Candypants. Live the Party.
Candypants is the ultimate social and lifestyle brand, loved the world over with its outrageous, award-winning parties, alongside a fabulous fashion line designed for the modern party girl.
Founded by events-entrepreneur Ray Chan while still a student in Leeds, Candypants has been throwing its infamous parties for over 10 years, with once-in-a-lifetime experiences across the UK, Marbella, Dubai, Ibiza and Abu Dhabi. Now holding over 250 events per year, Candypants does wild pool parties, all-day brunches, nightclub takeovers and innovative pop-ups, each drawing in an A-list crowd including the likes of Justin Bieber, Flo Rida and Leona Lewis (to name a few).
Off the back of a successful party business, Candypants launched an online fashion brand in July 2017, channelling its unique party attitude into clothing and accessories at candypants.com. Sassy and confident, each style embodies the fearless spirit of the Candypants girl. Think killer party dresses, playsuits and co-ords, alongside swim and beachwear, darling lingerie and jewellery. There’s also party survival kits and cult essentials, as well as trend-led loungewear for morning-after chic.
March 2018 sees the launch of Candypants SS18 holiday designed collection, with standout swim and beachwear, daytime separates and body jewellery for a party-ready summer ahead. Already spotted on celebrities like Love Island’s Kady McDermott, swimwear pieces are available within a price range of £28-48.
The Candypants girl is typically aged between 21-32. Strong and independent, she wants to look her best for every occasion, but never takes herself too seriously. Candypants fashion gives her the freedom to express herself in a unique and confident way: trend-led and relevant, but unlike anything else on the high street; just like the Candypants parties themselves.
Candypants was founded in 2008 by Ray Chan in Leeds. Thanks to his inherent business experience (gleaned from working at his parent’s Chinese restaurant as a teenager) and an affable, infectious charisma, Ray’s parties fast became the go-to for the city’s party-loving crowd. In an industry better known for dingy bars and pretentious clubs, Ray’s parties were a breath of fresh air: fashionable, unpretentious, easy-going and fun.
This skyrocket success allowed Ray to take his parties to the coolest locations across the globe. Now holding hundreds of events per year, Candypants parties have won many awards, including 2016 Time Out Best Brunch and 2017 Fact Magazine Best Brunch. His ethos is to be different and, most importantly, keep things fun. He’s a firm believer that smiling and laughing wins over pouting and posing, regardless of status or celebrity.
With parties in America and Asia next on the horizon, Ray Chan continues his mission to unite the world’s most glamorous, fun-loving people through unforgettable party experiences and fabulous fashion in 2018 and beyond.
