Riona Treacy is a London based womenswear brand. The designer is from Belfast.
Riona always knew she wanted to be a fashion designer. She studied Fashion & Print degree, and completed an MA in Textiles, before moving to London to work with brands such as Alexander McQueen and Mary Katrantzou. And following this, she set up her self-titled label in 2012.
Brand Riona Treacy has a strong aesthetic with hand dyed prints and clean silhouettes, which flatter and celebrate the female form. “By playing with juxtaposition and asymmetry my passion is to create designs for confident women who can make a bold statement with their image without the need to seek attention”.
Most of Riona’s designs are hand dyed, which makes them completely unique due to the organic nature of the dye process, so the wearer knows that they really are wearing something totally bespoke. Therefore, she believes “joining IPSEITY was the perfect place to collaborate”. Each dress has been hand dyed in London using an ancient Japanese dye technique called shibori, and she focused on some of her favourite colour combinations for each dress.
