This weeks guest on the show is Katie O’Riordan. Katie is the brainchild behind contemporary womenswear brand Theo + George. The brand fuses American and European influences to provide fashion lovers with sustainable, affordable, luxury clothing. Theo+George creates pieces that endure the test of time, including versatile pieces that can be worn every day and will remain fashionable for years to come. The label is made exclusively in Ireland and utilises the expertise of local manufacturers in ensuring the quality and integrity of the collection.
Katie is no stranger to the world of fashion having designed and developed products sold worldwide for multinational organisations for over twelve years throughout the US, Asia and Europe. She is a member of the Council of Irish Fashion Designers and her work with Theo + George was shortlisted for an IDI Design Award in 2015. You can view her most recent work on the Theo + George website theoandgeorge.com.
Katie and I chat about her love of fashion, her journey from USA to Ireland, what she likes to wear, where she shops and what the future holds for her label.
