Helen Steele

wide HelenSteele

Helen Steele is an established Irish artist and fashion designer known for her exuberant use of colour and inspiring pattern. Through mastery of her craft and bold and strong use of colour she has created a unique style of wearable art and signature prints.

“Like my clothes, my house is covered in paint splashes and colour. My work is heavily based on colour theory, and the joie de vivre of colour affects both painting and style. Colour has such power. I dress for myself, for comfort and in what cheers me up, and I apply the exact same standards to interior design.”

With clients including Diane von Fürstenberg, actor Donald Sutherland, supermodel Helen Christensen and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi Helen’s work has certainly been well received! Her exciting collection for Ceadogán, ‘Chromosome’ is reflective of the bold colour and pattern combinations used in her printed textiles and fashion designs.
