The unique collaborations were started by Letterkenny-based Lottie Dolls founder Ian Harkin, who has long admired the global ambition and local tradition that Donegal’s apparel brands represent.

Ian connected with the people at the heart of Donegal crafts to celebrate their skills and tell their stories. Then, he took Lottie on some exciting trips through the county for her photoshoots.

The Lottie tour was very popular on social media during this month’s #DonegalConnect events –  highlighting the creativity, grit and community spirit our county is world-famous for.

Nevermind street style, it’s all about Wild Atlantic Way style up here.
