Kirrily and Fernando make a Rukus in their Designer creations
Renowned Australian Fashion Designers Fernando Frisoni and Kirrily Johnson tore up the streets of Sydney yesterday in their brand new customised cars, for the launch of the Toyota Rukus. Both presented stand out collections at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2010, with Kirrily focusing on an eclectic tribal theme, and Fernando embracing ultimate city chic. Teaming up with Toyota for their latest trendy urban creation, the designers each customised their Rukus vehicles based on the RAFW collections.
The latest vehicle set to hit Australian urban streets, is the quirky styled Toyota Rukus. With the black and white striped tribal creation from Kirrily Johnson, and the mottled pink patterning from Fernando Frisoni, the two custom cars certainly made a statement at Australian Fashion Week!

The Rukus is perfect for those wanting to cruise the city streets in spacious comfort, while adding your own sense of style to the vehicle.. and Fernando and Kirrily are no exception! For the launch at The Loft Bar in King St Wharf, the two designers participated in the fast paced challenges of simulated modern life: The Ikea challenge and the Baby Challenge.

The super fun activities involved weaving through obstacles and picking up Ikea boxes, as well as their very own plastic baby from ‘creche’. Well outside of their usual line of work, Fernando and Kirrily whizzed through the challenges!

The self-confessed Rukus-lovers will keep their unique and statement-making vehicles, cementing their individual styles as they jet set around Sydney. The car is based on the popular Scion model that has cruised the likes of Fifth Avenue, New York for almost decade. Bringing a world of American chic to the streets of Australia, the Rukus is sure to be on the wish list of statement pieces this season!
