Jennifer Rothwell’s collection is a beautifully positive commemoration of the 1916 Rising, Irish history and free expression.

Evoking a spirit of iconic designs and fresh thinking, Jennifer has produced a truly innovative collection consisting of luxurious fabrics paired with high quality finishing. This collection is for women who want something different, unique and elegant.

Her inspiration for this exhilarating compilation came from the positive aspects of this controversial era – such as the architecture of the GPO and the famous Hibernia Statue. These features are celebrated through sensational tones of purples and blues. These investment pieces are timeless and will look great year after year.

Through her designs Jennifer wants to reignite the Celtic Revival (also known as the Celtic Twilight) of the 19th and 20th centuries in the 21st century. Her work and her designs celebrate Irish artists, folklore, legends and traditions through fashion in a modern and contemporary way.

In 2016 The National Gallery of Ireland purchased 3 of Jennifer's designs (Madeline silk shirt dress, Kells and GPO 1916 silk scarf) for the National Collection of Contemporary Applied Art.

In choosing pieces from Jennifer Rothwell’s collections Alex Ward, Curator of Dress and Textiles, National Museum of Ireland: Decorative Arts and History said "I felt that these particular designs would beautifully complement and enhance the existing collections at the National Museum of Ireland in that they represent a very contemporary interpretation of Irish events and movements from a century ago. Jennifer’s Kells print is a modern reimagining of ancient motifs that were popular during the Celtic Revival and her reworking of Harry Clarke designs recalls the best of the Irish Arts and Crafts movement. By incorporating the GPO into a new print Rothwell commemorates the 1916 Rising in a very unique way. Produced using up-to-the minute digital print technology these vibrant pieces evoke our past and at the same time represent contemporary Irish design."
