Design Centre was founded over 20 years ago. It became a forum for up and coming and established designers to showcase their clothing. The concept proved a great success and the shop became a must-visit in Dublin.

The Design Centre has undergone a few changes over the years to bring Dublin the finest fashion from Irish designers and international fashion houses.

Our current designers include La Petite Salope, Tricotine, Roisin Linanne, Synan O’Mahony and Tabitha Webb.

Accessories include – Philip Treacy, Erickson Beamon , Ben Rox, Lara Bohinc and House of Harlow 1960.
