New York Times – Five Places to Shop in Dublin (MoMuse and MADE in Powerscourt)
The New Yorks Times’ article on June 28 on 5 Places to Shop in Dublin, mentions not one but two stores in Powerscourt Townhouse. So exciting to see the Creative Quarter being recognised internationally as the go-to area for contemporary and modern Irish independent designers and retailers.
From the New York Times
One block west [of Grafton Street] lies a mix of independent boutiques, cafes and galleries in what is known as the Creative Quarter. Many shops on three parallel streets — Clarendon, William and Drury — feature local designers and artisans. While the district has been a retail area since the 19th century when the George’s Street Arcade, Ireland’s first (and still functioning) shopping center opened, new developments have helped create a concentrated destination for contemporary Irish design.
MADE – from the New York Times:
Opened in 2016, Made carries fashion-forward women’s clothes from Irish lines, such as cartoon-illustrated dresses by Electronic Sheep and Victorian ruffle collars by Natalie B. Coleman. One corner is devoted to the nature-inspired jewelry company Chupi.
MoMuse – from the New York Times
This inviting shop in Powerscourt Centre features jewelry by its owner, the designer Margaret O’Rourke, including pendant necklaces with nine-karat-gold discs and gold chain drop earrings. Also look for alpaca and silk scarves from Mucros Weavers, based in Killarney, and made-in-Dublin cashmere knits from Eilis Boyle.
