christmas giveaways, loft competition, christmas 2014

We’re already feeling that fuzzy festive cheer here at The Loft, so much so that we’re kicking off our ’12 Days of Christmas’ Giveaway campaign from Nov 1st. Tis the season to give and share after all! And because we’re feeling so generous this year the prizes are better than ever, with a chance to win every day until Xmas Eve! One look at what’s up for grabs from our Designer giveaway tree and we promise even the Grinchiest people out there will suddenly rival Whoville’s best.

To win a designer prize in our 12 daily draws starting on December 13th – plus a bonus sleigh of giveaways on Xmas Eve  – simply pick up a raffle ticket with every 10 euros spent in-store. There’s no limit on tickets, so the more you shop – the more chances you have to win! Our prizes are on display so you can covet them up close, or follow us on Facebook to whet your winning appetite! The only question is…to gift that prize or keep it??

We are extremely excited to announce our brand new designer showcase which has just dropped at The Loft, the hotly awaited A/W collection by Colin Horgan. A recent graduate of The Limerick School of Art and Design with a BA in Womenswear. Reconstructing and redefining his aesthetic combined with organic techniques has earned Colin a deserved reputation for attention to detail. His work has been featured in the Triumph Inspiration Award, Vogue X MUUSE Talent 2013 as well as receiving KFW ‘One to Watch’ Designer 2013. Over the past three years Colin has worked with both emerging and international fashion labels such as Johanna Pihl (Stockholm, Sweden, 2012) , David Andersen (Copenhagen, Denmark, 2013) and Anne Sofie Madsen (Copenhagen, Denmark, 2014).

the loft market, dublin fashion collective,

We are a Dublin city collective of Irish fashion, jewelry designers, artists and vintage purveyors.  The Loft is a unique shopping experience, a retail market run by the designers themselves and is constantly changing with the arrival of new faces and art & design projects. We thrive on showcasing local talent and providing limited edition garments and accessories. From evening dresses and ethically produced fashion to sparkly gems and vintage handbags, The Loft is your go-to.

We love to hear from up-and-coming designers and also host a graduate showcase area, where fashion/art graduates have a wonderful opportunity to showcase their work for limited periods.

If you want to see why we are such a firm favourite on the Dublin shopping scene, meet our designers and view our current collections, we are open 7 days a week in the rafters of The Powerscourt Centre.
