Alison Conneely returns to her Connemara roots to inspire and inform a mythical apparel vision. Future lines, sculpted from the lifelines of the ancient past.
We design and produce handcrafted contemporary clothing.
Our practice is rooted in the rich textile tradition of Ireland's dramatic Atlantic coast, and our design philosophy is imagined through a delicate modernist lens. Fine lines, metamorphic contours, mellow tones with shades of iridescent.
Many of the fabrics are hand dyed locally on the Ardbear Peninsula, from rock moss, gorse, and seasonal heather blooms. A selection of our headwear is woven from organic wool on our family farm. The flora and fauna of Connemara’s botanical wonderland inspire the template of our unique tailoring methods.
Alison Conneely is a designer, creative director and stylist from the Ardbear Peninsula on Ireland’s Atlantic coastline. In 2016 Alison was chosen as Irish design representative by the National of Museum
of Ireland for the 1916 centenary commemorations. 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.
Alison is an award winning designer and recipient of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland Future Makers Award. Living in Ireland with her partner Emmet she divides her time, between her Dublin studio and Connemara Farm.
