Irish Fashion Lable: We Are Islanders is a new Irish fashion label, using traditional Irish fabrics such as Beetle Finished Wexford Linen and Tipperary Wool incorporated with sustainable fabrics like Bamboo Silk and Salmon Leather Skin. The label challenges the concept of heritage, merging the old and the new while fusing art and fashion.
The Autumn/Winter 2013 'Tidal' collection brings a contemporary twist on traditional Irish materials through signature details of quilting, cording, binding and hand printing. There’re some pieces in the collection that were dyed by the high tide on Sandymount Strand during the instillation 4/704 as part of Dublin Fringe.
Collection designed by Rosie O’ Reilly
