About Us

Missy Bonkers was set up in May 2009 by Tina O’Rourke and Alan Fitzpatrick.

Initially as an upcycling initiative, Missy Bonkers created limited edition clothing designs using recycled and organic materials.

Since 2013 Missy Bonkers works exclusively on upcycling & redesign projects, creating an awareness of slow fashion that is both individual and unique, while also encouraging awareness of how clothing can be restyled to prolonging the lifespan of a garment, rather that disposing of it.

Tina is a register member of the Crafts Council of Ireland & CraftED


Missy Bonkers was set up to raise awareness of textile recycling and to advocate the idea of slow fashion.

To provide a service where clothing can be restyled to a high level of design and quality.

To actively provide training and awareness of how clothing and textiles can be restyled and reused.

To promote other designers working within the design and craft medium using recycled materials on our website.
