Internationally-renowned Irish fashion designer Louise Kennedy has become synonymous with modern sophistication and elegant design.
Her magnificent designs for Tipperary Crystal combine age-old Irish craft with sublime contemporary design. According to Louise, the essence of style is “relaxed simplicity”. Her distinguished client list includes Andie MacDowell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Ferguson, Anjelica Huston, Yasmin Le Bon, Kylie Minogue, Enya, Sofia Milos and Meryl Streep.
Modern Irish crystal design
In 1999 Louise began her design collaboration with Tipperary Crystal, creating her acclaimed collection of stemware and giftware. Since then the collection has become the fastest growing brand of designed crystal in the Irish marketplace, with an ever-increasing following in the UK and US markets.
In April 2005 she launched her spectacular chandelier and lighting collection to international acclaim.
Throughout her work, there is an emphasis on the highest standards of workmanship and fabrication, which appeal to those who value discrete luxury and contemporary glamour.
Her designs are classic yet timeless. Ireland’s first female President, Mary Robinson chose to wear a Louise Kennedy design for her inauguration in 1990.
In 1997 Louise was chosen to design the uniforms for Aer Lingus. It is a testament to Louise’s classic designs that the airline’s uniforms still look so stylish more than a decade later.
In Ireland, her clothing is available at her headquarters in Dublin’s Merrion Square, as well as Brown Thomas Dublin and selected boutiques. Her London flagship store in Belgravia epitomises her elegant and sophisticated style. The fashion label is also stocked in Harrods.
