About Maire Forkin

Fashion Designer, Ireland

I am a Dress Designer and ladies tailor who specialises in designing chic, contemporary investment clothing. As both Ladies Fashion Designer and tailor my forte is designing and creating the most flattering shapes for the figure. My clients want an outfit to fit in contemporary , classic, chic styles.  I offer a made to measure service to creating styles for my client’s individual style and fit.

I have watched so many customers be transformed. They like how they look when they discover clothes that make them feel attractive and enhance their silhouette. Every women want this positive experience from clothes.

Ladies looking for an outfit for a special occasion; a wedding, a black-tie event, a Mother of the Bride or Groom outfit, a day at the races or an evening dress want to have an outfit that are confident wearing. Furthermore, they want a dress they can wear again on other occasions. How many times have we spent money on dress we wear only once and never wear again?
