Dundee Fashion Week

Dundee Fashion Week - Genna Delaney Jewellery Artist

Dundee Fashion Week

If you haven’t heard, Dundee is hosting it’s own Dundee Fashion Week between 7th-13th May. It’s about time Dundee had it’s own Fashion Week as there are lots of extremely talented fashion designers in Dundee.

So I’m super excited to be part of it. There is a whole host of events to take part in throughout the week. You can see more details about these on the Dundee Fashion Week website.

But the two events that I’d like to point you to are:

Iconic Dundee – The future of Fashion

Fashion is always moving with the times and designers are using new ways of producing catwalk pieces.  Stella McCartney and Iris Van Herpen are among the growing contingent using 3-D printing to create fashion. Smaller independent designers like myself are also incorporating technology to create wearable pieces.

Would you like to find out more about 3D printing and how it works? I’m teaming up with Concept Group Ltd, on Saturday 12th May at the Overgate shopping centre, Dundee. We are hosting workshops and demonstrations throughout the day between 10-4.30pm. The timings are 10am; 12 midday; 2pm; 3.30pm. I will take you on a journey by showing you how to design your own 3D printed piece and Concept Group Ltd will take you through and demystify the 3-D printing process with their Makerbot 3-D printers  demonstrating how a 3D printed piece is made.

Dundee Fashion Week Finale

The fashion week will end with the waw factor in a climatic catwalk finale. Dundee Fashion Week presents Tayside’s finest independent designers and boutiques. The Dundee Fashion Week Finale celebrates independent and small businesses, as well as emerging designers from Duncan and Jordanstone College of Art and Design and Dundee and Angus College. I will showcase my 3d printed collection in the catwalk finale on 13th May at the Caird Hall, Dundee from 5pm-6.30pm.

Tickets will be on sale soon for this event. Head to the event page to purchase your tickets. Malmaison will be providing cocktails to get you into the party mood.

I’m looking for real women to model my collection on the catwalk. What I mean by real women is no matter how old, or how big or small, everyone is beautiful. So get in touch if you’d like to get involved.

My family bought me a voucher for a 1:1 workshop to make a silver ring for my Birthday. Genna's workshops are informative in the process of jewellery making and good fun. Genna has a lovely teaching style.

Best of all you go home with a beautiful ring you made.

I would definitely do another workshop and if I could give Genna 10 stars I would. Thank you.

Samantha

Picked up my Wedding Ring today and words can't describe how happy I am. It looks amazing. Few wee (happy) tears on the way home. Thank you so much. p.s. thank you from my "Mum" too xxx

June

Genna design recently carried out a repair on my wife's engagement ring. I could not fault Genna's workmanship and the cost of the repair was very competitive. I would not hesitate to return in the future.

Michael

I had a fantastic time on Saturday, thanks Genna for being patient. Love my ring. Robert asked what I was making next so I might be back. Thanks once again for a great day x

Liz

Had a lovely day with Genna making our wedding rings! What a great touch to add to our special day! Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to make their wedding rings, more than just a ring!

Stephanie 2018

Genna created my engagement and wedding ring and they are absolutely beyond perfect! She really took her time at the initial consultation and went over all of the tiniest details - when we got the pictures of the finished rings I was totally blown away - they were exactly what I had pictured in my head, if not better!!

Jessica

Genna, it was lovely to meet you last evening and I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the beautiful necklace. It is truly gorgeous. What a talent you have. I've not taken it off since last Thursday! I was even wearing it for Crufts all weekend!

Keep following your dream!

Jenny Campbell 2018

Really enjoyable and educational day, we both had loads of fun. Would recommend to anyone looking to make there own personalised ring

Gordon & Gill

As Alison and Ron’s neighbours we have witnessed first hand this special and devoted love and the beautiful commission pieces you made reflect beautifully their enduring love . Alison wears them with humble pride.

Yvonne

Today my mother enjoyed her Christmas treat from us – a four hour ring making class with jeweller Genna Delaney. She totally loved it and has made a wonderful ring. She reckons Genna is a natural teacher. As a former head teacher she’s good at spotting such talents. If you want to learn jewellery making then Genna is the person to see!

Prof Mike Press

Whoah this blog is fantastic. I love reading your posts. Keep up the good work! You know, a lot of people are searching around for this information, you can aid them greatly.

Natalie

I'm over the moon with my ring! Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful piece which means so much to me. I absolutely love it.

Irene 2018

Thanks so much for the beautiful ring I bought yesterday!! Will be in touch about a commission a piece soon!!

Genna has lots of lovely jewellery to buy. The best things are bespoke though. She made me a few unique items using much loved heirlooms and updating them.
