Making Manley #3: SS16 Box Clever

Spring Summer 16 is here and I can't wait to show it off. What you usually get to see is the final, polished product. The truth is, there's a lot more that goes into creating these collections and into the making of our beautiful seasonal campaign and I want to show you just how Team Manley makes this happen.

Unfold Launch Party

Unfold, Irish Designer Showcase @ LFW

Unfold gave 11 Irish designers the opportunity to showcase their SS16 collections at London Fashion Week and Manley was one of the lucky chosen one’s. The unfold project was spearheaded by the DCCOI and headed up by Aisling Farinella as part of #ID2015 and both parties did an incredible job in making it happen.

The Institute of Contemporary Arts was transformed by The Decorators and turned into the set for our SS16 Presentation.

Friday night was the official launch party and presentation and the ICA was heaving with press, stylists, buyers and the odd proud mum! All of whom drooled over the Irish SS16 offering. The rooms housed the best of Irish in fashion, knitwear, jewellery and millinery collections.
