SOMEthing in the water

 

Year 2, term 1, 2, 3.  Graduate project @ Dublin Institute of Design.

/

Task: To design and construct a three-piece capsule collection. 

/

Theme: SUSTAINABILITY.

/

My collection "Something in the water" is inspired by underwater photos of plastics floating in our Oceans alongside endangered marine creatures. 

/​

I'm using Econyl fabrics made from regenerated Ocean Plastic. 

/

I explored zero-waste pattern drafting techniques whilst making this collection and the Outfit no.1 is completely zero waste. 

 

 
Loved and upcycled

 

I make new things out of old ones. That's pretty much a magic...

/

Laptop cases and limited collections of bags & wallets handmade from

repurposed kites, sails, wetsuits, bike tubes and tents.

/

Remade in the North West of Ireland.

My collection "Myths about Moths" is inspired by a discrepancy in perception of the beauty of moths vs butterflies.

/

Materials used: neoprene, fishnet fabric (both purchased new), ripstop and ripstop offcuts (upcycled from postconsumer kitesurfing kites), repurposed studs (from an old damaged t-shirt)

 

 
all strings attached

Year 1, Term 1 @ Dublin Institute of Design.

/

Designing a 3 piece collection (without making). Learning visual research, sketching & design development. 

/

Theme: INTO THE WILD

/

Inspired by beaches, surf trips and ever-present plastic pollution. One half of all ocean plastic consists of discarded or lost fishing nets. These entangle sea creatures in their deadly grip.

All stings attached.
