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.

The Fabric Board

My entry for Gillette Dress of Your Dreams.

Greta Constantine

My Rick Owens for Zara project has mainly been inspired by cars, im currently looking at materials found in cars for inspiration (seatbelts, leathers, heavy duty woven fabrics with details such as top stitching) Im loving the project and cant wait to see the end result. I will upload pictures soon!!! Found this relativly new label and thought it was a perfect reference for my collection.
Greta Constantine is an accessible luxury line of ready-to-wear womenswear based in Toronto, Canada. Designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong. The label itself is derived from the combination of the name of Stephen's mother, Greta, with that of Kirk's grandfather, Constantine. The pair works together in their Toronto area studio -- conceptualizing, exploring, and challenging the fashions of today for the women of tomorrow.
