Fiona Leahy is not just any event planner. The young creative director of her eponymous events and design studio has styled parties for anyone from powerhouse fashion brands like LVMH and Dior to Qatari royalty. Born in rural Ireland, she moved to New York at the ripe age of 19 before setting up shop in London. She dipped her toes in the event world working as an assistant creative director at Garrard—throwing events like Jade Jagger's 30th birthday pajama party and in-store performances by Dita Von Teese.

Her big break came when Von Teese asked her to plan her wedding to Marilyn Manson in Ireland eleven years ago—she knew it was time to branch out on her own. Semaine recently visited the party planner to the stars at her studio in London, and got a glimpse into her everyday life and discuss all things event planning. We tapped the party powerhouse to share her best career and entertaining tips with us.
