Consolata is an Irish treasure who doesn't get nearly enough praise for her work. Studying history and archaeology at college, the designer threw herself into training at the Abbey Theatre and immediately began working in film and television.

Consolata told The Telegraph that she enjoyed working on the Oscar nominated Florence Foster Jenkins with Hollywood legend Meryl Streep.

“I worked incredibly closely with Meryl every step of the way, we had a lot of discussion early on about how she would express her inner emotions in her clothing”
