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!

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!! 

It only took 7 years!  🙏

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.

We love The Garrihy’s Sisters and they they love Manley!

Dream job? Dressing the Garrihy sisters, obviously! It's happened before, most memorably for Aoibhín's wedding and we hope it'll happen again. They all have their own individual style but all three love Manley and oh boy, we really do adore dressing them.

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.
