Eimer and Veerle have long and extensive backgrounds in the film and costume industry.

Eimer is one of Ireland’s most established costume designers, having worked with directors from Neil Jordan, Jim Sheridan, Ken Loach and Reed Morano to actors such as Emma Thompson, Amy Adams, Brendan Gleeson, Mel Gibson and Jude Law.
Veerle is a highly accomplished costume practitioner and has worked on projects such as The Tudors and Riverdance. Veerle also managed and curated Joan Bergin’s costume collection in The Costume Mill, Dublin, where she also ran an in-house costume rental business.

Veerle and Eimer now work together on film projects and overseeing the growth of ICAP.


The Irish Costume Archive Project was initiated to collect, preserve and exhibit Ireland’s film and television design heritage and promote the collections by highlighting their importance as part of our national film culture. Currently the collections consist of costumes from iconic Irish film dating back to the late 1980s.
