38co is a contemporary and new own brand created by Kilkenny woman, Cathy O'Connor who worked as a fashion buyer and completed a course in fashion design.
The designer creates the range which is then made in Hong Kong. The pieces are funky, comfortable, affordable and well-finished.
As part of the research undertaken to create the look of the collection flew Cathy to Nepal, Hong Kong, Rome and Spain, where colour and fabric feel play a big part in the look.
The brand boasts a range of colours and the range was carefully selected for women from all walks of life and for all ages.
“I want to help women feel confident in their individual style every day, comfortable yet stylish,” said Cathy.


“For me, Style is an art form. You are a blank canvas – one that is fresh each day for you to paint to express your true self. By finding your individual style to allow you to feel confident each day is an important journey of self-discovery, style can help define your personality, “ she added.
38co offers collective skirts, trousers, tops, dresses, coats and leather bags with high quality fabric compositions.
The boutique is located at 38 Kieran Street and is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
