Lisa Ryder, Designer

Moving her business back to her Mayo home inspired some of award-winning designer Lisa Ryder’s most successful collections. Lisa Ryder Designs is a luxury fashion accessories label set up in 2011. Since then she has had three scarf collections and in addition has recently introduced a range of elegant handbags to her collection. Her work is inspired by the landscape and environment around her.

“Inspired by urban and rural landscapes I love to create strong complimentary contrasts using these two different landscapes to inspire and create eye-popping prints,” she said. “You could say I put everything and more into my dynamic designs.”

Lisa distributes her products through Brown Thomas Dublin.

Why Mayo   

“I have been operating my ladies accessories business from Mayo since 2011,” says Lisa Ryder.  “The initial reason for moving home was to minimise my costs. However, as time progressed I find myself staying. The transport and communication networks allow me to conduct business efficiently. I also found wonderful support from many local bodies.”
