First established in 1849 as a haberdashers and general drapers on Grafton Street, Brown Thomas has morphed into the go-to place for style and class in Dublin’s city centre.
The collection includes both haute couture wear and more pret-à-porter numbers from designers such as Chanel, Valentino, Vera Wang, Paul Smith, Jimmy Choo, Hugo Boss and many more. Nearby BT2 caters to a younger clientele and includes services like a nail bar and Ireland’s largest denim bar for those with an obsession with finding the perfect jeans.
The beauty counters in Brown Thomas are always packed, and if you’re in Dublin for an event, there is no better place to get your make up done before swanning off to a special occasion. There are often make-up technique events booked with companies like MAC, so you can perfect your skills for future use. For the men, there is also a barber and a tailor so they can get as spruced up and well fitted as the ladies. If it’s a luxurious experience you’re after, then look no further than this lovely store; it offers that touch of class that we all need sometimes.
