ONA by Agne launched in November 2015, with the designer making her West Coast Cooler Belfast Fashion Week debut in October 2016 year. With a very distinctive look, ONA by Agne specialises in making luxury knitwear and home-wear from chunky merino wool and has already built up a following locally.
Inspired by her grandmother, Agne knits everything from chunky hats and scarves, to blankets and accessories, all in vibrant and contemporary shades.
"ONA - she is here, she is with me everywhere I go, guiding me through my fears, doubts and obstacles. My teacher, my inspiration...
She showed me ones how to create the MAGIC and I want to share it with you!
My story began with her and she is leading me forward.
From when I was a little girl she taught me to knit. We used to spend hours upon hours designing and making clothes, me - for my dolls and she would have knitted my jumpers and dresses. I could never get tired of watching her making, mending, adding on...
As I grew up the pasion for textiles grew in me. Today I am using my inherited skills and expertise with added contemporary attitude to create chunky knits and felt accessories.
Sharing the magic whist she is riding unicorns somewhere over the rainbow."
