Behind The Brand…our story.
Small ideas can grow into big projects. It was the fruitless search for the perfect white shirt for a special event that started the ball rolling - the idea of starting a new brand was born.
ANDTATE is the brainchild of Richard Tate and Sharon Hoey, a partnership that was established in 1985. Sharon Hoey is the highly regarded designer behind the eponymous fashion label, a brand renowned for luxury, simple silhouettes and beautiful craftsmanship. Richard Tate is the business partner who developed and expanded the brand that has enjoyed such critical and commercial success since its creation.
The AND represents the bringing together of our 30 years in the fashion business in Ireland. Our circular looped logo represents the threads that stitch our shirts together and binds our stories: past family, present business and our new brand.
