My focus is on outerwear; designs rooted in functional and traditional garments, utility-wear and sportswear. I am always inspired by climate, environment, people, and lifestyle. I approach design with a story or character in mind, and develop textiles and garments that fit into that imagined world. Unusual textile surface design and interesting fabric combinations are key elements in my collections.
As an Irish designer, I embrace our cultural infatuation with the ever changing weather. For AW18 I’ve worked with coated textiles inspired by the colours and textures of Irish landscapes enhanced after heavy rain or snow fall. Garments reference elements of traditional Irish country-wear as well as Arctic dress.
My collections are non-trend based with many trans-seasonal garments designed to last and be worn time and time again.
