With a shared passion for creativity, Galway sisters Sinéad and Emer McGovern began their millinery journey back in 2008. Combining both of their names (and their love for all things sparkly!) they created their brand - Designs by Shimmer.
With a keen eye for detail and using only the finest quality materials, they handcraft luxury hats, headpieces and crowns perfect for a day at the races or to finish a wedding guest outfit. Their designs have been worn by stylish ladies all around the globe and have been featured on Irish television and print.
Sadly, on 23rd February 2018 after fighting a brave two year battle against breast cancer, Sinéad passed away surrounded by her loving family. Her passion for millinery will forever be remembered and she will always be a part of Designs by Shimmer.
Emer is currently based in Sydney, Australia and is busy creating and sending beautiful headpieces to all corners of the world.
