Carol O’Connor creates bespoke headwear for occasions, weddings, ladies days and racing events.
Carol has been involved in Art & Design for over 15 years and is also an award-winning exhibiting artist with work in the collections of the OPW, Axa Insurance, Meath Co. Council, Beaulieu House and the Imago Mundi Bennetton Collection.
2019 will see her launch her first spring summer collection ‘Postcards’ which incorporates painting and printing techniques with traditional millinery. This collection will be debuted at Showcase 2019 in the RDS Dublin.
Carol O’Connor studied fine art in the National College of Art and Design Dublin before embarking on a career in Millinery in 2016. She studied traditional millinery techniques in Grafton Academy of Fashion, Dublin before setting up her own studio in Co. Meath.
Carol likes to collaborate with her clients to ensure they receive exactly the right headpiece to complement their outfit. You can book an appointment with her for a first fitting and allow 3 to 4 weeks turn around on a bespoke item. Alternatively you can choose from her collection and either hire or buy off the shelf.
Each piece is exquisitely handcrafted with attention to detail and finished using both traditional and contemporary materials.
You can make an appointment for a first fitting or consultation by calling the studio or direct messaging.
