Meet Scarlett Ballantyne

Working in such a creative industry, The Team at Diane Kennedy have had the chance to work with some incredibly talented and wonderful personalities. Once and awhile, we like to tip our hats to the people who have supported us throughout the years. Our good friend, Scarlett Ballantyne, is one of the first people we thought of. Not only is she one of our faithful customers, she has also contributed a lot to the company in the last six years.

It certainly doesn’t feel like so many years have passed since Scarlett walked through our doors. Having had ample experience modeling as a young adult and again in her 30s, Scarlett was very familiar with camera when we hired her to model for us in 2010.


As a very busy Creative Entrepreneur, Scarlett spends her days managing and providing engaging content for her freelance clients. She also maintains her own blog and is contributing writer for sites like UrbanMoms & StimuliMag. More recently, her passion for writing has lead to publications in Huffington Post and XO Jane. We’re so excited to see where her writing takes her!

Lucky for us that when we had the chance to work with her, we also discovered she is a professional makeup artist. This lead to a few gigs, not in front of the camera, but beautifying behind it. Sometimes she even doubled as both!

We love that Scarlett is such a avid DK fan as well; while she was on holiday, we asked her what her favourite items were and she shared this with us:

Once I started wearing the fabrics, I was hooked. My favourite piece is the Tie-Dye Mod Tunic which I have on vacation with me! And I can’t wait to get the new Market Tunic in turquoise and purple. And of course I could always use another jacket, too.

It always makes us so happy when we hear wonderful comments like that. Another successful convert! We’re so proud of how driven she is and we look forward to seeing where she goes in the future!
