Q My girlfriend loves fashion and design so I want to get her a Christmas present from an Irish designer? Any suggestions?

A With so many talented Irish designers around, let's support them by buying their stunning creations this Christmas.

Try a pair of buttery soft leather gloves by Paula Rowan, based in the Westbury Mall off Grafton Street Dublin and online at www.glovesbypaularowan.com, this store stocks a terrific selection of acid bright leather and suede gloves in various lengths from the wrist skimming to elbow grazing -- great for wearing with cloaks Prices range from €69.97 to €189.95

Talented artist and designer Helen Steele who debuted her collection to much critical acclaim at S/S 2012 London Fashion Week is selling incredible acid bright, abstract print silk scarfs guaranteed to electrify any outfit.

For a cosy funky gift, try Irish knitwear brand Electronic Sheep.

For something precious try one of Galway-born Joanne Hynes's fab crystal collars which will guild any party dress or elevate a humble T-shirt into the realms of couture.
