Making It: Honor Fitzsimons

Making It: Honor Fitzsimons


The Prowlster have teamed up with West Coast Cooler & Vodka to create Making It, a series that celebrates the creative talent of women in Ireland. In this video, our second in a series of four, we talk to fashion designer Honor Fitzsimons.

Honor Fitzsimons is a graduate of Central Saint Martins and moved to Amsterdam, Paris, and New York – where she worked for Diane Von Furstenberg – before returning to Dublin to develop her own Knitwear brand. The Prowlster visited Honor’s studio in the Back Loft, Dublin to talk knitting needles and bold colours.
