John Carey

Founder and Creative Director

Our History

John Carey Design began in January 2018 when World renowned Irish Dancer/Choreographer and teacher John Carey purchased the costume business formally known as Siopa Rince Teoranta. John’s Knowledge of the industry, creativity, sense of style and status have meant that The “John Carey Design” brand has already become a market leader.

Our Approach

Every dancer is an individual and what suits one dancer will not necessarily suit another. All of our creations are completely individual and no two are alike. We can work to your specific instructions or if you prefer we can design something that we think will be perfect for you, building every detail to suit your body shape, dance style and personality, a completely bespoke experience.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make the dancer look and feel their absolute best in the heat of the competition. We aim to make the whole process an experience to remember, from the first point of contact, through the design process, measurements, fitting and delivery. All of our friendly staff are on hand to make the experience enjoyable for all.

Our History

Siopa Rince was founded in 1996 by Phoebe O’Donoghue, they were world famous for creating unique costumes of a very high quality. When John Carey Design took over, an injection of new and fresh design ideas coupled with the 20 years of experience of the staff made it the perfect match.
