About Me

My photo
As a little girl I would make dresses out of pillow cases and colour them with crayola markers, spend hours scribbling shoes and dreamed of working in the fashion industry, not much has changed since then. Im studying at Limerick School of Art and Design which I love,in my third year of fashion design. My favourite designers at the moment are Haider Rick Owens, Hussein Chalayan,Iris Van Herpen,Stella McCartney,Steffie Christaens , Gareth Pugh and Anne Sophie Madsen (and the list goes on and on and on!). I am driven and excited about fashion and look forward to the future.

Knitting Nightmare!

 So it is 9:12 and I am dreading the day already I have a whole day of knit ahead. Now I thought I could get away with machine knitting, but thats not going to happen.FASHION STUDENTS NEED TO KNOW HOW TO HANDKNIT. The only thought to keep me going is the idea that maybe, just maybe one day I'll knit like Sandra Backlund (I said maybe). So in through the bunny hole around the oak tree, out through the bla bla bla bla!

Kate Cusack Jewelery/ Costume Designer

I am not normally the girl who likes jewelery made out of buttons or zips or ribbons, however looking at these unique and very special pieces I would wear one any day!! I was thinking about zips for my ranking project and the theme enclosure. In love the necklaces : )
Ohhhh wow!!!
