Help Jennifer reignite the 20th Century Arts Movement through fashion. #supportthecelticrevival

Jennifer Rothwell wants to reignite the Celtic Revival (also know as the Celtic Twilight) of the 19th and 20th century and bring it to the 21st Century to change the face of fashion. A pioneer of Irish manufacturing, Jennifer wants to use her vivid prints to recreate the Celtic Twilight and bring it to a new audience.

Jennifer’s clothes are both designed and manufactured in the heart of Dublin and are aimed for tasteful men and women who want timeless, dramatic designs that make the wearer feel positive. We want to be able to create clothes that represent art and culture, mixing the contemporary with the classic!

All our prints have a very special story behind:

Harry Clarke Print Collection Series One​: From Jennifer’s Harry Clarke Print Collection Series One, this print is inspired by the vivid colours from the stained glass windows made by Irish Artist Harry Clarke; married with Fairy Folklore Mythology. Jennifer was drawn to The Eve of St Agnes stained glass panels’ and it’s use of vibrant purples, blues, oranges and reds. Inspired by the English poet John Keats, the panels tell the romantic story of two lovers escaping to be together on a cold windy stormy night.

Harry Clarke Madeline Print Collection Series Two: Jennifer’s second series of Harry Clarke themed prints are based on Clarke’s work inspired by the poem ’The Eve of St Agnes’, based upon the myth that a young Maiden Madeline would see a vision of her lover if she performed certain rites on the eve of St Agnes Day. Jennifer’s prints are full of rich jewel-like hues, especially purples and blues and accented with golds and gunmetal. With dazzling colour, etched and scratched effects and immense detail, diverse tones and texture are produced. The prints are infused with light and have a magical and ethereal quality.

«The 1916 GPO Print Collection Is a positive commemoration of the 1916 Rising, Irish history and free expression - and 2016 was the 100th anniversary» Jennifer stated. The inspiration for this compilation came from the positive aspects of this controversial era – such as the architecture of the GPO and the famous Hibernia Statue. Hibernia is the Classical Latin name for the Island of Ireland and the spelling was influenced by hibernus that means «wintry. These features are celebrated through sensational tones of purples and blues.
