An Irish Fashion Designer
Since establishing her eponymous label in 1983, Louise Kennedy quickly became synonymous with elegance, understated style, texture, and exquisite detail; her use of colour and intricate embellishment, taking luxury to a new degree. In 1989, Louise was commissioned by President Mary Robinson, the first female President of Ireland to design for her inauguration ceremony. She has also dressed members of the British, European and Middle Eastern Royal Families and many international award-winning actresses. Louise has shown her fashion collections globally and exports her work all over the world. A Touch of Ireland DMC can arrange for guests to meet with the team in her Georgian house located on Dublin’s Merrion Square where they will learn about Louise Kennedy and are brought on a tour of the building while exploring treasures that Louise has collected on her travels.
