Irish-born, London-based Fiona Leahy is the founder and creative director of her eponymous event design agency Fiona Leahy Design. A former fashion stylist, Leahy has spent the last 15 years travelling the world, from Los Angeles, Florida and Mexico to Baku and Doha, staging distinctive, dramatic and daring events for an elite roster of global fashion brands, royalty and private clients. Revered for elevating ‘tablescaping’ into a highly sought-after art form, the table serves as her canvas, against which she applies her signature ‘matchimalism’ approach of layering print on print with an intricate bird’s eye attention to detail and a flourish of idiosyncratic wit to create unique and unforgettable dining and celebratory experiences.

About the project

"I was inspired by the beautiful striped pattern Louis Vuitton designed for the lining of his first trunk. Transforming a plywood trunk into a miniature dining table, I created a tablescape as if Louis were attending his own birthday celebration – playing with the idea of that very first distinguished red and taupe stripe across a striped tablecloth, striped plates, striped vase and glasses, topped off with a striped cake with a birthday candle on top. A napkin, embroidered 'LV' with a gold rope work, provides the perfect finishing touch in ode to the master of the monogram.
