#wearingirish began as a month of March focus on Irish Design and Offaly native and New York resident Margaret Molloy is behind this hashtag venture. It was launched on Twitter and Instagram and offline media soon took notice and the campaign grew from strength to strength. This year (2018) will see another great leap for #wearingirish when 8 lucky designers will get to showcase their work in a real live event in New York City.
Wild by Water was lucky enough to feature in #wearingirish early adventures when our velvet Botanical clutch hit NYC’s Highline and our “Gull” folded clutch made it to Irish mountains (both Killarney and the Slieve Blooms) as well as exotic Costa Rican beaches.
Stars all around.
