Customer Made Mother of the Bride Dresses 

Weddings are a big occasion in Ireland and ladies who intend to be Mother's of the Bride or Mother's of the for the occasion. I make dresses, evening gowns, tops and skirts, and coats in colours ranging from overall shades of fushia, deep blue, french navy, orchid yellow and turquoise to paler shades of ivory, ice blue, pistachio green and ice pink.  
Using best quality Italian, French and English mills my base cloths vary in weights of wool, silk and silk prints sit along-side textured lurex fabrics in the same pallet to provide rich, yet subtle contracts. 
I use personalized prints on neck lines, side frills, bell sleeves and shell tops provide the right pop of colour and include hand stitched crystal jewels which ad to the glamour. My dresses can be worn with matching capes and snugs which can give the outfit another look, or also can be matched with a coat.  For a black-tie wedding many of my clients like to wear a full length dress.   
I meet with my clients by appointment in the comfort of my studio in Fitzwilliam Square. Maire Forkin, Dublin based Fashion Designer

Investment Clothing

 

I believe it is true that a lady who presents the best version of herself to the world will exude confidence! And my clients want this, the perfect shape, style and colour, an outfit that they are able to wear on many occasions. An investment Piece!. I love seeing a lady being transformed when I make her an outfit which bests flatters her silhouette and individual style, a result unlikely to be achieved in wearing standard sizing.

Streamlining the body with sculpted well-constructed, understated garments lending itself to a proper fit and balance, is the key! This, coupled with quality fabrics, attention to detail and the use of precious stones and exquisite trimmings provides the dignity of beautiful chic and elegant clothing.

I provide a unique personal shopping experience in a relaxed elegant environment, meeting with my clients by appointment at my studio. We discuss most appropriate and flattering styles, and advise them on fabric and colour. The can view my collection and there is a wide range of fabrics and colours to choose from.

My customers include ladies from both Ireland and the UK attending royal events, celebrity occasions, races, weddings and black-tie events and many other special occasions!.... Maire

Guests at Weddings!

 Summer time is a very busy time of the year for Weddings, with guest at weddings looking for that special outfit for the special occasion. Some of us love going to a number of shops to try on outfits but people grow tired of shopping if there are not finding what it is they are looking for.

And this is where I can assist, with outfits tailored to fit each client in the fabric and colour of their choice. Many ladies have a very good idea of what suit them. Others however are often surprised that the dress I make for them bears little relation to the dress they had in their mind! I work with each client to create them a classic, chic outfit, with a twist. Maire

Making any size or shape look good.

"This is what I believe is forte. For many years I have made outfits for women of all sizes and during all stages in their lives. It is important to flatter a client's silhouette and enhance their strong points.

I know that I can give each of my clients something edgy, feminine and still understated. My customers includes Mothers of the bride, Mothers of the Groom in both Ireland and in the UK, Ladies going to The Royal Ascot, Saudi royals, and ladies who just want something extra special for an event or a celebration, perhaps a black-tie event or other big occasion.

My clothes are chic, contemporary and well tailored. They range from a chic two piece outfit, a flattering dresses or a full- length gowns and coats. Ladies want something extra special for an event or a celebration. Women are looking for outfits they can wear again. For an Irish client being presented to Queen Elizabeth this July, I am currently making a sweeping black coat and an evening dress with hand-stitched jewelry to give a taste of opulence. Tastefully designed in clean cut lines and quality fabric, I know that my client will look and feel wonderful". Maire
