Patricia B and Sheila Bennett

Patricia B is a mother, daughter run business based on The Wild Atlantic Way, Co. Kerry. From a very early age, Patricia was at her mother's side eager to get her hands on whatever fabric or thread she could to 'design' her own clothes. So, the path was paved and a lifetime collaboration began. When Covid19 arrived and Ireland went into lock down, they quickly began making tunics and face coverings for the Frontline on a voluntary basis. This new venture very quickly began to grow, with people far and wide requesting fashionable, comfortable face coverings for their own personal use. 

Sheila started her career in the textile industry over three decades ago, and forged a stellar career in textile design and management. During this time, Sheila furthered her education in design, receiving a degree in Fashion Design in 2009, receiving the highly sought after award of Student of the Year on her journey. Sheila has a love of natural fabrics, cotton and wool being her favourites. Throughout her career, Sheila created many bespoke designs for customers for weddings, occasions, and Race Meets - many of which won prestigious awards for their bespoke designs. Sheila continues to make huge strides in her field, and looks forward to bringing new ideas to life, aided by her daughter Patricia.

Patricia began creating and designing from a very early age, under the watchful and nurturing eye of her mother. She often notes how she designed, and wore, her very first creation at the age of eight! Patricia's love of design blossomed throughout her teens, and her study of design continued in the study of architecture. Despite following her teaching vocation shortly after this, Patricia continued to fulfill her love of structural design through the medium of millinery. Patricia has completed various courses of further study in the area of millinery design, and began her small millinery business in 2013. Patricia has had winning designs in various Race Meet competitions and events. Patricia strives to progress in her field, and looks forward to pushing boundaries in design alongside her mother Sheila.
