SS18, is well underway, yes as crazy as it sounds, we do plan that far ahead! The only thing I’m missing are some key fabrics. Italy is my destination of choice for beautiful, fair trade, high quality fabrics that are good enough for Manley!Read More
Describe your closet in three words. Packed. With. Manley.
What are your closet staples? Leather skirts, leather t-shirts and trainers. That’s me, most days.
What’s your signature piece? No matter the weather, I’m a legs out kind of a girl, so it has to be a leather skirt. In winter, I love layering chunky knits and in summer, I contrast lighter and sheer silk tops with leather skirts. It’s always a leather skirt day to me.Read More

Today is a happy/sad day. Just over two years ago, I made the leap to move from a studio in my family home, to the Guinness Enterprise Centre. I wanted to give Manley the best shot at growing at the GEC seemed like the perfect place to make that happen.We moved into Suite 63 in January 2014. At the time, our new studio seemed huge but as Manley grew, the studio was quickly running out of space for team Manley. All good things must come to an end and so our time in the GEC has too.Read More

I returned home from London in 2010 after interning with Alexander McQueen, with a collection in my suitcase. It was to become the first ever Manley collection, I just didn’t know it yet.

Little did I know the shoot would get picked up by Irish press and help launch Manley.Read More
