I create an ever-growing collection of garments inspired by the Irish landscape and the style and stories of the past. My work is based around the values I hold in everyday life – the idea that less is more, and that investing in quality and authentic design will enrich the daily life of an individual. I was born and raised by the sea in Ireland and now live with my family in the Hudson valley, New York. I choose to work with high quality fabrics that recall home, enabling me to maintain a close connection to the rich heritage of craft in Ireland and the UK; in particular Donegal tweed, Irish linen, Scottish cashmere and English ventile cotton- fabrics that are steeped in tradition, hard-wearing and long-lasting. Each garment is carefully produced by hand from a small factory in New York City and the knitwear is made by hand in Ireland.
Respect for the people I work with, my customers and the environment are just as important as the products themselves. The shapes are simple, classic, modern, comfortable and relaxed – seasonless pieces that become foundational objects in your life, reflecting the plain beauty of well made things, to be worn and loved for decades to come.
