As weddings and events are back in full swing, Folkster’s design team here in Ireland have been adding even more styles to their beloved event and bridesmaid's collections!
Here’s a look at just some of the outfits hand created by Folkster with wedding guests, christenings, dinner parties and more in mind. From slinky satin to vintage-inspired embellishment, the Folkster team are constantly adding new heirloom pieces to their lineup.
With a focus more on slow fashion, these are stocked in small batches and produced responsibly for Folkster with their trusted production partners in Spain and India.
Folkster, an independent Irish brand started by Blanaid Hennessy in Co. Kilkenny, is proud to grow through life with their customers. Find the full collections on folkster.com or in their huge Dundrum store, or in the original gorgeous store in Kilkenny.
The Folkster Alena Dress is an amazing all-rounder and is remembered at the end of every soiree as being notably glamourous.
One of many midi length occasion dresses in our collection, this dress is made with rich luxurious stretch satin, which has the perfect weight and fall to it. Our customers love how flattering this dress is!
The Alena Dress is no one-hit-wonder, it comes in olive, rust, dusty coral and ivory.
We love how it works for a bridesmaid, wedding guest and can easily be styled more casually with a denim or leather jacket - win win win!
If you’re in the market for a new ‘nice top’, then the Folkster Vida Top is the one for you!
This top has beautiful delicate beading, an amazing cut and a flawless fit. This top can be paired with several different options of skirts or pants and will effortlessly take you from pre-dinner prosecco to rock the boat in the early hours.
At Folkster, we love this top paired with our Tessa and Sarena Skirts for a beautiful and sleek wedding day look. We also see you bringing it out again for balmy summer night dinners (that might be in Spain though!)
Our collection of skirt and top separates are always in demand for their versatility. There’s ample opportunity to style one of our skirts with a t-shirt or jumper, or our beaded top with wide-leg pants and be worn again after the big day!
This top ticks a lot of boxes for wedding guests and comes in both dusty rose and silver.
If you’re looking for some vibrancy, then our Calla Gown is the one for you. Our customers have been loving this incredible Fuschia pink colour in-store, not to mention the unique design!
This gown features an oh-so-flattering one-shoulder design, fitted waist and a high-low hem, giving it the perfect combination of both colour and silhouette pop!
This dress really speaks for itself, but we love to accessorise with one of our beaded belts or hairbands, for some extra Folkster style.
Folkster have you covered, in shimmering sparkles!
Our Aryana Dress in gold is hand-beaded to perfection and is a huge favourite amongst the Folkster community.
Who said sequins are for gig season and winter festivities? Our saying is ‘wear what you love’, and all year round, we love a bit of beading!
This dress is made with a lightweight sequin for extra comfort and has a slight elastane in the lining to allow for easy movement. This is the perfect dress for dancing the night away at your best friends/cousins/aunts wedding, or whatever you’re celebrating.
This dress also comes in ivory and is the perfect fit for an alternative wedding dress, wedding day 2, or any event this occasion season.
If you fancy some cascading waterfall sleeves, then look no further! The Gwen Dress will have you turning heads for all of the right reasons.
The Gwen Dress is a midi length dress that has the most amazing and intricate pattern of gold, pewter and taupe beading, which really makes the design pop.
This dress is perfect for layering, you can add a duster coat and a thick vintage belt and totally transform the look of the dress, we can see you getting loads of wear and compliments in this dress.
Designed in Ireland, this warm antique gold beauty is a piece you can wear for so many occasions and is guaranteed to make you feel wow!
Floral embroidery is the perfect addition to any dress, particularly for a Spring-Summer wedding guest!
The Folkster Audrina Dress has delicate sleeves, a floaty skirt and a hand-embroidered, floral pattern of ethereal dreams. The Floaty skirt allows for air circulation, in warmer climates, this is perfect for swishing around on the dance floor after an already heartwarming ceremony.
Another one of our exclusive, designed by Folkster, in Ireland pieces- it’s an undeniable favourite both in-store and on www.folkster.com
There is no better sartorial sum than a Folkster gown and accessories.
We adore accessories here in Folkster, what we love most is their versatility.
Folkster stylists love layering belts! By pairing two belts together, you can completely transform your outfit. So, do not be afraid to experiment, as we said, we love accessory versatility.
Did you know, Folkster Imperial belts are perfectly matched to our collection of gowns, dresses and separates? This takes the stress of colour matching away!
If you’re looking for a ‘sole’ mate this wedding season, then our Delilah Heels are calling!
These heels come in 9 shades and are renowned for comfort. From walking down the aisle to treading the dancefloor, these heels will keep you on the move all day. Not to mention, the block heel doesn’t get stuck in the gravel, unlike some kitten heels or skillet heels. I think we’ve all been there ;)
This headband is one of many in our collection and works with an upstyle and sits well into flowing locks. No matter what hairstyle, the mix of metal embellishments reflects the light perfectly.
Our favourite saying is ‘wear what you love’ so don’t be afraid to wear your Folkster pieces again and again, and have fun styling them! And go on, tag @shopfolkster on Instagram or Facebook - we LOVE seeing how you style your look!
