One year ago, at this time, Louise Rawlins didn’t even have her first collection made, but after the first photo shoot she did in October 2012 with Muhammad Sami everything has changed. And now here she is: owner of a shop in Powers Court, in the heart of Dublin city, inside of which she doesn’t only showcase and sell her own collection, but also gives to other designers the possibility to have a space where to showcase their own pieces of design.
Irish Couture, this is the name of the shop, is not only a place where to find beautiful pieces of fashion design, beautifully refined and made with the nicest materials such as the cachemire she has used for the sweaters of her A/W 2013 collection, but also aims to be a melting pot for Irish fashion designers and upcoming talents. Doing so, Louise encourages the locals to put out their talent and show it to the world and that’s probably why she is having so much success.
People always think that the fashion world is made of sharks, which is actually true, but if someone acts in a generous and communitarian way everybody appreciates that. All the effort Louise has made in the past year to get on track with her business and also give something more that that to the fashion world is definitely being repaid.
