About KDK

Dairine Kennedy 

Dairine started her career in a traditional business route by achieving a degree in Commerce in UCD and a 1st class master in Smurfit Business School. Since then she joined Google and has spent the last 6 years there exploring the dynamic world of technology. Throughout this time she always fed her love of fashion by studying different areas of the art world at night. She focused on expanding her artistic skills through completing sculpture, pattern design and fashion courses in both NCAD and the Grafton Academy. Recently Dairine has added motherhood to her CV and now enjoys juggling her 9 month old baby boy while channeling her artistic passion through designing KDK’s new scarf collections.

KDK is an Irish company specialising in designer luxury scarves founded by Keira and Dairine Kennedy.

Sisters who always wanted to create our own range of genuinely individual and cool products.  After doing Degrees/Masters in Commerce & Marketing and getting over 10 years’ experience in the business sector they decided to put this experience to work on their own brand.

Over the past few years they have pursued several creative avenues; painting, photography, jewellery design and sculpture which gave them  a taste for what they wanted the brand to look and feel like.  It was on a trip to India that the sisters were inspired to start a range of scarves using this incredible quality of the cashmere wool and the superior craftsmanship.

They felt there was a niche in the market for high quality wearable scarves with artistic and unique designs and KDK was born.  Luxury cashmere for everyday life.
