Meet the Maker

Meet & Maker: 05, ED

I have been so so lucky to have the wildly talented Erin Donohoe with her dreamy indepantant textile label ED in the &hobbs gallery.

Erin's work is thoughtful, her colour work is stunning and the way in which she styles the scarves adds an element of strength for us ladies.  A range of wearable art for the inner wonderer. 

Erin is the first artist in the gallery and I am so lucky that I have had such an inspiring lady by my side in the new store. With her new range launching on Thursday 11th August in the gallery I thought it only right that we find out a little more about Erin and her brand. 

So here are her five facts and a little glimpse of her life as creative, designer, and mother.

“My scarves are designed to bring any outfit to life. A burst of colour to give instant sophistication and that ‘face’ (as I like to call it) of inner confidence when you feel great about your look. I particularly enjoy wearing the scarves as a head turban - it makes me feel like a strong woman, ready to take on anything - a Grace Jones kind of vibe”.

The stunning Erin and her 5 facts:

Thank you so much to Erin for joining us for the meet the maker and for being such an inspirational woman.

When Erin fist showed me her collection I was blown away, the colour was one thing I fell for immediately but the other was that it took me back about ten years. To a girl who I miss dearly, a girl that wore items that made her feel independent and unique. A feeling she only gained with scarves around her waist and bangles jangling around both arms. That girl is of course me, and after a horrid time at collage, and a huge loss of confidence for many reasons that girl quickly disappeared. I know that that person is still there and this collection has most definitely brought her back in one shape or form. When someones work brings part of your life alive, you should grab it with both hands and embrace its joy fully. So thank you Erin for our stunning work and for reminding me of that girl! 

Check this lady out for certain!
