Niall Tyrrell & Donald Brennan celebrated fifteen years in business this week with a spectacular showcase event at the Grand Canal Theatre. During that time they have developed a reputation as Ireland's leading couturiers with clients from all around Ireland and the UK. Many well know faces from the world of film, media, politics and music as well as discerning woman from across the country wear Tyrrell & Brennan Couture and were in attendance to raise a toast to the design duo.

At their private showrooms in Dublin and by appointment, Donald or Niall guide each client carefully through their couture collection. The process, where it is possible to try on samples, is to select the right silhouette from the range, then the fabric and finally to choose the colour. The subsequent fittings will ensure a perfect and individualised fit. A team of skilled artisans produce each piece with care in the Dublin studio.

Tyrrell & Brennan have had not one but seven of their dresses grace the red carpet at the Oscars and many more at other top events. In addition their ladies tailoring service has been appreciated by many senior business and political figures in Ireland. Former President McAleese wore Tyrrell & Brennan Couture when she greeted HM Queen Elizabeth at the Aras earlier this year.
