Wicklow National Park is featured in the October issue of Sweden’s top Fashion Magazine STYLEBY. And what better location to showcase this season’s trends than the country that brought you tweed? The story was photographed by Benjamin Vnuk (LundLund) and styled by Columbine Smille for STYLEBY Magazine.

Photographer Benjamin Vnuk captures Model Lena Hardt with the stunning Wicklow Mountains as backdrop

STYLEBY October issue 

Wicklow is known as the Garden of Ireland and it is not hard to see why!

STYLEBY October issue Wicklow 


The STYLEBY team isn’t the first to stage a stylish shoot in Ireland and they certainly won’t be the last. We found more photographers and stylists who managed to capture Ireland (and fashion) at its finest.

Vogue US and Annie Leibovitz in County Kerry


Vogue September issue 

The lush Kerry backdrop steals the show in Vogue’s revered September issue. Model Daria Werbowy and actor Adam Driver were following in WB Yeats and Maud Gonne’s footsteps in the dreamy shoot; imagined up by creative director Grace Coddington and photographed by the legendary Annie Leibovitz.

Braving the heights at the Cliffs of Moher

No models suffered vertigo during this shoot! Italian photographer Stefano Ferroni took these images for Jam Studio at the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. The cliffs have always been one of Ireland’s most photographed sites, but Ferroni’s choice of black and white gives the cliffs a magnificently moody feel. Looking at the brave model perched on the cliff’s edge reminds us just how high the cliffs are – 650ft to be exact.

Kerry Fashion Week 2013

These shots for Kerry’s fashion week could have easily joined Leibovitz’s ones as they use the same stormy scenery. They were taken in Killarney, a particularly photogenic region in the county with its deep lakes, enormous mountains and endless lush greenery. Barry Murphy Photography shot the images and the designs featured are by up-and-coming local designers who showcase their work during the annual fashion week.

Powerscourt House and Gardens

What bride wouldn’t want to have her wedding in this romantic Palladian mansion in County Wicklow? You can just imagine this young couple having their first dance in the 13th century ballroom. This shoot was styled by Pearl and Godiva and Christina Brosnan was the photographer in question.

In the wild West

Last but not least is this amazing shot on Carraig na Finise on Inis Óirr (Inisheer), the smallest of the Aran Islands. Behind the model is the wreck of the cargo vessel “Plassey” which was shipwrecked in the 1960s.
