Mother’s Day is coming, next Sunday to be precise. And who do we love and appreciate more than our Mothers and Grandmothers?!
Why not give her the gift of a silk scarf this Mother’s Day? We gift wrap our scarves in black tissue and place in a stunning, matt black, branded box. All scarf orders received by Susannagh Grogan Accessories webshop are carefully gift wrapped and delivered via courier to arrive safely and on time.
In March 2016, Margaret Molloy, the New York-based global chief marketing officer for branding firm Siegel+Gale, began sharing photos of herself wearing various Irish fashion pieces on her social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This year she has encouraged others to join in, to wear Irish and celebrate our heritage in March 2017. I was delighted to see her in Susannagh Grogan Scarves in many of her photos, along side other Irish designers that I admire. It’s such a fun campaign!
Below are some of my favourite selfie pics of Margaret wearing her Susannagh Grogan scarf collection. I was delighted to see her wearing one of my printed silk scarves in The Irish Times launch piece too.
My ‘Quotes Collection’ scarves have Oscar Wilde quotes placed discreetly in the corner, perfect for #Wearingirish. Do tag me if you join in! #Wearingirish
I’m really looking forward to the National Craft & Design Fair this week. I will be showing my unique printed silk scarves, as well as my new silk tunics and some of my printed leather. Susannagh Grogan Designs will be at Stand 39. Hope to see you there!
I have so enjoyed working on my new silk tunics, t-shirt and cover-ups! Finally we think the length is perfect and the fabric is perfect too. It took a while to get the simple shapes just right; with prints like mine colourful & busy, the shape needed to be very streamline! Early reaction has been fabulous and with a lovely mention in the Irish Times we had some great sales and had to get re making! 🙂
We were delighted that Constance Harris, FashEd of The Sunday Independent LIFE magazine, loves our scarves and she covered our recent scarf collection’s photoshoot in a fabulous 6 page spread! We had a great day on the shoot and Aisling O’Loughlin/Xpose from TV3 came out to film us. It was a fun day! 🙂

I love Anthropologie & of course, I love scarves!
One of my favourite things is working with my partners to bring something uniquely theirs to their customers. Anthropologies USA and I have been working together since 2013 to produce fabulous scarves for their fabulous customers. My latest loop Primevera Patchwork scarf in modal is now available on Anthropologie USA website and stores.
Thursday is St Patrick’s Day and with it comes the traditional “wearing of the green”. The last five years have seen an explosion of talent in Irish design, highlighted in 2015 by the team behind the Year of Irish Design.
What does it mean to be an Irish designer now?
Susannagh Grogan has worked and designed around the world. She finds “Irish style eclectic and constantly evolving”. Her accessories have international influences, and her “strong ties to countryside roots have fused with influences from travels abroad”. Grogan thinks “Irishness is pride in our heritage, a fantastic sense of humour, an openness and a resilience”.
