The Belfast Design Week curators have been smitten with new designer Jeremy Huddleson ever since we first spotted his clothes at the 2016 Ulster University
One of Northern Ireland’s millinery matriarchs, Marie-Claire Ferguson will be debuting her latest collaboration with print artist Lucy Turner entitled Paperhat at Designed By.
As well as celebrating NI’s existing talent, Designed By. is also about highlighting up-and-coming fashion designers such as Derry based designer Kyree Forrest. Penned as “One to Watch” by the Irish Innovation Awards, we already can’t take our eyes of this new brand. We're styling Kyree's designs with AW16 collection from minimalist everyday jewellery brand Lines and Current.
