ANNE O’MAHONY DRESSMAKER

70h sewmacAnne is a Dublin based dressmaker and designer of bespoke clothing for women. She has a wealth of experience in designing and making a range of made-to-measure occasion wear.

Anne’s passion for making and designing unique womenswear started back at the prestigious Grafton Academy where she studied Dress Design before moving on to the fashion capital of the world to further her study of Pattern Drafting in Milan.

Back home in Dublin, Anne has since worked with a number of Ireland’s leading designers including Ib Jorgensen and Jen Kelly. To add to her portfolio of experience she has also developed a keen interest in the creation of Costume and Vintage  garments through working in the costume department of The Abbey Theatre.

The next step in Anne’s career as a Dublin dressmaker and designer started when she opened her own studio in Grand Canal Quay. From there Anne now specialises in creating beautiful bespoke clothing for women in a variety of styles including simple skirts, evening dresses, wedding gowns, Mother of the Bride outfits, and tailored suits.

Each and every garment that Anne creates is designed around the unique characteristics of every individual and exploring those nuances is one of most enjoyable parts of Anne’s working day.

If you would like to find out more about having something beautiful created especially for you then please feel free to get in touch.

DESIGN PROCESS

 

70 x 34 scissorsThe first step in the Design Process is a one-to-one consultation with Anne in her Dublin studio.

This first stage is a creative collaboration, where after measurements have been taken, you’ll have the chance to explore a wide variety of fabric samples and discuss any unique design elements that you like to see in your finished garment.

If you’re not sure exactly what it is that you would like, Anne will offer up plenty of suggestions and happily browse with you through her extensive collection of fashion books until something sparks your fancy. As a dressmaker in Dublin,  Anne has plenty of clients who  come with their own ideas garnered from photographs, favourite wardrobe pieces, or  images from catwalk collections. 

Once you are happy with the design, and you have chosen some fabrics you love, Anne will then order some swatches so you can get a clear picture of what your finished garment will look and feel like.

The next step involves making an appointment to return to the studio for a fitting of the toile which is made up in calico or lining material. It is at this point that the design and fit of your garment are refined to ensure your garment will hang perfectly on your figure. Then, you’ll finalise your fabric choices.

Depending on the complexity of your garment, there will be a further two to five fittings to allow your dressmaker to make detailed refinements before your finished garment is finally ready to wear.

WOMEN’S BESPOKE DESIGN

 

70h threadAs a dressmaker and designer, Anne has created a wide range of bespoke womenswear to produce unique wardrobes that cover every occasion including daywear, workwear, evening wear, and casual garments.

Designing unique wardrobe pieces means Anne creates beautiful garments that complement the individual shape and form of each and every client. Because every garment is individually tailored to the individual, Anne’s clients have often enjoyed bringing a personal touch to their wardrobes whether that is through the choice of unique fabrics or by adding special embellishments or nuances to patterns.

Wearing bespoke garments give you the confidence to know that you are dressed in a level of craftsmanship and quality that not only flatters beyond anything readymade ever could, but also reflects your own unique style and flair too.
