Learn more about David O Malley: Ireland’s leading avant-garde fashion designer.


David O Malley is an Irish designer who is currently based in Belgium. His work does not challenge boundaries. It ignores them. After all, defining yourself in opposition to something still privileges that something. Rather than formal conformity or transgression, unique sculptural pieces which evoke an emotional reaction are always the center of gravity in O Malley’s work.

Beginning his fashion label upon graduating from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin in 2014, David O Malley quickly became recognisable for his unique avant-garde aesthetic. By manipulating and experimenting with luxury as well as more unconventional materials, he continuously reinvents himself, with his designs engaging audiences with a world of excitement, danger and desire. In this spirit of continuous reinvention, David O Malley has recently expanded his label beyond fashion and into homeware, lifestyle and interiors.

David O Malley’s work has been nominated for several prestigious national and international awards and receives significant media attention. Over the years his pieces have featured in various events such Vogue Fashion Festival at the Royal Albert Hall and the Berlin Fashion Film Festival. His daring designs are also regular fixtures in countless publications such as Dazed and Confused, Hot Press, Flawless, Totally Dublin, The Irish Times, The Irish Independent and The Irish Examiner. He has also collaborated with numerous other designers, artists and musicians: designing custom pieces for their performances, cinematics and events.
