I know, I know, there are a few other designers in Ireland but here is, in my good opinion, the finest. Just look what my good friend Bonzie is up to these days. The above skirt that reminds me of something an angel would wear is made to order with yards and yards of tulle. Most of the designs on Bonzie's Etsy site are like those shown here: a combo of SteamPunk meets Victoriana. One of Etsy's golden sellers, Bonzie is made up of aunt and niece design team Ger and Bonzie. Two creative minds equal one magnificent design at a time.

Like myself, Bonzie also writes about her craft. Check out her Tattered Couture Column in the latest issue of Belle Amoire, a cutting edge mag devoted to showcasing the work of wearable art designers.
