Om Diva provides three floors of modern and vintage fashion housed in a quirky, feminine space on Drury Street in Dublin’s Creative Quarter. The area is filled with interesting design and clothes shops, but Om Diva is the one I return to most. Run by Ruth Ní Loinsigh, it has a special focus on emerging Irish talent.
The top floor is given over to Atelier 27, where emerging young Irish designers can showcase their talents. The ground floor hosts independent labels with loads of nice accessories and jewelry to match your outfit. The basement has a fantastic array of carefully chosen vintage clothes from the 1950s to 1980s.
This is the kind of vintage you actually would want to wear. I’ve picked up my favourite scarf and a great handbag here and always like popping in for a browse. The staff are really friendly and always willing to lend an ear and give some advice. They also now have a web shop that can give you a flavour of what’s on offer.
