Honor Fitzsimons, a young Irish knitwear designer and a graduate of Central Saint Martins, has been working with such brands as Louise Goldin (London), Diane Von Furstenburg (New York), Lucy & Bart (Amsterdam), Qasimi Homme London, and Peachoo + Krejberg (Paris) before starting her own knitwear brand in 2012.
Honor learned to knit from her grandmother who was constantly working on traditional aran sweaters. The designer is definitely influenced by the traditional knitwear, but likes to use innovative techniques, “inventive construction and conceptual use of color”.
All brand’s collection are produced in Ireland and all the yarns are sourced in European Union. Honor is working hard juggling the roles of a head designer, dealing with finances, PR, online marketing and employees.
