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!
Designers Emma Manley and Jenny Huston launch BLOSS Winter Capsule Event at Dundrum Town Centre
Launching on the 11th October and running until December, the BLOSS Winter Capsule event at Dundrum Town Centre is a luxury showcase and pop-up shop of 35 established and emerging Irish designers.
BLOSS founders, designers Emma Manley and Jenny Huston, together with their accountant Paul Haycock, imagined the showcase as a new channel to sell Irish luxury designs. The store will host a range of cutting edge and classic, Irish designed women’s, men’s and children’s fashions as well as homewares, jewellery, millinery and accessories.Read More
This project is a showcase of influential female designers who live and work in Ireland. Today, the Irish Design sector is 25% female and 75% male, this ratio is simply not good enough. Gender balance was the last item on the last page of the Policy Framework for Design Enterprise in Ireland. It’s time to change this and I am honoured to have been chosen for this campaign.Read More

You know at Manley we love our Sample Sales. This time, we’re taking them to the next level. You heard right, we’re doing even more than before! We know our Manley Fans aren't just in Dublin so we’re taking our Irish Designer Sample Sale on the road.
First stop, Dublin 💙 second stop, the rebel county, Cork ❤️
Stay tuned for more info on both of our upcoming Sample Sales in Dublin and Cork and let us know, if there's somewhere else we should be hosting one!
I had the pleasure of popping yet another pin in the Manley Map today, this time it’s Australia, Melbourne to be precise! How cool to know there will be a hip chic strutting the street of Melbourne in her Manley very soon!Read More
“For some, summer means holidays, for me, it means festival season and this year is no different. With Longitude only three days away, I have my outfits picked, the tunes pumping, the ciders chilled and I’m ready to go. I thought I’d help you get in the mood by pulling some of my festival faves from SS17 together to help inspire your festival rig out!”
— Emma Manley
Days are long and you don't want to be lugging around a big bag that needs minding. That's why the Parker bag is perfect with it's adjustable cross body strap, you wont even notice it cooly draped on you, but believe me, everyone else will notice your bold and beautiful, bitchin bag!
Check shirts are a festival staple, but we're kinda tired of them in the Manley studio. We want more so we gave you the Tabby shirt. Leather bust pockets and cuffs will make you stand apart from the festival rags!
Festival wear doesn't all have to be edgy... pretty in pink goes too. Try our pink dungaree or metallic dress while you're twirling around to your favourite tune! Although we still do love that silver metallic ;)
This summer, a wardrobe without yellow simply won’t cut the mustard so we give you this bright and bold sunflower yellow co-ord set! Need we say anymore?
Complete your festival look with bold jewellery. Nothing transforms an outfit like a statement leather studded necklace and so we give you a range of colours to choose from!
Stay comfortable and cool in a slinky jersey number with statement leather collar and cuffs. Easy to pair with a leather mini and wellies or jeans and trainers. Wear it your way!
We love that you're supporting Irish design and so, we're giving you a massive 30% discount off Emma's festival pick's as our way of saying thank you. Just use the voucher code 'FESTIVALEDIT' at checkout.
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
