celebs are interested in my suits

On Monday I launched my third collection of suits with Louis Copeland.

I can't believe it's our third collection already but it's a testament to Louis that it's so successful - plus the appetite for suits seems to be growing.

Irish men are looking for something different, which is a good thing.

It's a really collaborative process with Louis and it's been such a learning curve putting the collection together.

I have a very clear vision of what I want to achieve aesthetically.

We built a signature look with broad silk lapels, double breasted jackets and waist coasts, strong prints and good fabrics and I think this collection is our strongest to date.

A suit from Darren Kennedy with Louis Copeland is a beautiful piece for men to have in their wardrobes.

What's brilliant is that the suit will also work separately so there are five or six outfit options within one suit.

I've had a few celebs interested in the suits as well. Dermot O'Leary has said he wants one and Graham Norton's (inset) eyes nearly popped out of his head when he saw them at the Attitude Awards recently.
