Ready to wear collection

Whether you are looking for something chic and elegant or modern and dramatic, the ready to wear collection offers a variety of styles to suit all face shapes and skin tones.

Bridal collection

Choose from statement headpieces, vintage styles, beaded hairbands or classic or quirky designs to suit your personality style.

Bespoke design

If you would like a custom made piece for a special occasion, I offer a one to one consultation in person or by telephone/zoom call, to discuss style of hat, colour and overall look you wish to achieve.

About me

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.
