Designer Don O’Neill of Theia: The Cannon Canon

Theia is inspired by the Greek Goddess of the same name whose gift was light and everything she looked upon glittered, becoming luminous and radiant. We caught up with Don O’Neill at his studio to talk about Ireland, glitter and sequins, and his inspiration.

Cannon: How has your brand grown since its first runway show in Fall 2012?

Don O’Neill: The Impact of the runway show has helped propel the brand globally. [We had] an amazing article in the Wall Street Journal by Christina Binkley covering the Theia show. It’s truly rewarding to see all that hard work pay off.

C: Along with “bringing out every woman’s inner goddess,” what other attitudes and attributes do you believe your clothes posses?

DO: Theia not only brings out a woman’s inner goddess, the clothes are designed to be chic and elegant. The collection is made using the finest European fabrics that are normally found on dresses that cost 3 and 4 times more at retail. Each dress is thought through from design to fabric, ensuring that the garment is flattering, beautifully made and the embroidery is exquisite in fine detail.Read more
