THE STORY

Feri by Faye

FéRí is a slow fashion brand born out of creativity and nostalgia, designed to bring joy to the wearer. 

 

THE STORY- FéRí by Faye Anna

‘The concept for FéRí came from a love of making things combined with a desire to create and own unique and beautiful clothes. I have always been a keen collector of vintage fabrics, clothes and trinkets. I am interested in the story associated with pre-loved treasures, they have been a constant source of inspiration in my career and life. I grew up on a farm where I was surrounded by antiques, salvaged and re-purposed furniture so the importance of being creative and resourceful are values that were instilled in me and my sisters from a young age and reflected in my designs today. 

I believe in responsible fashion design and we are committed to being transparent in the decisions we make across our brand.  FéRí collections are designed in an array of colourful prints and embroideries which I hand-paint and draw in the studio in Wexford. Every piece is made using natural certified organic fabrics or dead-stock  and re-purposed textiles. The collections are hand-made in tiny quantities both locally in Ireland and with a certified manufacturer in India. ‘

FéRí pieces capture the energy of old and new, designed for those who want clothes they can love wearing, cherish and eventually pass on.

Wear. Care. Mend. Lend.
