soonik's 2011 Spring Summer Collection Launch entitled "The Odd Couple" .
The launch party & show took place at the Award winning Mcqueen venue in fashionable Shoreditch, London to an industry crowd which included representatives from several Glossy magazines .
Press, media & The World Fashion Network TV Station were in attendance to cover and film the event.

Kriss Soonik explained her idea and inspiration behind "The Odd Couple".

"My collection is all about making the usual unusual, the ordinary extraordinary, and turning the odd couples into winning combinations. The Kriss Soonik girl is determined and creative,striking gold in impossible situations. If the girl can wear underwear as outerwear and make it a winning combination,why cant she fall in love with a handsome reindeer boy? Why do we always have to make the obvious choices,when we just need a little extra to spice up our life ? And in the end the oddest choices can sometimes be the best ones "
