#DKNYArtworks launch in London

Hosted by karaoke queen Cara

Last night, ELLE was there for one of the biggest launches of the season: the #DKNYArtworks party.

Celebrating the London DKNY logo installation – one of ten planned in the ten most fashion-forward cities in the world – and hosted by Cara Delevingne, it will take a lot for this to be beaten.

Imagine an old fire station converted into a neon urban party venue with endless cocktails, Saint beer, hot dogs, pizza, popcorn and gummy sweets at your disposal. Add in performances by Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea and a celebrity-packed crowd, among them Henry Holland and Jourdan Dunn, and you'd be somewhere close.

Amid the hubbub, we caught up with the new face of Material Girl clothing and Cara's 'wifey' Rita about all things DKNY.

'DKNY are really surprising as a clothing line and as a brand,' she told us. 'They really shock you in a good way. I love how comfortable their clothes are, but very sexy at the same time. It's also a lot to do with the colour, as that's what they are known for.

'That's my perspective - I am a big Donna Karan fan. I'm a fan of how she makes women feel.'

The highlight of the evening? Cara 'crashing' Rita's performance, taking the microphone out of her hands and finishing How We Do herself. A hint that Cara's got her eye on chart fame, perhaps?
