Katie Eary & Lulu Kennedy MBE

Innovation. Sustainability. Fashion

Katie Eary talks about the influence of subculture on her work and discusses with Fashion East Founder & Director, Lulu Kennedy MBE, emerging talent within the industry and Lulu’s roles as one of the most influential figures in the industry.

Graduating from the RCA with an MA in ‘Menswear in Design’ in 2008, Katie Eary won MAN in 2010, awarded NEWGEN in 2011 and now shows mens and womenswear independently as part of LC:M. Eary’s subsequent collaboration with Kanye West (DONDA) launched her onto the world stage. Like the underground movement that continue to inform her work so Eary rises up to face the challenges of the future.

Lulu Kennedy MBE is the Founder and Director of Fashion East & MAN and the Lulu & Co clothing line. She is also Editor-at-large of Condé Nast’s biannual LOVE magazine as well as working as a consultant for brands.
