Irish Design Series: Catriona Hanly at Fashion Week
I love working with people in fashion who put their spirit into their work and working with Catriona Hanly never disappoints. This is the collection that people have come up to me raving about after the Fashion Week show last week. London based Irish Designer, Catriona Hanly served her time after fashion college working as a junior buyer for Bergdorff Goodman in New York and returned to Ireland after six years to set up her jewellery line as well as being booked for interior design projects for the homes of many well known people in Irish media. Catriona's natural flair for colour, design, texture and above all else glamour, led to her launching her own feminine yet girl-bossy fashion line. With a personality that lights up every room she walks into, her collections command the same attention and we are really excited about what the future holds for this talented Irish Designer.
