Yorkshire events company launches swimwear & clothing brand

Candypants lifestyle collection

Leeds-born party brand, Candypants, famous for its pool parties at the W Hotel Dubai, award-winning brunches at the Habtoor Grand and boat parties in Marbella and The Med, has launched a capsule lifestyle collection for 2017.

Having firmly established itself within some of the world’s most desirable locations, Candypants has expanded into the fashion world and partnered with swimwear and lingerie specialists Delta Connex, to produce a unique range of swim, beach and body jewellery, designed for and inspired by the Candypants Events global audience including their Candypants girls.

Launching this July, the Candypants lifestyle collection will include 11 swimwear pieces, 11 beach pieces and seven pieces of body jewellery. The brand’s move into fashion comes as the event company becomes increasingly prevalent on the global event stage, having started life as a weekly club event in Leeds.

Young British entrepreneur Ray Chan, is the mastermind behind Candypants Events having started the business 9 years ago whilst at university in Leeds. Since then, he has grown the brand to its current global status, with big plans on the horizon for 2018 as Candypants approaches its 10th Anniversary.

Ray Chan, Candypants founder, said: “Candypants has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a once-a-week club event in Leeds, we’ve grown into a global brand with a fantastic community of loyal party goers including our Candypants girls. To have the chance to give our fans a brand-new range of party fashion is very exciting.”

Jennie Kecic, head of creative at Delta Connex, joined the company in January after eight years working as a buyer for brands including Boohoo, Bank and Republic, said: “It’s great to be working with such a successful global brand and thriving community, Candypants girls are always right on trend and to create a range for them has been very exciting.

“It’s a perfect partnership for Delta Connex and Candypants, both of which are taking their brand to the next level with this new fashion range.”
