Dress by Golden Stitch

Ginan Abbas, originally from Iraq, has lived in Ireland for 14 years. Her designs are inspired by nature and beautiful fabrics. Ginan wants women to feel beautiful, because she feels that, ‘There is so much pressure on women to conform to the perfect body shape’. She wants them to celebrate their body shape by designing pieces that fits them rather than the other way around. ‘I create unique and unusual pieces that will stand out from the norm but which fit the wearer perfectly.’
