Marion Cuddy’s pop-up shop is located on the second floor in the Powerscourt Shopping Centre. The Shop stocks a fabulous selection of statement coats, day and evening dresses and even a selection of wedding dresses. To make it a one-stop shop, there is also a great variety of beautiful accessories to suit any budget. Aine McDonnell, Tyrrell&Brennan, Lisa Shawgi, Gertrude Sampson, Caroline Mitchel, Deborah Veale are just a few of the designers stocked in-store with Marion Murphy Cooney being the latest edition to this eclectic designer mix.
Knitwear is the shop’s strong point and it’s all Irish. The vibrant colours of Heather Finn’s knits always attract attention and the sweater dresses of Lisa Shawgi, a designer steadily developing a distinctive, individual look, are stylish and classy. Gertrude Sampson’s extraordinary way with wool, a skill that can make a chunky cabled cardigan look like luxurious fur or a fine alpaca coat look like thistledown, demonstrates her idiosyncratic approach. Add to that the more elaborate creations of Caroline Mitchell and newcomer Marion Moore, and Cuddy gets full marks for a good selection.
