Ciara Monahan

CIARA MONAHAN is a London-based womenswear designer with a hefty addiction to colour and all things kitsch.

With a background in screen and digital printing, embellishment, pattern cutting and laser cutting Ciara's handmade designs are heavily influenced by pattern and quirky stories.

Unique laser cut 3D perspex jewellery has been the focal point of her most recent collection following a quirky tropical theme of flamingos, pineapples and florals. This collection was inspired by the story of a garden Gnome, aspiring to escape the dreariness of reality to travel the world and collect kitsch souvenirs along the way. These pieces portray his final stop in tropical paradise.

Ciara has recently showcased her collection on the catwalk at Berlin Alternative Fashion Week in March 2015 and has had her headpieces and accessories sold at Secret Garden Party and Bestival 2014 which have proved a festival favourite.
