Jennifer Rothwell is one of 15 designers involved in an exciting new Irish Designer Collective store, Project 51 on South William St Dublin 2 which opened this week.
Rothwell’s AW 11 collection (an amazing array of jersey dresses & jumpsuits and Trevi fountain print silk dresses & coats) will be available exclusively at this location where she’ll also be running courses for starting your own Fashion Label and Manufacturing Courses this September.
Project 51 – The Irish Design Collective, is a high end NYC Soho style luxury boutique filled with the best of Irish fashion, jewellery, millinery, accessories and furniture. It offers the ultimate shopping experience in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Customers can choose from an amazing selection of luxury goods, from engagement rings to bridal wear, jewellery, evening wear, tailoring, millinery and luxury leather bags.
Project 51 is headed up by Eoin McDonnell owner of Precious, diamond and wedding rings specialist who tells us that ‘ For every €100 spent in a multinational store only €14 goes back into the local economy versus €45 through an Irish owned shop, thus by customers buying from Project 51 there is more money going back into the Irish economy’ ”.
