About me

Margaret was trained by some of the ‘leading lights of the Millinery industry’ such as Philip Tracey, Noel Stewart, Yvette Jelfs, Kristen Scott and Sarah Cant. While filled with the landscape of her hometown of Boston, Tubber in County Clare, O’Connor interprets Irish tradition and historicism through her own personal awakening. Her creations have attracted the attention and been worn by a broad range of celebrities, ranging from Lady Gaga to Finbar Furey. Margaret’s collection range from the eclectic haute couture to commercial pieces through to event/occasion wear.
