Think of some of the most groundbreaking and exciting new designers to grace the fashion world over the past decade and I bet that at least half of them would owe their initial success to the help of one extremely talented woman with an exceptional eye for talent and her legendary company Fashion East.
Lulu Kennedy skyrocketed the careers of now-established designers such as Henry Holland, Roksanda Ilincic, Holly Fulton, Jonathan Saunders, Richard Nicholl, Louise Gray and Gareth Pugh to name but a few and in Fashion East's 10 years of success has managed to maintain that high level of standard in each designer chosen for representation. In homage to this greatest of fashion accolades, and to say a thank you to the woman who
launched their flourishing collections, many of these designers have stepped in to add their key pieces to Kennedy's LuLu & co collection. Comprised of some of the most exclusive and iconic pieces, this is a collection that epitomises the originality and eclecticness of Fashion East and involves either re-issued designs or popular styles with a different colour or fabric twist; Gareth Pugh's patent leather dress, Holly Fulton's renowned printed dress and Jonathan Saunders' ombre maxi are all there.
Matches and Harvey Nichols have the collection, available now to those lucky enough to have the money to purchase, and available for looking/touching/potential trying on only for the rest of us... sigh!
