We love hearing about new creative spaces here in Dublin that support Irish designers and artists. The Design House – a new retail and design hub has just opened its doors on number 43 Dawson Street and is set over three floors of a beautifully restored Georgian building.
“The unique nature of the centre brings together a diverse range of Ireland’s established and emerging designers along with some of the country’s foremost artists and craftspeople making the Design House such an unmissable place to shop.”
The Design House is catering for every occasion and taste with bridal wear, occasion wear, retro inspired vintage and cutting edge urban clothing all on offer.
“The Design House is proud to include the finest designs and designers amongst its in-house boutiques. Currently part of The Design House repertoire are Jennifer Rothwell, Maria Cardenas, Bebhinn Flood, Heather Finn, Lisa Shawgi,Lina Stein, Princess Palles Millinery, Anna Vahey Casey, Adam King, Rachel Mc Knight, Yvonne Ross & Chupi to name just a few. In bringing its patrons and customers the highest quality products we will constantly endeavor to include new names and labels. Most importantly, however, is that we ensure that most of our products are hand-made, limited edition and guarantee that all of them are crafted here in Ireland.”
Not only does it offer amazing Irish fashion designers there are also a selection of art, photography and screen prints available. The Design House also has its own in house seamstress, professional workrooms, studio space and consultation areas.
My favourite part of the Design House though has to be that it offers a bespoke customer design service meaning you can meet with the actual designers and work together on creating a design or piece in one of the consultation rooms that suits what you want.
If you are in town make sure you pop in to Number 43 Dawson Street to explore the Design House experience for yourself and support the amazing talent that is in this country!
