We have a lot to thank Lulu Kennedy MBE for. Since 2000, the talent scout’s fashion initiative, Fashion East
, has given designers like Jonathan Saunders
, Holly Fulton
, Simone Rocha
, Emma Cook
, and Roksanda Ilincic
the chance to show their collections at London Fashion Week — resulting in fame, glory, and a thriving London-based fashion businesses.
Not one to rest on her laurels, in 2010 Kennedy launched her own label, Lulu & Co, which has just gone on sale at Net-A-Porter
. The brand embodies Kennedy’s own eclectic-cool style (seriously, it is always a pleasure to see what she wears at Fashion Week) and this AW’13 collection is no different. Think space-age inspired sweaters and unicorn day-glow print cocktail dresses. With prices starting from £70 for a T-shirt, the cost is a little otherworldly as well, but we know this label is only going to go from strength to strength. Get ahead of the curve now.
