Kathy de Stafford is a multiple award winning designer, whose designs reflect an ever evolving sense of style for which she has become internationally recognised. The classical lines, subtle colours and use of luxurious and beautiful fabrics have become signatures of her designs, making a de Stafford gown instantly recognisable.
As with all great couturiers a de Stafford cannot be replicated. Each gown is Irish made and finished by hand to couture standards. Our gowns are made for you, reflecting you and your own unique style. Kathy de Stafford trained internationally as a designer after becoming expert in cutting and making clothes under the tutelage of Irish, French and Arabic mentors while living in Ireland and Europe. Kathy first came to public prominence with her evening wear collection, which strongly reflected her knowledge and skills with hand made fabrics and her multinational design influence. Her designs became favoured by successive Miss Irelands, and were worn by them to 1st and 2nd places in the Miss World competition.
Winning many awards, including Bridal Designer of the Year on two occasions, has added to her premier position among Ireland's leading designers and her international reputation means that brides from Europe and USA visit her Dublin salon.
International Designer labels and designs are chosen by Kathy and her staff, who travel extensively to their exclusive sources to provide a wide and unique range of designer gowns to suit all price ranges. de Stafford also carries a comprehensive range of accessories that are also sourced directly.
de Stafford salons feature Kathy’s vision of a warm, welcoming stylish experience that is really easy to enjoy and very special for both you and us.
All of the de Stafford team apply Kathy’s love of design and style together with a sincere approach to everything we do.
