DIT Student Design Awards

Last night was the semi-final of the DIT Alfa Romeo Student Design Awards (the best competition for emerging Irish designers)

My Entry "For the Birds" was all beads and bling, and really sparkled on the catwalk. It told the tale of a broken heart, evil revenge and a curse on young love.

My outfit is heavily embellished, the jacket has been embroidered with elastic to create a feathered effect, then hand beaded to achieve the exciting and detailed finish and the dress underneath has also been embellished by hand. The silhouette of the dress imitates that of a bird... even the shoes were inspired by birds talons!!
