Boutique of the Week: Sophie Rieu
Sophie Rieu studied fashion design in the Grafton Academy in Dublin and went on to launch her own label, Unicorn, in 2003. Unicorn was the first sustainable fashion label in Ireland. In the beginning, all of the garments stocked in the boutique were made from organic fair-trade cotton. Her collections have grown to include wool, linen, hemp and silk sourced from Ireland, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy. Rieu’s boutique, The Garden of the Unicorn, is located in Greystones, Co. Wicklow. The talented French designer also offers a made to measure and upcycling service. For her attention to detail and strong ethical policies, we are awarding Sophie Rieu our coveted Boutique of the Week crown.
