Don O'Neill (born 1966) is an Irish fashion designer. He was born in the seaside village of Ballyheigue, County Kerry, Ireland. Initially training as a chef, O’Neill was able to study to be a fashion designer, his true passion, after winning a full tuition scholarship to the Barbara Bourke College of Fashion Design. After traveling the world and working for famous designers and fashion houses such as Christian Lacroix, he arrived in New York, where spent ten years working with evening-wear designer Carmen Marc Valvo and three years as head of the Badgley Mischka diffusion label. In 2009, THEIA was launched. The collection is a manifestation of Don’s vision to bring out every woman’s inner goddess. O'Neill currently serves as the Creative Director[1] of the label.

He has dressed Carrie Underwood[2] at the 2013 Grammys and Oprah Winfrey[3] at the 2012 Oscars.
