Mary Callan is a graduate of Central Saint Martins London, where she specialized in fashion knitwear. She gained experienced in the industry at Chloe, John Rocha, Lainey Keogh and Knit One. In 2012 she was the winner of the Peroni Moda Awards, gaining an opportunity to work with Italian designer Marco de Vincenzo in Milan. Her work has been featured in Thread, Image, Tatler, Expose and Life Magazines. Mary is originally from and currently based in Northern Ireland.
Mary’s work consists of colourful textured knitwear for women. The designer draws upon influences such as tribal textiles, surrealism, jacquard and intarsia to create a bold graphic aesthetic. The integrity of the product is a priority, from the selecting of the yarn to how pieces are made. Garments are hand loomed in house or made by family businesses in the UK and Ireland. All designs are made from luxurious natural yarns such as Scottish cashmere, lambswool and Italian Merino wool.
