Encounter with Limerick School of Art and Design

Sarah Ryan
Last week FASHIONCLASH visited Limerick a small town in Ireland. FASHIONCLASH was invited to give a presentation to at  LSAD (Limerick school of Art & Design).
We really enjoyed this encounter with school that clearly shows potential.
We discovered interesting work from LSAD students and alumni.
There is loads of attention for textiles and materials. Designer Lorraine Dimond explains that she tries to be a s sustainable as possible.
"I also developed digital print and knit techniques both by hand and with Shima Seiki industrial knit patterns. Sustainable work ethics and sourcing are important within my collection, my main fabrics are pure wools, recycled polyesters and tencel." (Lorraine Dimond)

Sarah Ryan's impressive collection also shows interesting materials and textures inspired by the human body.
Limerick School of Art and Design Building
‘Corpus Fraterna’ is based on the notion of building a newly formed body from the inside out. Using my two brothers, both surgeons, as its beginning, the collection investigates contour and line with particular focus on inter-connectivity and the garments relativity to one another. The fusion of muscle to bone is illustrated using adverse textiles to create a new informed silhouette in achromatic black." (Sarah Ryan).
