Atelier 27

Atelier 27 Launched two weeks ago, and has really been such a success. The brain child of Ruth Ni Loinsigh, 27 Drury Street, has just become a hub for Irish Design.

Ruth spotted the need for for an 'incubation centre 'where young designers could be encouraged and guided in what is one of the most difficult industries to survive.

My Claw dress

The quirky building allows for the most amazing displays (my Navy dress hanging on the left)

And... guess who was chosen as one of the lucky designers?! Me!! Currently my separates collection is available to view in the designer showroom and alternative sizes are available to order.

I am also working on two projects for the Atelier, a Ready to Wear Collection which will available mid July, and an in-house Custom Debs Dress and Occasion Wear service.

I hope you are as excited as I am!

Thank you Ruth for all the encouragement.

Off the Rails

My "famous" dress was choosen for the Off the Rails "Fashion Face Off"... and it won! I was so proud, it looked amazing on the television!! The challenge was to create a look that is inspired by Sonya and Brendans favourite Pop Icons!!
