Interview: GIRLS ON DRESSES…

My Top 5: Katy Wickremesinghe

 

Communications Consultant Katy Wickremesinghe, founder of KTW London tells Girl Meets Dress which dresses she is choosing to wear for Frieze London week. 

Having worked at a number of high profile red carpet events, with over a decade of experience - from BAFTA to Burberry and also having to be on show for a number of well known clients, Katy knows how important it is to look and feel her best whilst she works. She loves the intersect between fashion, art and luxury and currently works for a number of clients including Blain|Southern contemporary art gallery, GalleriesNow, J&M Davidson, Marie Curie and Goodwood

1.
Erdem
On Sunday I will be attending the Pace Gallery daytime private view. The colour palette of this dress is exquisite, it’s like a painting! I like the fact that for a daytime event it is quite covered and demure but could still take you onto evening cocktails feeling glamorous. Pure sophistication.

Amanda Wakeley
Dress to impress – on Monday I will be at the private for for Blain|Southern’s show with German artist Jonas Burgert, following that I’ll be at an artist dinner and then party for Blain|Southern and the Vinyl Factory so I need a dress which I can chat to clients and VIP’s in but one which will also go from a cocktail environment to a dinner and party. This beautiful dress is perfectly sculpted and I love the fun fringe at the bottom which takes it from a classic dress into a statement piece.

3. 
Beulah
On Tuesday I will be at the Vanity Fair art party with Christie’s auction house so I want to feel demure and I always think red creates a statement. The lines of Beulah make it elegant and lady like and I love the fact it doesn’t show off too much skin. I’m a big fan of ethical fashion label Beulah London. It’s definitely a dress to paint the town red in!

McQ Alexander McQueen 
On Wednesday I will be popping into Frieze to check out what’s on show. Walking around the stands means you can be on your feet a lot so I love the fact this dress could be paired with flats or boots and a longer jacket to look chic and day time. I love the colour combination.

Krystof Strozyna
On Thursday I will be attending a media panel art debate in the morning, grabbing sushi with a client for lunch, making a presentation and then out with girlfriends in the evening at Little House (phew!) so I need a dress which will cover all bases. I think the clean and contrasting colours of Polish designer Krystof Strozyna are incredible. I would pair this with a long black blazer by day and a leather jacket for my evening playtime!

Your first ever dress was: An enormously fluffy white Christening dress. I obviously cried when it got wet.

Your oldest dress: A long white shirt that I tie and wear as a dress. That counts, eh? icon wink Girls On Dresses: Lela of lelalondon.com

Your most expensive dress: …is from Alexander McQueen. Definitely more of a collector’s item, for me!

Seen the most dancefloors: A very, very sparkly black mini. Comfort is key, so it really delivers.

Favourite dress: I could never, ever choose just one!

Mini or Maxi? Mini! I’m only 5ft 2!

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Recently, it has been Selena Gomez. There is always something quirky in her look without venturing too far away from classic bombshell silhouettes.

Describing herself as a Blogger + Designer + Dreamer who makes bespoke goodies, stationery & graphic design at your service, Amma chats to GMD about credit card workouts in the name of fashion, her Jasper Garvida dress crush, and the contents of her 2.5 double wardrobes….

Your first ever dress was: It must of been a baby dress (shame I can’t remember one of most indulged parts of my life), but the first dress I actually remember was my gingham school dress.  I thought I was oh so sophisticated age five,  pulling down the straps to rock it Bandeau style.  I have a picture of that somewhere, got to dig that out.

Your oldest dress: My oldest dress is a little black number, I have expanded a bit I will never get into that dress again without a starvation diet, or being horrendously ill.  But, I look at it and remember my formative years as a human twiglet.

Your most expensive dress: My bridal gown, it is so funny that I am a normally a bargainista, and then the moment that my big day came – my credit card got the most eye watering work out of the century!

Seen the most dancefloors: None, I am ashamed to say that my name is Amma and I have an addiction to clothes.  I have two and a half double wardrobes and 6 drawers of fashion.  Every so often I find something that I forgot I even had. *blushes*  I am in desperate need of wardrobe detoxing!

Favourite dress: My favourite dress of the moment is a maxi dress it is a rust colour, with a cowl neck and little belt – and I love it.  It trails behind me when I walk down the stairs so I feel like a princess.

What was the last event you wore a dress to and what did you wear? The last dress that I wore was to a friend’s party and it was from AQUA.

Mini or Maxi? Now, I am slowly disintergrating I keep getting the legs out before I become mutton – so right now it is all about the minis!

Who are your red carpet idols? Who always gets it right? Red carpet idol is *drum roll* the Stefani, I love Gwen’s style and I adore her L.A.M.B range.

What is your most memorable dress moment? It is a denim dress that I got when I was younger as I worked weeks to get. I scrubbed floors and perfomed all kinds of quasi-entrepreneurial enterprises and it taught me one big lesson; you appreciate the things that you work hardest for.

Jasper Garvida Anna dress Girls on Dresses: Amma Adjubi Archibald of beyondbeyond.co.uk

Jasper Garvida Anna Dress - Hire: £99 - RRP: £620

Which dress would be top of your Girl Meets Dress lust list? I have a big dribbly crush on the the Anna Dress by JASPER GARVIDA.

As someone who always has a new event to attend – how would Girl Meets Dress complement your life? Girl Meets Dress would mean that I don’t have to invest in a 4th wardrobe. I love the idea of the dress being transient, having it that night and then letting it go.  Also, there is something nice about wondering where the dress has been before – what soirees it has been to.  If dresses could talk eh?
