EcoBabe Ireland: the style savvy, eco-chic blog











{April 8, 2008}   Pearl & Lace

When Prince penned the song “Diamonds and Pearl(s)………” it must have been an ode to Pearl Lowe, uber rock-chick and vintage fashionista!

We recently attended the launch of designer, Pearl Lowe’s dresses, which are available exclusively in Ireland at fab fashion emporium, Butik in Newbridge, County Kildare.

For those not in the rock n roll know, Pearl is a one-time supreme rock chick turned organic Goddess! Now married to Danny Goffey of Supergrass fame, Pearl has shunned the bright lights of London for a 14th century country retreat in Hampshire with organic gardens and nature abound.

Pearl’s new range of divine, vintage inspired lace dresses are just gorgeous & make us feel like pretty Audrey Tatou and Audrey Heburn look-a-likes!

Her range is made from ethically sourced vintage lace and each dress is bespoke and can be tailered to the customers own size. Pearl works with a fab dress-maker and takes orders for one-off pieces too, she’s currently making a vintage inspired, eco-chic wedding dress for a client using salvaged lace.

Butik, which is owned by the fab Mel Coyne, is just brimming with fabulous frocks in all colours and designs, but Pearl’s range is the first ethically inspired range to adorn this chic boutique and hopefully we’ll see more ethical brands in the store soon (hint).

Butik, Whitewater Avenue, Newbridge, Co. Kildare.
