New Designers & Events at The Design House
Are You Ready for Autumn?
With the arrival of the new season also comes the arrival of new designers at The Design House. We are delighted to introduce TWIG Contemporary Clothing and Ashleigh Myles Millinery to The Design House family! Take a look at what these fresh faces have to offer . . .
TWIG Contemporary Clothing is designed by 25 year old fashion design graduate Leah Twieg. Having completed a Level 8 Honours Degree in fashion design from Griffith College in Dublin, Leah has launched her own clothing brand geared toward the strong, empowered, and fierce woman of the 21st Century.
The TWIG brand represents Leah’s vision of 21st Century Girl Power, with designs that reflect the style of a driven career woman living in a modern metropolis. TWIG Contemporary clothing is young, fresh, and often imagined with a graphic sensibility. Through bold colours, graphic prints, and sexy silhouettes within a range of everyday pieces, TWIG clothing embraces their customers’ inner strength and confidence.
