I still pinch myself every time I hear the words 'Jennifer Wrynne Boutique'. Anyone that knows me, knows that having my own Ladies Boutique was my ultimate childhood dream.
I began making hats over five years ago. From reading my blogs and looking at my Hat Gallery, you will see I am passionate about my work, perhaps even a tad obsessed!
Nobody in this world loves my hats more than I do. Every hat I block, every pearl I sew, every feather I place is done with passion. (Cringe alert but it's true!)
In October 2014, I decided to start a Fashion Blog out of love for styling my hats. The response has been amazing and now it's time for the next step.. To open my own boutique!
When I came across this unit in the Powerscourt Shopping Centre in Dublin City, I knew it was the perfect place - A beautiful location, full of character.
Over the last few weeks, I have been sourcing dresses and accessories from designers all over the world. As you know I LOVE to support Irish Designers and I am so proud to be stocking Niamh O'Neill's exquisite designs. Along with Niamh's collection, I have dresses from British, Spanish and American Designers. The main thing that they all have in common is that they are beautiful dresses, make from luxurious fabrics (silks, crepes & lace) and to a high quality standard.
The idea behind the boutique is to have a 'one stop shop' for Ladies attending a formal occasion such as a Wedding or a Day at the Races. Ladies will now be able to find the dress, hat and accessories all under the one roof!
I genuinely cannot thank you all enough for your kind messages of support. Again cringe alert, but from the bottom of my heart, I cannot tell you how much they mean to me. Thank you.
