The power of being Irish in New York City!

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!

Inside the Wardrobe of Ireland Top Designer Emma Manley

Describe your closet in three words.  Packed. With. Manley.
