Brides rooted in nature

The Entire collection has been created with the intention of creating dresses which cater to a woman who is deeply rooted in nature, being true to herself and appreciates the perfection of nature.

Many of the dresses have been designed as simple lace styles which can be further ellaborated with the celtic knotwork belts which i have designed. The knotwork belt feature is a celtic ceremonial piece which is very feminine and elegant and perfect for a nature based/handfasting ceremony.

Some of the designs have a strong folklore look, with bell sleeves and the use of Jute fibres in the trimmings create a very rustic and earthy feel which mirrors the nature of pagan and celtic handfasting ceremonies.

Fairytale Feel

Some of the designs have a fairytale look.  The landscape in the west of ireland where these designs were created is a fairytale landscape i wanted to express this in the weding designs, in a modern but ancient way.

Ancient roots in celtic wedding dress design

regina tierney

I am very excited about the upcoming release of 2017 wedding dress collection

Having launched Celtic Fusion in 2015 with my original designs, the feedback I received from many people was that they could see me designing for alternative and Celtic Weddings.

It seemed right for me to create for Celtic hand fasting Ceremonies and outdoor nature based ceremony,  I believe in the ethics and openness of the beliefs of the ancient hand fasting practice, and given that many of my friends are choosing to celebrate there love in this way i was excited by the challenge of creating for such special events.

 Ancient Celtic hand-fasting is the traditional wedding of the ancient Celts. This tradition Dates back before 7000 B.C.  The ceremonies would often happen around Celtic feasts and festivals such as Lunasa. The ceremony involves the binding of the couple’s hands using a ribbon or Braided cord. One of the most fantastic things I like about this practice is that once married the couple have a period of one year engagement after this one year the couple can then choose to solidify the marriage through another ceremony or Dissolve the relationship and be free to find another partner.

Many women had said to me that it was difficult to find a wedding dress that was natural and wasn’t going to make them look like a Fancy Desert. Having looked at was available I had to almost everything offered seemed very synthetic and didn't match what i thought matched a nature based or ancient celtic ceremony deserved.

 My own spiritual beliefs are influenced by Neo-Druidism this belief promotes harmony and worship of nature.  So this is a base for many of my concepts and art and i approached my dress design with this same spirit.

My Celtic wedding dress designs have been created as a expression of nature and this is something I felt is very definitive but soft and gentle. I wanted the woman wearing it to feel like a Divine goddess and to feel part of that expression of nature which in (Neo-Druidism belief) we are all a part of.

I have expanded on the theme of my 2016 collection but in evolved and exciting cuts and also incorporating Linen fabric and cotton jute fabric. The new collection will be launched by june 8th

Some of the re-accruing  themes in the collection

·         is the use of 100% natural raw cotton lace, I chose this textile because of it’s natural, not bleached or dyed meaning less processed this gives it a very close to nature feeling. The floral pattern running through it is also very feminine and flattering.

·         I have used raw Jute fibre in many of the designs, jute is a course plant fibre of created using nettle, hemp or the outer part of a fibres plant. The very raw and unprocessed nature of the trimmings and fabric used from this plant gives a rustic feel to the style and further emphasises the nature origin of the design.

·         I have created a variety of sleeved wedding dresses in the collection, this style is fitting with the outdoor nature of the ceremony and the fact that in Ireland at least it’s not the warmest at the best of times this style I felt was perfect for  outdoor hand fasting ceremony

Celtic Creative Revolution

regina tierney

I was never in to creating or Dreaming in a mediocre way, my thirst for adventure and art has never let me take the road well-travelled. 

I’m very excited by the work vie brought in to fruition these past few months, creations which vie had on paper for over a year no will finally be released in the next few weeks after much work, searching and vision.

These new creations are mostly inspired by traditional Irish life, Celtic culture, and Hipster culture and steampunk design.  In this new collection I have delved in to designing with brass and the finished effect is mind blowing. I’ve mixed high quality tweed designs with brass accessories to create clothing which is a wearable art piece.

I have also collaborated with Co. Clare born artist Raymond Tierney to create visionary art which I have used on my new Cape and Shawl Designs. My inspiration for this was to create a piece which reflected the animal spirit of the west of Ireland.  I have always been drawn to the mystery and power of the stag and for me it symbolises the Wild and untameable nature of the west. I wanted to mix the symbol of the Oak and acorn with this image as the oak is a tree of Knowledge.  In the bottom of this image is a Celtic Trinity Symbol bringing in the element of body mind and spirit.

My favourite new creation is the range of Celtic Capes, for this I sourced beautiful cream wool and it features a side button up and front pocket. This piece is made as a one size fits all and is a super easy to wear free spirited piece.

I’m looking forward to the upcoming release of these new creations as well as some fun photo-shoots to come. Celtic Fusion will also be going even more international with being introduced to stores in America, Milan and Amsterdam in the next month and being released in to many new stores across the country.

Exciting Times ahead!
