Brand Reseach – Orla Kiely

Orla Kiely is an Irish fashion designer based in London. She began her career designing hats, and moved on to design work on handbags and a variety of other items including kitchenware and womens clothing.

Although she is famous for designing a variety of things I decided to further into her women clothing as part of my brand research. I love her retro, 70’s style look she has within her designs and this trend is definitely very current at the moment.

I have recently had a look at the autumn/winter collection and I really like some of the retro skirts and dresses. The retro designs and very authentic.
