Irish based Philadelphia native Katie O’Riordan is the driving force behind Theo+George – a lifestyle brand rooted in simplicity and minimalism. Simplicity represented by beautiful, contemporary and responsible products. Theo + George was started to help people get more from life with less, by providing timeless solutions that can be either dressed up or dressed down and that make everyday effortless.
Progressive, and ambitious, Katie was determined to create a collection that shares her own values of simplicity and sustainability, while also being durable and easy to wear. As a busy mom of two, she recognises the value of a life made easier and was driven to share this principle with others, with a curated crafted collection of clothes that work together to reduce the need for unnecessary consumption.
With a degree in physics and a background in architecture and fashion, Katie has taken her unique skills and applied them to her life’s passion. She has received increasing recognition for her work in the fashion industry – in 2015 she made the shortlist for the IDI Universal Design Award and was awarded the title of 2017 IFIA Fashion Designer of the Year. She has collaborated with the likes of Paul Smith, L.A.M.B., and Disney. She was also part of the design team that produced the US Snowboard Team uniforms for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
The brand is sold online (global shipping) as well as via periodic pop-up shops throughout Ireland (see website and/or Facebook for more details).
