Leading Northern Irish fashion designer Grainne Maher has spoken about her latest creation – a bespoke Christmas tree for Belfast's Fitzwilliam Hotel.
It's the second time Gráinne and the Great Victoria Street boutique hotel have collaborated on a designer Christmas tree.
The partnership began in 2013 when they launched NI's first designer Christmas tree, following in the footsteps of globally renowned designers Lanvin, John Galliano and Dolce & Gabbana, who have created Christmas trees for world-famous Claridge’s Hotel.
Gráinne’s second design is now in residence in the Fitzwilliam lobby and features over 200 custom-made decorations inspired by her Pluck & Devour jewellery range and the hotel’s modern interior.
Gráinne said: “This year I continued with a contemporary feel for the tree using my suspended Owl Moon Star jewellery and Swarovski detailing inspired by my millinery, but I stuck with a traditional festive colour scheme of red, green and gold.
“I’d encourage guests and passers-by to call in and enjoy the festive atmosphere.”
The Christmas tree designed by Gráinne will remain in the hotel lobby until the New Year.
