Christmas Delivery

Just over two weeks to go! Really? How did that happen? Éadach parcels are proving popular as Christmas gifts which is wonderful, I love the idea of these little pieces of wearable art sitting under the tree. However, there are still (ahem, mostly male) people getting in touch, undecided about which print to go for…

Small Business Saturday & the Age of the Freelancer

If you wander into a certain kind of (wifi-providing) coffee shop in the middle of the day chances are, as well as the bearded barista and complex coffee menu, a sea of Macs will greet you. You’re as likely to find a beard behind those as you are behind the counter tbh. Ladies and gentlemen,…

Christmas Gifts

Éadach oversized silk scarves are proving to be very popular Christmas presents, which I’m so excited about! I love the thought of people opening their gifts on Christmas morning and loving their scarves, wearing them out for a walk after lunch, for drinks on Boxing day, maybe fashioning them into a top or kimono wrap…

Press: The Style Guide Blog

I’ve been lucky enough to have had many lovely things written about my work over the past decade. One of my favourite quotes comes from the beautiful Sera at The Style Guide Blog who decided that Éadach was ‘a collection dreams are made of.’  In my dreamy head you don’t get higher praise that that!

Mermaids

A mermaid found a swimming lad, Picked him up for her own, Pressed her body to his body, Laughed; and plunging down Forgot in cruel happiness That even lovers drown.     WB Yeats  It’s possibly becoming quite apparent (especially for anyone that follows me on Twitter) that I have something of a Yeats obsession….

North Coast Sunsets

‘Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths…’ Sometimes they do appear embroidered, sometimes painterly, at times pretty and pastel like ice-cream and candyfloss, others vibrant, fierce and molten as if the sky is burning up. Always awesome and often stand-still-and-stare hypnotic. For me, they are one of my favourite things about living on the coast again…

Rathlin Island

Sometimes I think I’d love to live on an island far away from everything, surrounded by the sea, sending drawings back to mainland via carrier gull. Until such times, daytrips to Rathlin are awesome.      

Derry Fashion Fest 2015

A fashion show is like a swan, the beautiful serene models on the catwalk, while we (the dodgy legs) work frantically backstage. Of course when you’re part of a great team a show is a well-oiled machine, but it’s always gonna be a little nerve wracking making sure everything goes out on time and looking perfect. I had the total…

Bloody Foreland

After a couple of hectic months shooting the AW15 campaigns an unexpectedly sunny weekend in Donegal was total perfection. Bloody Foreland is such a remote and gorgeously wild part of Donegal, a beautiful place with a timeless, peaceful atmosphere that belies its local folklore.
