Focus On: LimROCK

In order to keep things fresh here we like to feature a designer every now and then who you may be unaware of. The latest installment of the VagaBond NYC blog will focus on another new Irish designer, Natalie B. Coleman. Originating from Carrickmacross, a town in Monaghan, Ireland, the designer set off on her design studies at the renowned Limerick School of Art and Design. She developed upon her knowledge at Central Saint Martin's, home to alumni such as Alexander McQueen. Coleman embarked upon establishing her own label last year following stints in New York and designing for a dance company. 

Coleman includes hand drawings and watercolors that are printed onto silks in a bid to establish a real sense of exclusivity to her pieces. Hailing inspirations as diverse as ostriches, unicorns and biker movies as inspiration, Coleman launched her SS 12 collection entitled, 'All the Jewellery I Never Got.'
