Here are links to some of my favorite places to scour for gems. I will be updating this as the blog progresses to include places to eat, places to visit, children’s outings and so forth.
HELEN STEELE | WOMENSWEAR
An artist, stylist, designer, former rock and roll front woman and mother of three, Steele is considered to be one of Ireland’s most bankable abstract artists. Seeking to make her artwork more accessible to everyday life, Steele has created a new range of wearable art (wart) that embodies her individual spirit. Her printed kaftans, oversized tees and unisex leggings have attracted leading stores in the Middle-East, Europe and Asia.
