Diane’s Lookbook: Adding Some Zip To Your Life

In today’s Diane’s Lookbook, I spent some time with a dear friend of mine, Janice, catching up while she tries out one of my newest tops, The Verve Zip.

Diane's Lookbook: Adding some zip to your life

Janice and I go way back; we met through mutual friends and her bubbly personality and cheeky sense of humour reminds me so much of myself. It obviously didn’t take long for us to become fast friends. I think it’s absolutely wonderful how involved she is with her dance troupe, Hourglass Caberet.

Being a busy entrepreneur, mother and dancer (among many other things!), there are so many reasons why Janice is the perfect Diane Kennedy woman. But I think the most inspiring is her commitment to being Vegan.

Because of the nature of our Bamboo fabric, I’m pleased to be able to be one of the few local designers to be able to provide Vegans like Janice quality garments  that she can wear guilt-free.

Our Verve Zip is actually the next generation of our Conviction Zip. We kept the bold zipper, but in place of the motorcycle jacket collar, we’ve added our signature asymmetrical collar and princess seams. To go that extra mile, we also included gussets & gathers as an extra flattering detail.

It’s interesting to note that our recently re-released Grace Tunic (see our previous DK Lookbook) did so well in our merlot colour that we decided to use it for the Verve Zip, as well. We think it looks lovely against the beautiful autumn colours!

It was such a pleasure spending some time with such an inspiring woman and it pleases me to know such a motivating and fun personality!
