"To this day people comment on its design and the quality of the suede. This morning I wore the coat as I cleared snow from my car before driving to work, shaking down the coat before entering a very smart business meeting only to receive a compliment from an Italian executive about my Róisín Gartland design," says Carmel.
"Over those 26 years I have invested in three other garments. What is it that makes Róisín unique? Like their creator, each piece is honest, understated, always contemporary and yet a timeless classic. Róisín's garments are not precious, in fact they improve with use and wear, building character as they go. Róisín cuts and creates with her client in mind as she truly values and respects that they have chosen her designs to wear. For me, Róisín's work is art created with love, passion and attention to every last detail. I know this because I feel it every time I wear a piece of her work."
