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.

RTE Lifestyle Show chats to Emma Manley

Taragh Loughrey Grant invite me in to chit chat on the RTE Lifestyle Show about all things Manley. I’m not going to lie, I wish we had more time. We had so much to talk about but we go through what we could in the short 30 shorts minutes. Everything in there from college days, interning at McQueen, dressing the beautiful Aoibhin Garrihy for her big day and Manley's hopes for the future. Have a listen here folks!

We all love a good sample sale right? But what happens when it’s a sample sale for 9 Irish Designers? We have your attention now don’t we!

The RSAI on Merrion Square will open it’s door at 10am Thursday the 7th of April and won’t close them until 5pm Saturday the 9th of April. That gives you plenty of time to come by and bag yourself a beautifully made, Irish designed, made to last piece.

We understand that shopping is thirsty work so our friends over at Tiger Beer have kindly offered to quench our thirsts with ice cold bottles at the ready while the lovely crew at Propercorn have decided to keep those appetites at bay with their delish popcorn treats!

#BlackFriday Irish Designers Sale

This year I wanted to offer Miss Manley more than just a #BlackFriday online sale so we gave you a bricks and mortar #BlackFriday Sale. What’s more, I asked along nine other designer buds of mine to join in on fashion fun!

Awesome Irish designers Jill De Burca, Niamh O’Neill, Laura Kinsella, Giovanna Borza, Mona Swims, Willow & Clo, Electronic Sheep, Capulet & Montague all joined Manley for three days of a 30% off current season sale.

The RSAI on Merrion Square has been a long standing fave location for Manley events and sales so we figured, if it aint broke don’t fix it, and so we hit it up again!

RSAI Irish Designers Black Friday Sale

A huge thank to you all for coming by the Irish Designers #BlackFriday Sale! I hope you picked up some well deserved bargains just in time for the silly season x
