My second collection is out now – what do you think?
This week I got one step closer to a BAFTA, not actually winning one (yet!) but I hosted The BAFTA Red Carpet Masterclass at the Corinthia Hotel in central London.
An inspired event where guests got the inside track from the experts in the know at the styles and trends we can expect the stars to rock at this year’s Awards on the 18th May at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. All of the official Award’s style partners were there including MAC Cosmetics, House of Fraser, Mark Hill, St Tropez, Carat* London and of course the Corinthia Hotel.
The highlight for me was hosting a panel discussion with up and coming actress Ophelia Lovibond and BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry who is pretty incredible – not only did she top the Guardian’s list of the UK’s most influential people in film but she has walked the red carpet over 100 times with everyone from Prince William to Brad and Angelina (jealous!).
Other exciting news this week, it’s with great pleasure that I introduce the second Darren Kennedy for Louis Copeland collection. On the back of a hugely successful first collaboration for Autumn Winter ’13, I’ve teamed up once again with Ireland’s finest tailor to design an exclusive men’s suit capsule collection for Spring Summer.
The new DK x LC collection is a beautifully crafted capsule of six suit styles in the finest Italian fabric, mixed with the quintessentially classic tailoring Louis Copeland is famous for. I’m involved in every aspect of the design process from the very beginning and I have learnt so much, so on a personal note it’s been such an enriching experience. So far the reaction has been fantastic so needless to say that I’m chuffed!
