Commerciality versus creativity

Donegal fashion student's collection to be showcased

Letterkenny student Amy Scanlon will be among some of Ireland’s future fashion designers who will showcase their latest designs next month as part of the hotly anticipated Ulster University Graduate Fashion show.

A fashion favourite on the stylista’s schedule, the event will take place at the iconic Europa hotel in Belfast on 26 May, where final year students’ work will storm the catwalk displaying their unique style and individual vision. With some truly inspiring and creative pieces including knits, prints and jaw-dropping silhouettes in the mix, the students will no doubt wow the audiences.

Ahead of the event Amy said “From the conceptual idea in my head, to putting pen to paper and sketching a 5 piece collection, before uncountable and pain-staking hours knitting and at a sewing machine, it’s cathartic to come full circle as we prepare for our pieces to come alive on real life models, with creative hair and makeup to create a full fashion theatre experience. It brings the whole project full circle and it has certainly helped me learn the importance of things like commerciality versus creativity for example, so it is such a fantastic way to finish our degree and help launch our fashion careers.”

Student Amy will see her collection ‘Rue’ modelled on show presenter and producer Cathy Martin’s CMPR Models with hair perfectly styled by the inventive team at Andrew Mulvenna hair and beautiful makeup looks created by the talented artists at MNX Pro.
