Fashion Review Irish Fashion Designer Alison Conneely. When it comes to innovating Irish fashion designs that are inspired by women throughout Irish history, then think of one of Ireland’s most exciting and talented fashion designers, Alison Conneely.

This award-winning Irish designer and recipient of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland Future Makers Award, is carving quite a niche for herself on the world wide fashion stage for her handcrafted contemporary clothing designs.

Born on the Ardbear Peninsula, in Ireland’s iconic western landscape terrain, Connemara in Co Galway, Conneely’s contemporary Irish designs take on a near organic twist with many of the fabrics used in her designs being hand dyed locally on the Ardbear Peninsula, from rock moss, gorse, and seasonal heather blooms. A selection from her headwear collection is woven from organic wool on her family farm. Flora and fauna of the Connemara landscape inspires the template of her unique tailoring methods.

Back in 2016, Alison was selected by the National of Museum of Ireland here in Ireland as the Irish design representative for the 1916 centenary commemorations where her show ‘The Shuttle Hive: A Century of Rising Threads’, included a commemorative design collection explored through the lens of the modernist movement, the agency of revolt and myth, as identity paradigm for Irish women.

Alison’s work has been featured on Hollywood’s Red Carpet when earlier this year she designed a gown for Film Director Louise Bagnall at this year’s Academy Awards 2019. Today, Conneely divides her time between her showroom and studio on Dublin’s iconic Stephen’s Green and her Connemara Farm. In Dublin her clients can browse through her extensive collection of day, evening, event, ceremony & occasion wear.

Alison’s inspiring fashion collections cater for every social event possible with her designs including the use of beautiful fabrics from some of the finest artisan mills in the world.

As one of Ireland’s leading fashion designers who is able to compete with the best names and brands on the international fashion circuit, Alison Conneely’s fashion pieces can be viewed and purchased in Bloomingdales in New York, Havana Boutique in Donnybrook, Kalu Emporium in Naas and Granny’s Bottom Drawer, Kinsale in Cork.

If you appreciate all that is great about Irish fashion where beautifully handcrafted garments are fused with the clever use of silk and woven wool designs, then Alison Conneely’s fashion collections are essential viewing.
