For seven years, Caroline Kilkenny ran a successful occasional and evening-wear design business in the United Arab Emirates, where many of her customers included members of The Royal family. Meanwhile in Ireland, her younger sister Nicola was also working as a designer, acquiring vital experience in the ladieswear arena. Both are graduates of The Grafton Academy and founded N&C Kilkenny in 2001.
Their collections represent a wonderful combination of relaxed elegance and understated luxury which make them very sought after by style-conscious women in Ireland and abroad.
N&C were recently awarded ‘Best Irish Designers’ by ‘’The Dubliner” and the sisters have shown at Pure London for the last 3 years, as well as making successful appearances at both London Fashion Week and Dublin Fashion Week, and more recently A-Fair in Antwerp. N&C Kilkenny is now known as Caroline Kilkenny.
