“I have held a keen interest in fashion and design from my teenage years, developing my sewing skills in Muckross Weavers. I attained a Diploma in Fashion Design at Mallow College of Design and Tailoring, whilst concurrently studying Marketing at IT Tralee. My final year College collection was inspired by Muckross House in Killarney, consisting of classic fits, clean lines, with pops of colour suitable for ladies to wear on a variety of different occasions”
Alterations can be done to Women’s, Men’s and Children’s clothes, as well as to most household curtains and cushions. Communion dresses can be let out again, or a piece put into them; little suits can also be altered so they are ready for their Communions and Confirmation in the not so distant future. Get ready for all those Weddings and other events where we are all need to be looking our best.
