Orla Kiely

Orla Kiely

Signature Stem Print

Here's a lovely short film of the Winter collection from Orla Kiely, Ireland's finest and the Queen of Pattern and Print. Something cheerful for a January day. Inspired by her 70's childhood in suburban Dublin, Kiely trained at Art School in Dublin, worked in industry in New York, London and Dusseldorf before returning to complete post graduate studies at the Royal College of Art in London.

Orla Kiely set up her own business initially focusing on bags and hats and has now become iconic in the world of export with a wide collection featuring dresses, skirts, coats and accessories. The bold 'stem' print is recognisable as her signature motif and is re-invented each season.
