Galway native Niall Tyrrell is a graduate of the National College of Art and Design. He is a couture designer based in Dublin and offers a ready to wear and made-to-order, bespoke-couture service with his collections every season. Growing up in the countryside of East Galway has and an huge influence on his work and his love of country pursuits and the rural countryside has been a constant source of inspiration.
After a sixteen-year collaboration under Tyrrell & Brennan, Niall has run the label under his own name since 2013. His signature collections are evocative and feminine with a timeless yet contemporary elegance. He has a reputation for creating exquisitely tailored and crafted garments with an international appeal. Using luxurious fabrics and clean line silhouettes combined with his passion for texture and colour, his collections display his attention to detail and skill in fitting the female form.
Having trained in the couture houses of London and Paris, his experience as a skilled draughtsman, tailor and designer has culminated in him being commissioned to design for several Oscar, Golden Globes and Grammy nominees, where his work has graced the red carpet. His collaborative work has also been worn by two female Presidents, actresses, the present First Lady of Ireland, musicians, Film and TV personalities.
According to Niall though, the real testament to the success of his work is the loyal clientele who support him to this day. Working on an appointment only basis from the showroom and studio, each client is given the full individual attention in a stress-free environment.
He maintains that a bespoke couture garment is designed to fit and flatter the figure perfectly, whilst often solving a lot of women’s shopping dilemmas. A result that is rarely achieved with garments bought off-the-peg.
