Designer In Focus: Hats Off To Northern Irish Milliner Grainne Maher

Grainne Maher, a Northern Irish milliner and jewelry designer is best known for creating unique, and at times, avant-garde accessories.

Maher’s works were recently worn by pop-singer, Selena Gomez who wore two of the designer’s pieces from her Pluck & Devour jewelry line at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Designer In Focus: Hats Off To Northern Irish Milliner Grainne MaherGomez wore Maher’s glittered black pendant with a howling wolf laser-cut motif to introduce Lady Gaga’s performance, and later wore the designer’s long, gold chain necklace to accent a striking red jumpsuit by The Blonds.

“I am absolutely overwhelmed by the fact that Selena wore not just one but two of my necklaces,” said Maher to Meets Obsession magazine, “A platform like the MTV EMAs for my work is something that I thought I could only ever dream about. The…’Bark at the Moon’ pendant looked so cool against her tousled up-do and olive skin, and my Swarovksi and chain statement neck piece teamed with the backless red jumpsuit looked stunning. I couldn’t believe my eyes  when I saw it on screen!”

Maher will showcase her Spring/Summer collection at Solas Nua’s Paisean Faisean fashion show in Washington, D.C. in February 2012.

Her jewelry can be purchased on her website.
