lulu-kennedy-bw-shot.jpgLOVE magazine has a new editor at large. Lulu Kennedy has been given the top job after being chosen by editor in chief, Katie Grand because of her ability to scout out new designers. For her first project, Kennedy will be responsible for transforming the front-of-book section with profiles by Solve Sundsbo and interviews by LOVE editors Alex Fury and Isaac Lock.

"Over the many fun years and nights out that I've known Lulu, I've always been hugely impressed with her ability to discover the brightest new talents, and by her commitment to nurturing young designers as they navigate their way into the fashion industry," said Grand.

You may have heard of Lulu Kennedy before. She is, in fact, the founder of the Fashion East and Man initiatives which fosters and supports emerging design talent in London. She also runs her own fashion label, Lulu & Co, which she began in 2010 as a way of spotlighting stand-out pieces from Fashion East designers and bringing them to consumers. Sounds like shell be a great asset to the LOVE team!
