When two Irish women of all ages with lengthy working experience in the style marketplace got jointly to style and design a wardrobe customized to the new realities of women’s lives – in which so-named “occasion” don is no longer so applicable – they known as their brand name Naya.
It suggests “a new beginning” and in accordance to Lynda Heather who set it up with fellow designer Helen Wheeler “it is a glossier informal variety as opposed to wise casual, more glamorous and what we would put on ourselves”.
Generously proportioned, peaceful with simple silhouettes in sizes from 8 up to 20, the selection is purposely geared to fit several styles and an age group formerly dominated by event wear. The palette is muted, but the colours allow for for mix and match permutations with tried out and analyzed sound shades like khaki, taupe, navy and black easy to uplift with vibrant colour or print.
“It’s a a lot more unstructured, layered glance that pretty couple of Irish designers provide at the instant and far more snug and less complicated to don than much more formal structured don that we ourselves really don’t specifically like to wear” describes Heather. Materials are functional, drape and vacation perfectly and do not crease. She is particularly happy of their trousers which have develop into their best sellers. All dresses have pockets.
For spring and summertime, a simple black costume will get excess voltage with a mesh hem and can be worn with sheer stockings or leggings. For people who are tall and self-assured, a bold polka dot summer season coat around a cocoon formed dress would surely switch heads. Striped knits over cuffed trousers make easygoing summer separates. Block colour dresses can do miracles for specific styles when asymmetrically reduce. Everything is created in Poland and other European nations.
Just one of three collections generated by Chase Fashions whose owners, including Heather, Helen Lynch, Colm and Mark O’Rourke, have several years of experience in the Irish trend industry, Naya started with a capsule of 80 items for the Irish marketplace. That has now grown to a 200-piece selection that sells internationally to Canada, Switzerland and the British isles.
“Our buyers are all online and our revenue figures have increased in the course of lockdown – maybe simply because it is a lot more informal and much more geared to recent lifestyles. You have to be commercial”, claims Heather.
Manner is in her blood. Daughter of Michael Heather, a veteran of the Irish style business, she examined vogue design and style soon after faculty at the London School of Manner and arrived again straight into the enterprise where by she has been at any time considering the fact that.
“We had been utilized to doing celebration and marriage put on, but this is a new look for us and some thing that we both delight in – it can be tricky to get a winner, but Irish buyers are definitely supporting the model.”
