Meet Our Team

Paul Alexander

After studying in Bristol University and receiving a BA in Fashion Design, Paul worked as a freelance designer in the UK, creating one off pieces for high profile clients. After moving to Ireland, Paul set up his own brand, Paul Alexander, stocking in House of Fraser UK and Ireland and many high end retailers in both countries.

In 2010, Paul took part in TV3’s Style Wars where he reached the semi-finals.

In March 2014, Project Fashion was created. Paul wanted to pass his wealth of knowledge and experience to the younger generation due to the fact that there was nothing like this available to him when he was growing up.

Project Fashion is an amazing opportunity for young children and teenagers to learn an invaluable life skill and potentially inspire them for their future careers.

Paul’s goal: To create a launch pad to potential future Irish Fashion Designers!

Inese Vizule

Inese is originally from Latvija and has settled in Ireland in 2005. She has been a tutor with Project Fashion since 2016.

From a young age she has loved arts, children and creating things. As a kid Inese made clothes for her dolls, which encouraged her interest in fashion design. This led her to go and study to be a tailor, she learned the skills of pattern cutting and received her full qualification.

Working with the youth is Inese’s second passion and she considers it a very rewarding privilege. She loves to see the expressions on children’s faces from their achievements and when they make new friends.

In 2019 Inese undertook a QQI Level 5 course In Children with Additional Needs, received her certificate, and has been working as a school SNA since.

Sharon Darcy

Sharon has studied at the Grafton Academy (Dublin) and worked for Michael H as a seamstress for many years, where she specialised in creating women’s clothing. She then went on to teach dressmaking workshops and Project Fashion classes.
She absolutely loves fashion and dressing up ; she thinks : “there’s nothing like putting on beautiful clothes to make you feel great, no matter what you’re wearing.” She also enjoys influencing her sons and educating them about current trends.
She’s started her own business a few years ago creating memory bears. Her deepest joy is seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they received their bespoke bears.

Teresa Kelly

Terri went to college at Mairin G international school of beauty, finishing with a cibtac diploma in Beauty therapy, continued with International and national post grad courses specialising in Nail care and artistry, and finally a Train the Trainer programme. She’s a member of the Confederation of International Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology and has worked in several Beauty Salons.
Terri has studied dressmaking in secondary school and has always sewn from then on. Inspired by fashion eras, particularly Old Hollywood Glam or 60’s vintage, she’s gained experience and hands on knowledge creating her own wardrobe for decades.
Though she’s busy working as a mobile Beauty Therapist and tutoring 3 locations for Project Fashion, she still finds time for the Gym and creating Memory bears or Cushions.
