'Niamh Designs' is an online embroidery business specialising in the creation of exquisite bridal jackets. Every product we offer is meticulously handcrafted in Lurgan, Co Armagh, Northern Ireland.

After graduating from the University of Ulster with First Class Honours in Fashion & Textile Design, Niamh McCarthy founded Niamh Designs in 2019. Her remarkable talent and creative abilities were acknowledged through the prestigious RDS Award for Emerging Maker of Embellished Textiles. Niamh's dedication and passion for her craft have been instrumental in establishing Niamh Designs as a reputable brand in the world of embroidery and fashion.

Our bridal jackets showcase meticulous embroidery and impeccable craftsmanship, making them the perfect statement piece to complement your wedding ensemble. Whether your preference lies with delicate floral patterns, celestial motifs, or striking skeleton designs, we offer a diverse range of options to cater to your unique taste.

We are committed to promoting ethical and environmentally conscious fashion choices. That's why our jackets are expertly crafted using Vegan Faux Leather, a sustainable and animal-friendly alternative to real leather.

By handcrafting each jacket upon order, we minimize waste and maximize resource utilization. Our dedication to avoiding excess stock ensures that every item is created with meticulous care and a purposeful approach.

Not only will these jackets make a bold fashion statement, but they will also become cherished keepsakes that you can enjoy wearing time and time again, long after your wedding day. Each jacket is thoughtfully designed to add a touch of rock 'n roll flair to your special day.

In March 2023, Niamh McCarthy, the founder of 'Niamh Designs,' was honored with the prestigious Northern Ireland Young Business Woman of the Year award at the Women in Business Awards.

We take immense pride in Niamh's accomplishments and the well-deserved acknowledgment she has received for her remarkable entrepreneurial skills and unwavering commitment to success.
