Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year Awards

A couple of weeks ago I was shortlisted, and won the Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year Award in fashion at a beautiful event at the Culloden. Such a thought provoking evening hearing the stories of inspirational woman in education, healthcare, the voluntary sector and woman who have overcome personal tragedies to go on to help…

Éadach’s Royal Seal of Approval!

A couple of weeks ago at the launch of our Drawn to the Sea exhibition I had a chat with the lovely Mayor of the Causeway Coast and Glens. She had a ‘special’ event coming up an wondered would I be free to rustle up an outfit? Turns out, she was thinking of something from…

Brown Thomas Create: The Éadach Collection

So after a few months of musing, scribbling, designing, sampling, deadlines and packing (and just the odd tantrum) the new Éadach collection will be launching in Brown Thomas on Tuesday. There have been sneak peeks- my Children of Lir dress for the Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Years Awards, and sketches in our Drawn to…

Summer Daze

So apparently the best way to style an Éadach silk is with an azure pool and sunglasses! Who would have thought a brand hailing from the rugged north coast of Ireland would look so at home in hazy sunshine?

Irish Fashion Innovation Awards

I was delighted to be shortlisted in the Accessory Designer of the Year category in this year’s Irish Fashion Innovation Awards. Bringing the north coast to Galway bay!

A Winter Sunset

Hi, my name’s Sara and I’m a sunset spammer. Seriously. Show me a sunset and I’ll show you at least five new Instagram posts. Really though, can you blame me? We were heading to the beach last night, hopped out of the van and straight into a fairground in the sky. It was insane. And…

Salty Sea Dog

This little scribble is my homage to our sea-loving retriever, Blyton. This guy is never happier than when he’s galloping around the beach and swimming in the sea, with the possible exception of the joy when he hears the toaster pop. I honestly think he believes he is a seal. One day I will write…
