Carolyn Donnelly, of Quinn and Donnelly fame, began her career in fashion at the Grafton Academy in Dublin. After graduation she set up her fashion label with her classmate Liz Quin. Over the years, the label became the biggest selling Irish designer label in Ireland and was stocked in Brown Thomas in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway, in Harrods in London, in House of Fraser branches across the UK, in Bloomingdales in New York and Macy’s in San Francisco, among many other selected outlets at home and abroad. Quin and Donnelly won the Late Late Show Designer of the Year Award twice.
After 30 successful years in fashion, Carolyn is now regarded as one of the country's most talented and experienced designers. She has recently been appointed Creative Director of Dunnes Stores, marking the beginning of a new design-led era for the group. She will be overseeing design across women's wear, leading a team of new designers in the branded labels within the store group. She is also launching her own collection of homewares which is exclusive to Dunnes Stores. This new range is called Carolyn Donnelly Eclectic. These pictures highlight just how gorgeous the range is.
