Bewley’s Café in Grafton street is one of Dublin’s most celebrated landmarks. In 2014 this café closed its doors but was re-opened more recently by its new owners Paddy and Veronica Campbell, following a multi-million-euro refurbishment. The historic cafe is now bigger and brighter than ever and aims to provide a better customer experience than ever before.
Tailored Image was contracted to design, manufacture and supply a uniform for the café staff that would be in keeping with this new bright, fresh approach to the cafe culture of Ireland’s capital city.
The brief was to design a café uniform with a modern twist, that did not look out of place in this historic building of such architectural significance. Great care had been taken during the restoration process to retain its historic front facade, Harry Clarke stained glass windows and its open fireplaces and the approach to uniform design must be in keeping with this sensitive restoration.
Working with Dublin fashion designer Therese McKeone, Tailored Image produced a range of new café staff uniforms for the entire team, from the waiting staff to baristas and managers who provide impeccable service to customers. The range of café uniform designs included bespoke patterned fabric blouses for the female managers with a matching fabric tie for the male managers, as well as distinctively striped tops and long aprons for the barista staff.
