During November, too, we spoke to the founders of 31 Chapel Lane about their stunning new contemporary clothing range and featured their latest dreamy fashion shoot. Founders Joi and Damien Hannigan told us about their design philosophy and about how sustainability is intrinsic to what they do as designers and makers using local fabrics, sustainably sourced, to create clothing that is manufactured in-house with absolute consideration for ethical production.

Jennifer Slattery has just launched a new range of embroidered shirts and a range of scarves in collaboration with McNutt of Donegal - we caught up with Jennifer during November to ask her about branching into designing clothing and accessories using Irish linen and wool - materials close to the heart of her brand’s ethos.
