What are your fondest memories of Christmas past? Undoubtedly it must have been the mountain of presents that were parcelled beneath the tree each December 24. For me, the festivities could not truly begin until I was resplendent in my favourite gingham dress complete with scalloped collar, all of which was complimented perfectly with my favourite red velvet coat. Sometimes the magic is in the clothes and Irish designer Karen Kirby of Kirbee Designs knows this best. She says: “Everyone remembers that special dress from a childhood birthday, the colour of it, the way it felt. “Mine are all 100pc cotton, they are all machine washable. They are designed to be worn, to be passed on and enjoyed. They are designed to make memories.” The mother-of-three from Rush, Co Dublin, was determined to build a collection that would bridge the gap between high street and designer, affording every little girl who dreams of playing dress-up a chance to wear her beautifully-detailed collection.
