NCAD FASHION, DUBLIN

FASHION&TEXTILE SHOW IN NCAD, DUBLIN

The aim of the School is to create a design culture engaged in an ongoing debate on all aspects of design, visual communication, fashion and craft; a culture that thrives on new ideas, new ways of doing things and new areas of exploration. We encourage our students to experiment and take risks in order to carve new aesthetic paths and make technical innovations within, and beyond, their design discipline. (source: click here)

 

 

JENNIFER REID

Poison Ivy

Research is driven by childhood memories and themes around civilisation versus nature. Contrasting structured silhouettes and playful tulle, my womenswear collection portrays what we usually view as a weakness becoming a strength.

 

ELLIE CONNOLLY

Passion in the Kitchen

A romantic ephemeral collection based on my parent’s relationship in their restaurant. Creative fabric manipulation techniques combined with an organic approach to garment construction are the main drives in my work.

NIAMH McTIERNAN

Shimmering Crowntails

My aim is to reflect the beauty of nature in the clothes that we wear. Shimmering Crowntails is an exploration of the reflective and refractive metallic surface qualities of fish. The challenge is to turn something old into something new, to create beautiful handcrafted unique, vintage garments with a contemporary look.

ANJA MAYE

Luv Club

Luv Club brings together two contrasting identities: traditional Croatian dress and the creativity instigated in a clubbing environment. I pay homage to the Licitar, a gift of love and use my personal documentation of clubs and parties to create a new identity. A celebration of love and party culture.

LAUREN GIBSON

Raithneach

In ancient Ireland, mythology and folklore were a fundamental part of the knowledge encompassing each tree. They were talismans, each with their own meanings, uses and stories. My work explores native Irish woodlands through the juxtaposition of each species recreated in cloth, with excerpts from the National Folklore Collection.

THE 9&50 FREAKSHOW – NCAD GRADUATES SHOW 2017

TEXTILE ART & ARTEFACT

National College of Art and Design, Graduate Exhibition, Dublin 2017

Coming into the room full of butterflies within a second I was under an impression that I was covered in them! Even though they were not flying it felt that they were. There was so much to look at, I felt excited as a child who is chasing butterflies on a hot summer day.

Like if I was dreaming one of my abstract dreams where I am feeling happy and hyper. Stimulated by images appearing in front of my eyes, knowing I would wake up in a good mood because of the mad, colourful dream. Even if it was hard to find a story and a connection between one artwork and another, all together it made a perfect sense. Freakshow is like a dream wrapped in a warm blanket of all shades of brown colour.

   

THE 9&50 FREAKSHOW

BY LAUREN HOEY

‘Surrounded by ideals of perfection, my interest lies in the feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt; resulting in fantasies of escape and evolution to compensate. Using a variety of mixed media and textile techniques, I explore and imagined a narrative that borrows from a dark but humorous aesthetic informed by a freak show of hybrid creatures. A celebration of the imperfect has resulted in an installation that takes a classroom as the stage for an eerie metamorphosis.’ says Lauren Hoey

Apologies for being dormant on Facebook. Here's a little clip of 1 out of 70 paper cut butterflies I've been working on. In total, the 70 butterflies took approx. 12 hours, 7 scalpel wounds, 3 tears and a dash of blood.
