Curated by the group, the event showcased a selection of up and coming Irish designer collections.

QBU is a new and exciting customisable handbag collection by designer and tutor Nicole Jackson. These Italian leather handbags with mix and match straps have six different shapes to choose from and a whopping nine straps in multiple colours. Choose your shape, choose your strap and off you go. The perfect cross bag to jazz up Spring/Summer looks.

Fine Artist Miss-ash-tray works her funky screen prints on to totes. ‘Clouds’, ‘Classic Legs’ and ‘Bits’ are all playful illustrations that the Dublin based artist prints on these fun bags. Screen print is her main medium, but she also makes work in many different ranges including sculpture, digital illustrations, drawing, painting and photography.
