WEATHER | LANDSCAPE | INNOVATION
Special. Limited Edition. Made to order in Ireland.
Inspired by climate, environment, people, and lifestyle. Oversized outerwear garments drive the collections; designs rooted in functional and traditional garments, utility-wear and sportswear.
As an Irish designer, I embrace our cultural infatuation with the ever changing weather. My ideas are based on developing a narrative around a character who adapts to extreme environments and weather conditions. I’ve developed wax cottons and coated textiles inspired by the colours and textures of Irish landscapes after heavy snow or rainfall. Garments reference elements of traditional Irish country-wear as well as Arctic clothing.
My method of working relies a great deal on experimentation and sampling. I’m driven by process, techniques and instinct. Often the discovery of an interesting fabric or technique will spark the beginning of a garment design.
I believe in creative design; slow handmade fashion pieces with impact and charm. My collections are non-trend based with trans-seasonal limited edition garments.
