Designer Chupi takes New York by storm
Her dainty creations are adored by Irish celebs including Nicola Hughes, Angela Scanlon and Pippa O'Connor. Now jewellery designer Chupi Sweetman-Pell is considering world domination.
The Dublin-based talent has just returned home from a successful trip to the Big Apple showcasing her brand Chupi at prestigious design exhibition NY Now.
"Our new collection has been going down a storm in Manhattan. New York has been an amazing whirlwind, we took our first order at 9.15am on the first day and it's been crazy since," she told the Diary.
"It's so amazing seeing people all over the world loving the jewellery I make."
Fresh from her American success, Chupi hasn't had time to rest on her laurels as she's destined for the fashion capital of the world.
"Next month we are jetting off to Paris and then showing at London Fashion Week and New York Fashion week," she said.
"It all feels a little surreal, I keep having to pinch myself," she said.
