Since exploding onto the scene in September 2008 and more recently his menswear collection closed London Fashion Week, JW Anderson has become one of the most celebrated talents to come out of Ireland. The poster child for raw, young design on the international fashion scene, Anderson flies the flag of home-grown talent and will display a one off capsule collection during the installation.
Making their mark last year, fashion designer Natalie B Coleman and milliner Mark T Burke will return for this year’s installation. Coleman who has recently established her own fashion label NatalieBColeman designs delicate wearable garments for women. All her illustrations are hand drawn; water coloured and digitally printed on silks, making the fabrics 100% unique and original. Burke has seen his star rise over the last two years since being named Accessory Designer of the Year at the Irish Fashion Innovation Awards 2010. Creating one off head pieces for this year’s Irish Designers CREATE, Burke marries textiles with the 3-D process, hence creating spectacular creations.
New talents this year include textiles designer Lisa Ryder knitwear designer Lisa Shawgi and fashion and knitwear designer Rebecca Marsden. Within a year of establishing her brand, Ryder won Fashion Innovation Awards Designer of the Year 2012 for her quirky designs and bold colour choices. Ryder will exclusively launch her latest AW12 collection ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, which focuses on the architectural landscapes of Paris and London at Irish Designers CREATE. In 2008, Shawgi launched her own knitwear label and produces unique, eye catching contemporary knitwear influenced by her time spent in Sudan as a child. Winner of the Limerick Institute of Technology Award for Innovative use of Materials 2012, Marsden’s work focuses largely on processes and fabric manipulation. Her most recent collection entitled cellular collision featured at the Volvo Ocean Race Design Collective in July 2012.
Completing the line-up for this year’s installation are accessory designer Lorna Burton, Accessories and fashion designer Riona Treacy and Rainbow Winters, who infuses technology into her designs. Recognised as a 'hybrid' designer, Burton believes the value of sustainability in the fashion world. Burton ensures sustainable fabrics, packaging, textiles and manufacturing are employed throughout her own fashion label Corallei. Starting her design career with world famous fashion house Alexander McQueen, Treacy’s designs were used in McQueens’s last ever collection, AW10. Riona’s simplistic aesthetics paired with complex processes and engineered print designs make her pieces conceptual, wearable and feminine.
