This Aran-jumper wedding dress is a real thing made by a Kerry-born designer
Mmm, scratchy.

IRISH DESIGNER DON O’Neill has achieved many things in his career, including dressing Oprah Winfrey for the Oscars.

But perhaps nothing has made its mark quite like Kerry-born O’Neill’s latest creation: an Aran-jumper style wedding dress.

Yes, that’s an entire floor-length white gown in cableknit and fisherman’s rib.

The dress was shown by O’Neill’s label Theia as part of their autumn collection at New York Fashion Week.

It got a favourable response from the fashion world, with coverage from Glamour…

… Brides Magazine…

… and The Knot, which called it a “standout” of the collection.

We have just one concern: wouldn’t it be very, very itchy? All over?
