Brendella Skirts is an Irish clothing manufacturer which has been operating in Dun Laoghaire since the 1930s.

The short documentary tells the story of the skirt company from it’s origin, how it grew through exporting, the trials and tribulations it faced during multiple recessions and how it has survived to this day.

Brendella Skirts is one of the remaining pieces of old Ireland where the place and the people tell a story decades in the making.


Working in a team of four, my role involved planning and pre-production, operating a camera during the shoot and editing the footage into a final cut using Adobe Premiere Pro.
