For many years, Joanne lived and worked between Ireland, the UK and India exploring manufacturing sources as well as working with luxury artisan makers.
This vast breadth of research, design and product development has allowed Joanne to explore broad categories within design, manufacturing and lecturing, as a businesswoman distributing worldwide. Since creating the JOANNE HYNES brand, Joanne has shown at London and Paris Fashion weeks. In 2006, JOANNE HYNES FOR TOPSHOP was launched in the UK and Ireland and sold out. The JOANNE HYNES SS12 Catwalk collection at London Fashion Week piqued the attention of Pretty Polly, leading to the JOANNE HYNES X Pretty Polly range of desirable and wearable hosiery. There are over 33+ stockists worldwide including leading retailers Nordstrom in the USA, Selfridges, ASOS Online and Topshop in the UK, as well as Arnotts in Ireland.
Joanne's accessory collections, including the iconic embellished Crystal Collars, are available internationally including at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge and Leeds and within luxury stores in China, Dubai, Italy, Korea, Kuwait, Ireland and Japan.
