Coláiste Bride, Enniscorthy
Inspired by Elizabethan fashion, ‘Viridian Queen’ is a modern take on the glamorous attire worn by royals of the court. Using a detailed macramé stich woven with pearls, and taking an endless amount of hours to construct, the dress and cape use over 1000m of jut twine, as well as garden fleece, both sourced from gardeners and garden centres, EPE foam collected from furniture stores, broken jewellery, an old corset and worn boots. With a skirt and sleeves designed from
scratch, together the materials create an elaborate design reminiscent of monarchs of the past.
