IN THE FOLD





‘In The Fold’ presents the new wave of creative minds redesigning the contemporary landscape of Irish fashion. Their shared minimal aesthetic is based on innovative approaches to the body and tailored construction.

Using the medium of fashion to question and respond to their indigenous environment, the quiet purity of of these designers and their collective output offers a restrained alternative to a society based on digital immediacy and speed.

By grounding the garments as focal points, the exhibition invites the viewer to step inside and observe their construction. This ‘slowing down’ of fashion and highlighting of the smaller craft details reveals the influence of cultural heritage and traditions on practice.

In The Fold is presented by Irish Design 2015, a year-long programme exploring, promoting and celebrating Irish design and designers in Ireland and internationally.
