Home grown talent
This spring style edit features some of the season's most on-trend looks from top Irish designers - Caroline Kilkenny, Aideen Bodkin and Fiona Heaney of Fee G - all at Kilkenny Shop
Colour, cut, clever innovation - we can enjoy all these design elements and more from a clutch of dynamic Irish designers who are making a name for themselves around the world.
The annual Paddy's Day celebrations are a fitting opportunity to acknowledge Irish talents like Aideen Bodkin, whose occasionwear is top class. And this season, Caroline Kilkenny has proved yet again that she is a genius at turning an everyday jacket into something quite exceptional with a memorable fabric, as evidenced by this stunning image. Finally, Fiona Heaney of Fee G provides style solutions for days out, from First Holy Communions to summer weddings and everything in between. Marian O'Gorman and her team at Kilkenny have been fastidious for decades about promoting Irish talent, and our shoot features homegrown jewellery and accessories designers like Juvi and Orla Kiely alongside affordable international brands.
