About Margaret O'Leary
From a working farm in County Kerry, Ireland with no electricity, studying her mother knitting by the fire, Margaret took up the craft. After studying engineering in Limerick and continuing on into electronics, she quickly realized that her passion lay elsewhere. Immigrating to the United States in 1987, Margaret combined her love of fashion and her knitting skills and began to hand knit sweaters at night in her apartment. Taking her sweaters in a basket to local boutiques she began to get her wares to the people. In 1991, the people, namely Barneys New York came calling. Margaretís signature chenille sweater, a yarn she introduced in 1990, became the leverage she needed to get her first design studio. Now operating seven boutiques in California and Washington, with plans to expand eastward. Her collections can be found in over 800 boutiques across the United States and Canada. Having steadily built her reputation over the last 16 years at the nationís premier knitwear designer, and launching her younger, more daring line MOL, in 2004, Margaretís inspiration comes from a balanced lifestyle of company president, designer and full-time working mom with two sons.
