About Jennifer Rothwell
Born in New York and raised in Dublin, Fashion Designer Jennifer Rothwell graduated with honours from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 1995. Jennifer knows the A to Z of the fashion industry as she gained vast experience as the Director of Design and Production for many high profile New York fashion design companies. Jennifer accredits her most valuable experience to her time at Norma Kamali where she worked for several years. She later went on to work and gain further fashion experience with Katayone Adeli, Calvin Klein, Language and Yigal Azrouel, working at Director level in each company. As her reputation grew, Jennifer was constantly head hunted and in demand by competitors such as Daryl K, Betsey Johnson, Anna Sui and Rogan, co designers for Edun. Jennifer Rothwell has worked as director of production in several companies where she was responsible for restructuring and implementing costing cutting measures and budgeting. She is both creative and business minded.
Following her return to Ireland, Jennifer established her own fashion label, Made in Ireland. Jennifer Rothwell manufacturing units are based at her studio in Artane, Dublin. Jennifer prides herself that her garments are digitally printed and produced domestically in Ireland. Jennifer sells her designs in her flagship boutique in beautiful Georgian Powerscourt Townhouse in Dublin city centre and worldwide online at jrothwell.net. As her garments are printed and manufactured in close radius to the studio the carbon footprint of the garments is greatly reduced.
