SHARON CUNNINGHAM

 

It all started…growing up in Ireland and being taught to sew by my mother.

I studied at…Fashion College in Ireland, winning the coveted International Smirnoff Fashion Award.

Then moved to London…to work with and learn from John Rocha, Ben De Lisi, Catherine Walker, Gieves and Hawkes.

I worked with high profile clients and designed costumes for films…I worked with a number of famous faces including Jemima Goldsmith, Katrine Skepper, Kate Winslett, Mel Gibson, Sir Richard Branson’s wife Joan Templeman, Plum Sykes and Patsey Kensit and Miranda Burley.

Met and married Alex…then launched my first bridal collection to rave reviews and accolades. Sold exclusively in Harrods.

Opened my own store in London's Mayfair…dressed celebrities including Emily Blunt, Cheryl Cole, Shazney Lewis, Melanie Blatt, Grainne Seoige, Martine McCutchine, Rachel Hunter, Anna Acton, Kim Tiddy and Delta Goodrum.

Pressed pause…whilst our children were young but continued to design for a selective group of clients and consult for fashion houses.

I get excited about…the arrival of a new roll of fabric; draping fabric and playing with new designs in the studio; the first fitting; weddings in general.

2014…new bridal collection and exclusive 24 dresses concept launches.

When I’m not designing dresses…you’ll find me entertaining, skiing or playing the piano.
