We are counting down the days until [MADE] Store & Gallery, the Powerscourt Centre’s beautiful new boutique, opens its doors…
Whether intentionally or not, [MADE] Store & Gallery have done a beautiful job of building suspense for their opening this spring. Walking through the upper floor of the Powerscourt Townhouse, the doors and windows of the space they are set to occupy are covered by a minimally designed announcement forecasting their SS16 coming. Behind the coverings, final preparations are underway for an exciting new Irish retail experience.
A natural outcome of the unstoppable new wave of Irish design, [MADE] is dedicated to championing homegrown talent. With curation by award-winning jewellery designer Chupi Sweetman and designer Kate Nolan, [MADE] will carry the latest fashion and accessory collections from cutting-edge new designers such as We Are Islanders, Tissue and Laura Kinsella millinery as well as internationally renowned names like Sorcha O’Raghallaigh, Danielle Romeril and Natalie B. Coleman.
The store will also showcase art installations from Dublin-based creatives Queens of Neon (who have previously designed installations for Ballymaloe Litfest and Ardbia) and Japanese collective Oh My Garden (hence the gallery). After an extremely successful pre-Christmas pop-up in 2015, [MADE] are aiming for an April 30th re-open, and we can’t wait to see the newly renovated space or their delectable spring selection of stock.
