About Jennifer

Born in New York, and raised in Dublin, Irish designer Jennifer Rothwell graduated with honours from NCAD. In 1995, she emigrated fulltime to New York, where she acquired extensive NYC fashion experience. Jennifer Rothwell is highly experienced in the fashion field with over 20 years' fashion design/production experience. Jennifer Rothwell knows the A to Z of the fashion industry as she gained vast experience as the director of Design and Production for many high profile NY companies. She has worked with Norma Kamali, Katayone Adeli, Calvin Klein, Language and Yigal Azrouel and worked at director level in all companies mentioned. In August 2006, Jennifer decided to launch her own highly successful label, Jennifer Rothwell, in Dublin Ireland.

Jennifer prides herself that her garments are produced locally at her studio in Artane, Dublin. As the garments are manufactured in close radius to the studio the carbon footprint of the garments is greatly reduced. 

Jennifer Rothwell's collections pair innovative design with high quality finishing. She specializes in digital print on luxurious fabrics, mostly on silk, in clothing and accessorize. The point of difference in Jennifer’s work is her striking use of vibrant colour which is reflected in her stunning prints. 

 
 

 

TESTIMONIALS

Jennifer’ sense of design and passion for what she does comes across in her work. She is a very skilled fashion designer and I am proud to wear her beautiful pieces.
— Liselott Olofsson - Ceramics Artist, Co. Killkenny, Ireland
I am personally delighted by the beautiful digital prints Ms Rothwell designs as the basis for her collections, as it’s quite remarkable in this era to find a designer who is the visionary for both her textiles and her designs.
(…) When I walk through the streets of San Francisco in my J Rothwell frocks, someone will always stop to ask about the garment and remark on its unusual beauty.
— CC Hart - Writer, Secretary, IASAS, San Francisco, USA
 Liselott wore two Jennifer Rothwell's creations at the Oscar while accompanying her husband Tomm Moore: in 2015, she wore the Circular Stainglass Digital printed one shoulder gown, inspired by the vivid colours from the stain glass windows made by Irish Artist Harry Clarke, and in 2018, a Crane Print Maxi Skirt and an assorted fuchsia top, the print being inspired by Dublin’s Bloom Festival and Jennifer’s love of birds and Japanese influences.

I asked Jennifer if she could do a bespoke order, a silk coat-jacket in her hummingbird print. (…) When I received it in the mail, it was everything, and more, than I imagined. Truly a work of art.
— Connie Roberts - Poet and Creative Writing Professor, Hofstra University, New York, USA
I have several of her scarves which I wear regularly – not only as scarves but as belts and headpieces too. I am always guaranteed a complimentary remark on them or a question as to where I got them.
