Gwen Walsh is a trained artist but since falling in love with millinery she now runs her own full time Millinery business (Breathnach Designs) based at her studio 'Kells Mill Craft Centre' Kells, Co. Kilkenny. Breathnach Designs is ever evolving while maintaining a feminine vintage style. Inspired by current trends and incorporating a nostalgic twist, Breathnach Designs is a name fast becoming synonymous with classic glamour and high quality bespoke headwear. Out of necessity Breathnach Designs moved to the present location as business increased. This has allowed the provision of Millinery Classes which assist numerous Arts students and the public in training in the initial stages of the Millinery Craft. In 2017 Breathnach Designs also won a Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce award.
Pieces can be made to order.
