Celebrating Irish design in Paris

Published on : Monday, December 7, 2015

Celebrating IrishAs ID2015 – the year of Irish design – comes to a close, Tourism Ireland joined forces with the French luxury brand Hermès, at an event in Paris hosted by Irish Ambassador Geraldine Byrne Nason to celebrate our superb creativity and design.


Earlier this year, Ireland’s foremost abstract artist, Richard Gorman, became the first Irish artist invited to collaborate with Hermès on one of its famous carré scarves. The Tourism Ireland event at the Irish Embassy, celebrating his ‘Squeeze’ collection of Hermès scarves, was attended by leading French lifestyle and fashion journalists.


Tourism Ireland has been highlighting the year-long ID2015 programme, our creativity and design in its promotions around the globe throughout 2015 – celebrating design in just about every form, including events across the island, as well as activities and showcases at design weeks and fashion weeks.


Finola O’Mahony, Tourism Ireland’s Head of Europe, said: “In this year of Irish design, ID2015, we are delighted to celebrate Richard Gorman and his collaboration with Hermès. Throughout 2015, we have been showcasing Ireland and its dynamic design creativity, whetting people’s appetites to come and visit. We are inviting them to come and experience our vibrant, beautiful design and crafts and perhaps take home a bit of Irish creativity.”
