About Us

Based in the iconic Powerscourt Townhouse Centre nestled between South William and Claredon Steet in Dublin city's 'Creative Quarter', Design Centre has been at the very heart of the Irish fashion industry for over thirty years. 

Design Centre was the first boutique of its kind in Ireland stocking 100% Irish labels. 

Louise Kennedy, Lainey Keogh, John Rocha and many of today's most inspirational established designers cut their teeth with their graduate collections on Design Centre's floor. 

Throughout the years, Design Centre has consistently nourished young Irish designers who went on to forge successful careers in the industry, helped by the close mentoring of owner Ashling Kilduff. 

Ashling started out in Design Centre as a sales assistant twenty five years ago working her way up, through her passion, determination and sheer hard work to the position of owner which she has held for the past twelve years. 

Today Design Centre continues to stock the very best of established Irish designers including Philip Treacy while constantly striving to deliver exclusive new and exciting collections such as Catriona Hanly and Sookyoung Song. 

The team at Design Centre are on hand to offer expert styling advice and friendly service, we hope to see you soon!
