Inspired

showcase1Showcase 2014 features the best of Irish design with products from over 400 exhibitors. Ideally you would need two or three days to go around and see it all. Although I had only one day to get to it this year I had done my homework before going and had pinpointed the people I absolutely wanted to meet.

 It is always a real treat to attend the show as the choice and variety of Irish-made products is outstanding.  I went to it on the opening day with fellow designer and fashionista Naomi who has a great eye for spotting the unusual and the quirky.

We stopped at the stands of some of the makers that I stock in Handmade Design Studio such as ArtySmarty creator Angela Cutlhill, Matt Jones, Sarah Mc Kenna, Orla Barry, Blaithin Ennis among others. I discovered their exciting and on trend new collections and cannot wait to receive them in the shop.

I also met some really interesting and friendly new craftmakers whom I had not metbefore and was truly inspired by their unique products.

 The beautifully crafted, high quality items soon to be found in Handmade Design Studio are:

  • Natural and colourful luxury soaps by Baressential
  • Urban-inspired fine silk scarves by Katie Brown
  • And much more …

If you are ever coming to Mullingar, come and have a peek!
