Deb Fanning is a young dynamic milliner from Dublin. Born in Rathfarnham, South Dublin, she grew up with a mother who was a 'dab hand on the sewing machine'. Deb used to pester her Mum to show her how to use the machine to create her own clothes.
Ever since then it has been an exciting journey encompassing her diverse interests. Beauty, or rather aesthetics has always been a central theme in her life. She enjoys making things beautiful and making beautiful things.
In the Autumn of 2014 after much thought Deb decided to start her own label Deb Fanning Millinery. She then started selling her ready to wear pieces in The Loft Market in the famous Powerscourt Centre in Dublin City - home to many of Ireland's now top designers when they started out.
Deb is mostly self-taught through experimenting with different millinery materials, fabrics and aesthetics. She enjoys the creative process immensely, from the first kernel of an idea to its manifestation in a headpiece or a hat, Deb finds it constantly stimulating and derives a great sense of satisfaction from the creative aspects of it.
Deb describes her designs as 'Vintage Inspired with a Contemporary Edgy Twist'. Her style ebbs and flows from her inspirations: animals, nature, most especially the colours of nature, rainbows, the reds and purples of berries and of course the people she meets.
Deb's designs have featured in Irish Tatler, Hot Press, The Irish Independent, The Wedding Journal and TV3's Xpose to name but a few.
