Alison Conneely is a designer, stylist & art director from the Ardbear Peninsula in the West of Ireland.
2017 saw Alison Conneely design her first Bridal Collection. After a series of bridal commissions from her private clientele she merged her love of the world's finest materials, elegance, and modernity to create a striking collection, an offering she felt was missing from the bridal market.
In 2016 she was selected as commissioned designer for The National Museum of Decorative Arts & History, Ireland under the 1916 Centenary Programme. Her show 'The Shuttle Hive: A Century of Rising Threads', a commemorative design collection, explored through the lens of the modernist movement, the agency of revolt and myth, as identity paradigm for Irish women.
In 2014 she launched 'A Faul Bag', a timeless, minimalist leather handbag crafted in Italy.
In 2013 she won the coveted Future Makers award from the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland DCCoI.
Her design work is a continuous exploration of her homeland Faul in Connemara. Alison works with the finest fabric mills in the world to create pieces that will last a lifetime. Her modernist collections have appeared in Vogue, Dazed & Confused, Sunday Times Style, & Harpers Bazzar and are stocked nationally and internationally.
She works as a stylist and costume designer for print editorials, TV commercials and advertising campaigns, and as consultant, producer and creative director on projects ranging from fashion shows to fashion exhibitions and installations.
