What better way is there to use our imagination than with accessories, called after our childhood dolls , harnessing the power of nostalgia. Accessories have the power to truly elevate your outfit and let your personality shine through.
MOD Designs is a headwear and accessory brand founded by me, Moira O’Toole in Kilkenny, Ireland, where I live. The name MOD Designs came about after much deliberation from the initials of my married name, Moira O’Donnell (my husband jokes that I finally took his name). The brand offers a unique range of beautifully handcrafted headpieces and accessories using the finest quality materials.
As I am also a qualified colour consultant and personal stylist, each piece will take face shape into consideration and compliment the whole silhouette. I will ensure you are comfortable and confident in your choice.
