Designer and creative director Meritta designed and made her first suit at just nine years old and later spent years in London working at various design houses and studios before returning to Ireland to open Ail Ruin design centre in 1995 with her husband Dermot.
Ail Ruin gained an national reputation for it's creative curation of international labels at Meritta's own designs.
Bridget grew up on the shop floor learning from and helping her mom before gaining an academic background in Law and spent time working in marketing at Selfridges, London.
Mise Tusa marks an exciting new adventure that focuses on Meritta's innovative designs and Bridget and Meritta working more closely together.
