Meet the face of H! by Henry Holland Swim

Meet Fiona Kennedy, the face of the H! by Henry Holland high-summer swimwear range.
Spotted by Henry Holland himself, Fiona is set to become the envy of fashion-followers across the country. Henry Holland told us “Fiona caught my eye immediately with her entry for our original ‘find a face’ competition. She looks lively, happy and fun so I thought she’d be the perfect girl to represent the new H! swim range.”
Fiona entered a competition to have her face included in a one-off print designed by Henry Holland and used on a handbag and scarf in the Autumn H! by Henry Holland range. After seeing her picture, Henry decided to approach her to model his high summer swim range.
Here’s what our swimwear buyer Sasha Nagalingam had to say: “At 5’4” Fiona might not meet traditional criteria for a professional model, but she is beautiful, a natural on set and has a great personality. Looking at the images she produced, you wouldn’t think for a moment Fiona had never set foot in front of a camera.”
Fiona Kennedy says, “I was a little dazed when I got the call – it was completely unexpected. I’ve never done anything remotely like this before. I’m a secret nerd, with a naturally small frame and never in a million years would I have thought I’d be modeling swimwear, especially for such big names like Henry Holland or Debenhams.
Come back soon to read all about Fiona’s day as a model in her guest blog post.
