Coláiste Ide staff had the pleasure of attending this years Griffith College Fashion Show last week. The exclusive Salon style event was very impressive and attended by well know names in Irish Fashion.
Expertise in construction and finish was evident throughout the fashion show as Griffith College Staff and students showed examples of the highest standards of design, skill and creativity. Our congratulations to all who were involved in the show on a job well done!
We had the pleasure of catching up with several of our past graduates who are now at different stages of studying for a Fashion Degree at Griffith College. Ciara Mc Garry (above) who has just completed her first year in Griffith College was working behind the scenes at the Fashion Show which featured the results of her first year dress project.
Second years Emma Collopy, Amy Carty, Lamis Gouma pictured above all presented impressive collections representing their years work. Margaret Salisbury who gained direct entry to second year after completing her Fashion and Textiles Portfolio Preparation Course in Coláiste Ide last June also showed her 2nd year collection, pictured below.
Final year student Chelsea Bonus, who also gaining direct entry to second year 2011 showcased her final collection at last Wednesday’s event.
Chelsea’s designs showed the influence of nature in subdued mystical colours and featured details panels of intricate stitch which she made with soluble fabric.
Garment construction is only one of Chelsea’s skills and she is already making a name for herself in Fashion Illustration. Her images are beautifully rendered and highly skilled and have yielded work for London Fashion Week and on line publications.
