1 x 50′ Arts Documentary.
‘I’ve always had this drive in me to find out who I am creatively, this urge that won’t let me rest quietly’.
This documentary celebrates the work of one of Irelands greatest living female designers. Clodagh has been an International design icon for over half of the 20th century. Now in her eighties, she continues to defy all barriers of gender, age and race to forge a critically acclaimed global career. We explore what drives this single-minded designer.
Named among the Top 100 Designers in the World by Architectural Digest and already inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame, Clodagh, as she’s simply known, at 83, is an internationally recognised interior designer at the top of her game. This is the story of an extraordinary Irish woman and artistic trailblazer who, in her eighties, continues to inspire modern designers worldwide. It is the story of how the courageous difficult personal decisions she has made throughout her life, have impacted her and her family and define how she views the world today.
But how did a young girl from the west of Ireland achieve the unlikely status of becoming one of the world’s top designers, based in New York, and carve out an illustrious career that spans six decades?
