Aoife Kirwan studied fashion design in Dublin before attending London College of Fashion to study millinery as well as taking private tuition with couturier and milliner Thomas von Nordheim before setting up her business designing and handcrafting hats in the Rep. of Ireland where she is now based. Aoife is a proud member of the Council of Irish Fashion Designers http://irishfashiondesigners.com/aoife-kirwin/index.html and the Crafts Council of Ireland http://directory.ccoi.ie/clients/member/25255. She has also been selected as a finalist for Millinery Designer of The Year 2014 at the Fashion Innovation Awards.

All of her pieces are handcrafted using traditional millinery techniques and the highest quality luxurious materials. She works with fur and wool felt, straws and sinamay as well as foundations that she blocks in buckram and covers with materials such as silks, velvets and cashmere. The range of trimmings on her designs is vast but they include hand-cut and curled feathers, vintage silk veiling, handcrafted flowers, freshwater pearls, ribbons, sequins & beads.

You can contact us to make and appointment to veiw designs at the studio or for a personal consultation for a custom order.
