The initiative to support Irish design talent and entrepreneurship was launched by Arthur Cox and spearheaded by finance lawyer Kathleen Garrett, a partner at the law firm's London office.

"Managing both the creative and business demands of this industry requires a unique skillset, and we are proud to play a small part in celebrating Irish design talent, and the accomplishment of the diverse agencies and individuals involved in the Irish fashion business," says Kathleen.

In addition to the designers featured here, the show's line-up also includes fashion and accessories designers Emma Manley, Susannagh Grogan, Róisín Linnane, Derek Lawlor, Bláithín Ennis, Melissa Curry, Zoe Carol, Paula Rowan and Niamh O'Neill.
