Niamh O’Rourke – Hat maker

My little journey in the creative lab of Dublin based hat maker Niamh O’Rourke.

Niamh has been featured in magazines such as Xpose’ in Ireland and is well known for her bridal hats, which she accompanies with hair style of her choice. Her work starts with the idea for the creation of a new shape, the choice of materials and fabrics which she does extremely carefully and sometimes requires her to travel in order to provide herself with the best silks and laces and finally all the work around the proper creation of the piece.

She has been working on hat making for the races in UK and Ireland and she also collaborates with Irish designers such as Louise Rawlins in order to combine their creations and put together a complete look. She is now showcased and sold in Louise Rawlins’  boutique Irish Couture in the heart of Dublin city.
