I got chatting to Richard Donelan the creator of Irish Start Up TV in the lush surroundings of Bloss! We talked all things Manley, how it began and where it’s all going. We also talked all things Bloss and our amazing 40 Irish designers under one roof. And finally we spoke about the power of being Irish in NYC!
Designer Emma Manley
Manley's studded and perforated leather skirt is definitely an eye catcher. This high waisted skirt is hand crafted in Italy from a soft perforated suede. Fully lined for the smoothest fit. This skirt is our mid length of the AW17 season, sitting above the knee.
Rounded and conical studs in antiqued gold, silver and black adorn this super soft suede skirt to give it the wow factor. Here is an up close and personal look at the detail...

Number of Studs: 490
Stud Colors: 4
Stud Types: 10
Hours of Studding: 9
After the 9 hours of studding (at least) that it takes to decorate this bad boy, we press them so that the studs have no chance of falling off. That process takes another several hours before it is time to sew the buttons on!
All the embellishment is done in the Manley Studio based in Dublin, Ireland after we receive the leather pieces from our factory in Italy. We handpick our leather from Italy every season so we know our customers are getting the best of the best. This is a very special piece that takes time and dedication to finish, hence why it is featured in our Spotlight Series!!
