Hey I'm Aisling! ( you pronounce it 'Ash-Ling!' )
Thanks for stopping by, heres a little bit about me....
I am an Art~Led Fashion Designer.
I run a small one person business from my studio.
I design One~Of~A~Kind & Made~To~Order handmade Collections & Drops.
I also create bespoke custom Hand~Painted Pieces for special commissions
I studied at The National College of Art & Design in Dublin specialising in Printed Textiles and I have an MFA from The Edinburgh College of Art specialising in Mixed Media Textiles
In late 2017 I achieved a Creative Careers Award that granted me a Studio Space at Cockpit Arts in London.
It was from here that I set up my small independent label
My work explores themes of Identity, Personality & Self-Exploration
I try to address Social Issues such as Climate Change, Environment and Sustainable Fashion through my choice of fabrics and DIY aesthetic
I spent my youth surrounded by alternative music & culture - it was a big part of my life - and still is today, so that really feeds into how I style and develop silhouettes for my Collections.
I work with Vegan friendly fabrics & processes in my collections.
I use deadstock, upcycled and organic fabrics where ever possible.
I like to work on a made-to-order basis meaning there is no waste or overproduction
I hope to create a successful Fashion Label while producing ethical, vegan and sustainably certified work
