Teenager has lofty ambitions after launching clothing brand during lockdown

Pierce wears the MUROK brand at Titanic Belfast

AN entrepreneurial Belfast teenager, furloughed from his role as a barber during the pandemic, has created his own unique clothing brand.

And although Pierce Carbery (18) is now back cutting hair at Manshack Rossetta, he has been able to continue his dream of building what has already become a hugely successful clothing brand MUROK.

An individual with drive and determination, Pierce created MUROK primarily to make sales to friends and family, but it has gone way beyond that already, with his range of products gaining wider acclaim.

“Through the creation of MUROK, I wanted to provide high quality, fashionable clothing at an affordable price, and during lockdown I spent the vast majority of my time researching materials, creating products, and doing personalised photo shoots.

“Since returning to work, I have had almost no free time, through my own choice,” Pierce said.

“I work as a barber from 10am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, and from 6pm until midnight I work solely on the brand, devoting time to photo shoots and promotion on Facebook and on Instagram at @Murok_Clothing.”

He added: “I'm dedicated to taking this brand to the very top.”
