Lorna Doyle is a designer who strives to push the boundaries of experimental textiles. Her body of work features heat manipulated recycled materials combined with traditional printing techniques. Lorna has recently been recycling wetsuits and exploring different ways to experiment with material that would other wise be seen as waste. Her journey as a designer is a constant exploration recycled materials.
The Circular Economy is imperative in Lorna's designs. It is a vision of a world where both making and the using of products wastes nothing. It offers an alternative to the traditional linear economy ( make, use, dispose ) and aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them while they are still in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.
Lorna has sold her designs to New York Fashion labels such as Tommy Hilfiger, Kenneth Cole and Reed Krakoff. Her work has been exhibited and published in New York, Paris, Brussels and London. Her designs are handmade and finished in her Deal studio.
