The Theia collection was created to bring out a woman’s inner goddess. The goddess Theia, who ruled during the Greek golden age, inspires the collection. Her power was the gift of light: all that she gazed upon glittered, becoming luminous and radiant.
Clothing from Don O’Neill’s Theia collection is fabricated with the finest European brocades, silks, and prints, embellished with couture beading and embroideries. Each piece is meticulously stitched together to create exquisite gowns and cocktail dresses that flow beautifully around the body. The woman who wears Theia will be filled with confidence, knowing her dress fits wonderfully and looks beautiful, thus naturally allowing her inner Goddess to shine.
Don O’Neill, known for his elegant and sophisticated evening wear, was born in a small village in the west of Ireland. From an early age, his mother and her clothing inspired him with her elegant Bergdorf Goodman dresses and Ib Jorgensen couture suites. This inspiration fueled his dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
Today, Don serves as the creative director for Theia. The collection is a manifestation of Don’s vision to bring out every woman’s inner Goddess. The collection opened for Fall 2009 to rave reviews, immediately being bought by Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and specialty stores around the globe. The designs have also garnered praise by country superstar Carrie Underwood, as well as media outlets such as People Magazine, Life & Style, US Weekly, E! News, InStyle.com, Glamour.com, and more.
