Hello Stevo Podcast featuring designer Emma Manley!

This week I sat down with comedian Stephen Mullen to record an episode for his ‘Hello Stevo’ podcast. This podcast is essentially Stephen in conversation with people, not just comedians, just people he’s interested in talking to about all things life.


This was my first podcast recording since giving birth so there’s some slurping sounds from the main man Tadhg who made his first podcast appearance at just eight weeks old!

We talk motherhood, overcoming loss and the journey to becoming my very own Manley boss! Tune in and let me know what you think!


Spotlight Series: Parker Leather Skirt

 
Parker Skirt
Parker Skirt 2

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...

⭐︎Parker Skirt Stats⭐︎

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!! 

If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It

The Layla Dress is an effortless look that will never go out of style... as you can see we are not getting rid of it any time soon!!

Why Design?

Why Design?

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.

It only took 7 years!  🙏

Sometime things happen when you least expect them. Friday night was one of those. Nominated for Best Irish Designer at the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards, I attended as I do every year, thinking it could never be Manley. This year was different, this year I walked away with the award.

Bye Bye to the GEC

Bye Bye to the GEC

Today is a happy/sad day. Just over two years ago, I made the leap to move from a studio in my family home, to the Guinness Enterprise Centre. I wanted to give Manley the best shot at growing at the GEC seemed like the perfect place to make that happen.We moved into Suite 63 in January 2014. At the time, our new studio seemed huge but as Manley grew, the studio was quickly running out of space for team Manley. All good things must come to an end and so our time in the GEC has too.

6 Years Ago... Today!

6 Years Ago... Today!

I returned home from London in 2010 after interning with Alexander McQueen, with a collection in my suitcase. It was to become the first ever Manley collection, I just didn’t know it yet. I was stone broke but had wonderful friends around me who came together to help me create the shoot that was featured in this article. Little did I know the shoot would get picked up by Irish press and help launch Manley.
