Fun and glamour on parade as Cunard’s second Transatlantic Fashion Week sets sail

Cunard’s second Transatlantic Fashion Week set sail today on Queen Mary 2, bringing together some of the most reputable names within the fashion industry for seven days of runway shows and exclusive unveilings.

The British fashion designer Julien Macdonald, who is known for dressing some of the world’s best-known style icons including Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion and Kim Kardashian in his signature red carpet gowns, will be showcasing some of his most iconic pieces.

He will stage two runway shows and take part in a Q&A about his inspirational fashion career.

The cruise concludes in New York on 7 September to coincide with the launch of New York Fashion Week.

Macdonald said: “Cunard’s Transatlantic Fashion Week is such an exciting concept that celebrates the world of fashion in an iconic and timeless venue, the Queen Mary 2. I’m looking forward to having a week on board and bringing some fun and glamour to Cunard’s guests.”

Other fashion greats on board include fashion historian and style commentator Colin McDowell who will provide a series of fashion illustration workshops and an inspirational talk during the voyage.

In addition Karl Dunkley, the founder and CEO of Royal Warrant holder Grosvenor Shirts, Jermyn Street, will reveal the craftsmanship behind a classic tailored shirt.

Guests on board will attend exclusive first look runway shows featuring collections from the one of the world’s most revered fashion colleges, Parsons School of Design graduates.

New to the Transatlantic Fashion Week and a first for cruise is the introduction of Mulberry and the launch of its autumn/ winter 2017 range.

Angus Struthers, Cunard’s Vice President, said: “Although Transatlantic Fashion Week is only in its second year, it is already building quite a reputation as a must attend event attracting some of the world’s foremost fashion designers and commentators.

“Queen Mary 2 provides the perfect backdrop for what promise to be some amazing shows, headlined by Julien Macdonald.”
