As an Irish woman living in the uk I just love to read about other Irish people doing well in London or anywhere in the world that they may be, it can be such a big move for anyone,, but seemingly not so for Irish Fashion Designer Catriona Hanly, who is settling in quite well into #London Living and on top of that is now been talked about in the #Couture Circles of the #Fashion #World and I have to say I am not surprised.
As a fashion Stylist I have to say I am so in Love with Catriona’s Collections, her Designs are not what are normally seen on the catwalks these days,, everyone plays it safe with their designs,, what ever happened to the daring spectacular designs of years ago, With Catriona I see inspiration, daring to let out the creations that cause heads to turn and I love it,, there is noting like it on the fashion world stages, Catriona Hanly has opened up the doors again of Brilliance of the mind in Fashion and Design and I congratulate her.
The little village in Ireland where Catriona hanly grew up in Roscommon are celebrating one of their own these days, It seems these little villages have hidden gems that keep leaping at us just when we don’t expect it,, Well look at Philip Tracey!! world renowned Milliner he was born and raised in a little village not too far from where Catriona Hanly was raised in Roscommon/ Philip was raised in co Galway on the Border of Co Roscommon,
Catriona has been making her mark in the Design world for quite some time now with her Jewellery and Interior Designs of which can be seen in some of the most beautiful castles in Ireland such as Kilronan Castle and Lough Rynn
