About Braeda Horan Designs
 Braeda Horan
Braeda excels at empowering today's busy working woman. She considers this to be the most important aspect of her work.

Braeda's knitwear is a soft and feminine option to the traditional woman's business suit. Her ensembles are extremely versatile and can fulfill many specific needs, be they work-related or social.

She offers her seasonal array of styles in a variety of colors and yarns that people can custom order. She says, "I like the tactile sense of knitwear... the way it feels... moves... the way you can shape it architecturally."

Braeda's collection combines basic sweater shapes like pullovers, vests, jackets, skirts and pants with not so basic treatments like antique buttons, pointed collars, intarsia knits, contrast bindings, and richly colored double-knit yarns.

Braeda is known for the details that she adds to her sweater shapes, such as rows of tiny buttons or beads to trim a collar or cuff. Even with the details, subtlety is of utmost importance in her designs.  Her pieces are always easy to wear and of a timeless quality.

Braeda declares that any figure type can carry off the knitwear. "A knitted piece can make a woman look very feminine and sexy. You can be absolutely gorgeous as yourself."

Braeda Horan's background is diverse. She was formally trained in England in fashion design and apprenticed with one of the couture houses in Paris, where she learned the classical methods of clothing construction.

An adventuress at heart, she traveled to Africa and later to South America, where she fell in love with the craftspeople of those countries. She was able to promote their craftwork through various mediums, such as her own tribal art gallery in London, and this influenced how Braeda set up her own business years later.
