About Our Founder

About the Founder: Introducing Urata – The Creative Soul behind Urata Designs

Welcome to Urata Designs, a haven for bespoke dressmaking and exceptional craftsmanship, brought to life by our founder Urata’s enduring passion for the art. Born in 1968, Urata grew up as the youngest member of a family with a rich dressmaking legacy. Her parents and grandparents, all highly skilled in the craft, nurtured her innate love for creating exquisite garments.


Even after her father’s wartime injury left him with one hand, he remained a guiding light, imparting his knowledge and expertise to Urata. At the tender age of 9, she began designing clothes for her dolls, and by 14, she had already garnered her first client. As her daughter Ruta entered the world, Urata pursued formal education in dressmaking, obtaining a diploma to further refine her skills.


In 2002, following a challenging period of adversity, including a robbery at her shop, Urata courageously relocated her family to Ireland. They settled in the picturesque city of Cork, where she swiftly learned English and captivated a loyal clientele with her remarkable talent.


Urata’s dream materialised on March 4th, 2012, when she opened the doors to her very own boutique, Urata Designs, in the charming town of Ballincollig. Since then, the boutique has blossomed into a cherished cornerstone of the community, with clients returning time after time for bespoke dressmaking and alterations.


As an active and involved founder, Urata continuously strives to innovate and evolve her brand. She takes immense pride in her longstanding relationships – from brides who entrust her with their wedding gown alterations to those who later seek her expertise in transforming their cherished dresses into christening and communion gowns.


Urata’s journey is a celebration of passion, determination, and an unwavering commitment to excellence. At Urata Designs, she leads by example, offering impeccable craftsmanship and an elegant experience to every client who graces the boutique.
