Boundary Pushing Form from Rebecca Marsden

Every week we search the country for our favourite Designers, and bring an innovative product made by them, to you on

Womenswear label by Irish designer Rebecca Marsden launched in 2012. Focus on manipulated fabrics and boundary pushing form underpins her design approach, exploring the extent to which a concept can be realised and made tangible.
Drawing inspiration from her surrounds, wherever they may be, informs Rebecca’s work alongside the constant search for new ways to manipulate materials through innovative means and re-interpretation of traditional techniques for textile and garment design.

Rebecca is a former student of the ‘Limerick School of Art and Design’ where she achieved a First Class BA Honors in Fashion Design. During her college years and in the year following graduation she worked internationally with designers in London, Paris and New Delhi.

‘My initial plan was to set up a studio in Dublin but being a Sligo girl at heart I opted to move back to the West after a year in Dublin and set up my studio here. I love it here, the sea, the mountains, and the lake outside my front door! I feel so creatively charged here, in a way that any city has yet to deliver on. I hope to be able to continue to grow the business from here as many others do, choosing to set up and develop their businesses within their local areas’.

This recent shoot by photographer David Murphy details looks for current and past seasons. This story was shot in Harrington St, Dublin. This street boasts some of the earliest examples of Georgian architecture in the city. The aged interior with peeling paint and cold, soft light was a beautiful location and a great backdrop for the looks, melding contemporary design with an old world feel.
