About the Artist
"Be Yourself; Everyone else is already taken" Oscar Wilde
Hi, My name is Regina Tierney
I'm the Designer of Celtic Fusion, Award Winning handcrafted, folklore clothing.
My creations began from my own desire to wear clothing which reflect the landscape and culture of where I'm from, Co. Clare in the west of Ireland.
I first began making celtic designed clothing for myself in 2007 having apprenticed in dress making. In 2014 having won the Clare Region Best Young Entrepreneur Award, I established Celtic Fusion Design making my designs available to other rooted, earthy folk to wear and enjoy.
I Love the process of my work, Finding a new textile, trimming, Drawing a new Design, creating samples and finalising a new piece. I also take much joy in styling these pieces creating entire outfits and looks and even finding people to style them on. My work is my Pleasure.
My deep love for nature, led me to design clothing for celtic weddings and rituals.
My designs are a reflection of folklore with a modern twist. The creations are handmade, using wools, hand woven cotton, lace and linens.
The work is often embellished with embroidery, brass and carved wooden details.
The original Celtic Artwork which is embroidered on our clothing and blanket designs, Is a collaboration with Raymond Tierney, an amazing Graphic Artist.
