I’m Eileen & I am the Dallas-based designer behind the brand Eileen Isle. A love of fashion and design has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. One of my grandfathers founded the Cain-Sloan Co. department store (known as “the greatest store in the Central South”) and my other grandfather was an artist. One of my grandmothers was a fashionable socialite, and the other was a happy-go-lucky dreamer with a “shoot for the moon” attitude. Their influences played a big role in my life and sparked the passion for all things fashion, travel, and design-related. After several years of working in the fashion industry as a high fashion photo shoot coordinator for a major luxury retailer, I decided it was time to chase my dreams! So here we are.
Eileen Isle is a line of handmade jewelry inspired by the sea and the colorful culture of the islands. Traveling to beaches throughout different parts of the world has had a tremendous influence on the Eileen Isle line. From the clear turquoise waters and hot pink bougainvillea of the Caribbean, to schools of neon yellow fish and black sandy beaches of Hawaii, the beauty of the earth is endlessly inspiring. Celebrating that beauty is what Eileen Isle is all about.
