19th July 2018

Venezuelan director Luis Noguera travelled to Dublin to learn English but graduated with an Irish husband, colourful creative type Ciarán Gildea, three years later.

The grooms' on-point outfits on their wedding day were a vivid clue to their future, developing the vintage, upcylced clothing brand P.Shirts.

The P standing for pichi, the word the couple use to describe themselves and the name of their joint Instagram account.

While honeymooning in Berlin the couple raided vintage stores for ‘80s short-sleeved shirts which became a hit after appearing on their gay-positive social media accounts.

Now the couple face the future as husband and husband and stylish business partners.
