6 Years ago today!

This picture was taken six years ago today. I had just finished up my internship with Alexander McQueen and decided to get back into doing some design for me, myself and I. One dress very quickly turned into 5 and before I know it, I had a full collection taking over my small London abode!

#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!

The Doyle group have been hugely supportive to ID2015 and their support continued throughout London Fashion Week. As 11 Irish designers descended on London for what was in most cases, their first time showing at LFW, The Doyle Group through a soireé in our honour to celebrate this!

The Bloomsbury Hotel was the location and a totally gorgeous one at that. CEO of the Doyle Collection, Patrick King, gave us the low down on the history of The Bloomsbury and some great stories of past residents who included Seamus Heaney.
