Lainey Keogh: Beautiful Knitwear from the Spinner of Dreams

Fantasy, Femininity, and Fire have been driving themes behind Lainey Keogh’s collection since it launched in London on the runway in 1997. After a fast life of high fashion, including collaborations with Dior and Galliano, Lainey changed course. In the early 2000s, she decided to focus on ethically sourced, natural fibers and dyes, and exclude synthetics and chemicals from her work. She also committed herself to preserving traditional Irish weaving and knitting techniques by insisting that her clothes be handmade by local individuals.

Today she is the undisputed queen of cashmere, a spinner of dreams, known both at home and abroad for pushing the boundaries of knit and fiber design creatively and technically and whose billowing cardigans, sexy and voluptuous goddess dresses, and color loaded sweaters have changed forever the image of Irish knitwear.
