At Fashion Hse, the O’Rourke family are very proud to be third generation in the family business.  The company was founded by my grandfather Francis J O’Rourke in October 1933. In the intervening period of over 80 years, we have operated as manufacturers, distributors, agents, retailers and to this day still conduct our business under all of these channels.

Having trained with KPMG as a chartered account in the early eighties, I joined the family business in 1986, becoming Managing Director in 1991. In a fast moving industry the key to our success has been the ability to change.  We have a strong management team over seeing all aspects of the business from our own in house brands – Peruzzi & Bellensia. These brands are designed here in Dublin and manufactured on our behalf in Italy.
