Designers of practical everyday fashion products for women
Edie O'Hara Designs is a small innovative High Peak, Derbyshire based fashion house focused on creating pretty, everyday garments for practical multiway use. From a long term interest in yarn based neckline accessory design, which goes back to our roots in Dublin, Ireland, we have expanded gradually from our wide selection of chunky knit snoods to include sun dresses, kaftans, designer tops, sarong style wrap skirts & ponchos.
Like most designers, we just love sourcing beautiful soft luxury yarns and fabrics but our main focus is to create simple new garment types that serve real practical purposes.
Over the past couple of years, our local production, in the Derbyshire Peak District, has become more integrated with fabric and yarn manufacture and we have opened this on-line shop to make our designs available to a wider audience. We now have customers right across the UK, in parts of Europe, Australia and the US.
We produce for recognised colour profiles and in so doing hope to help broaden your fashion colour palette and textures.
Our most successful garment this Spring season is the Edie O'Hara multiway Manchester poncho. Not only is it wearable across the shoulders as a poncho, but because of its' button up structure it can also be worn in a variety of different ways as a wrap and even splits into two button up shawls that can be shared !
This follows on from our 2014 AW Poncho design, a colourful wool blend and fleece-lined garment, perfect for cooler times. We introduced a new version for 2015 which will offer more cover and sleeve shaping.
We maintain a stock of products that are not listed here, which sell at an expanding number of retail outlets.
