I have always believed that Ireland has some killer fashion designers. I love JW Anderson and his mens range, as well as Simone Rocha, who is really making a name for herself, especially with the recent news of her collaboration with J Brand denim. Another name that recently popped up was Danielle Romeril who hails from Dublin and studied fashion design in Limerick School of Art and Design graduating in 2007. Having broadened her experience by working with Sharon Wauchob and Sinha-Stanic, in 2007 Danielle made the move to London to work as a designer at Amanda Wakely before continuing her education with a Masters Degree from the Royal College of Art, London. Danielle won three awards during her studies at the Royal College of Art, The Swarovski & Sophie Hallette Award, The I.F.F. Award (International Flavours and Fragerences) and the Fiskars Award. From her graduate show at the RCA, Danielle was selected to work at Alberta Ferretti's studio in Italy and eventually launched her label in September 2012 with a collection exhibited a Somerset House during London Fashion Week. Now selling in the UK, US, Spain, Japan, China, Taiwan, Kuwait and the UAE, amongst others, I look forward to seeing this name travel across the globe to where I currently live, Australia. For Spring Summer 2014, Romeril’s passions for textiles and pattern-cutting can be seen throughout the collection and she takes inspiration from the everyday with her latest inspiration being bubble wrap. This, was the result of mountains of bubble wrap building up in her studio and Romeril worked with her Italian fabric mills to see if they could create something similar in which to develop the current collection. Its innovative ideas like this that set us Irish apart and its ideas like this that creative works of art, like the collection below.
