'Now and Then' Fashion Event May 2016

"Now and Then" Fashion Event

For the Fashion Event I designed and created a self-referential collection of three paired coats and dresses that documented my journey as a student in NCAD. Each pair denotes one academic year.

By using varying degrees of one pattern, I made the coats from cotton-organdy, using the organdy for its architectural qualities. The coats increase in size as the year’s progress and are further differentiated by pockets embellished with machine stitched text that can be interpreted as ‘pockets of memories’.

The viscose jersey dresses are individually designed and digitally printed, created from a selection of my own artwork which I like to think echo’s my aesthetic and personality. As with the coats the dresses become longer with each passing year.
