Bernie Murphy, Irish textile artist/designer and educator work currently explores the creative functionality of traditional Irish tweeds. She develops new contemporary and innovative approaches to fashion design to identify interesting compositional arrangements in her Sculptural Donegal Tweed Collection.
Bernie's aim is to capture the natural environment that surrounds her - its unpredictable beauty and spirit - and reflect elements of the textiles and design skills that have been handed down across the generations in this unique region, my homeland of Donegal.
Each garment is an expression of luxury and style in contemporary Irish fashion and textile design.
Imagined, designed and handcrafted in Donegal, Ireland.
