Orla Kiely began her career studying at Dublin’s National College of Art & Design (NCAD), before travelling to New York to work in a design company where she claims she “gained the best colour training anyone could possibly have”. Her first New York store opened in Soho’s Mercer Street in 2011, with a second opening on Bleecker Street in the West Village in 2016. At The 2017 I.NY Gathering in Dromoland Castle, Orla told the stories of her relationship with New York, and the personal and professional impact the city has had on her career.
