FIGHT THE FLAME
Sacred Heart Secondary School, Tullamore
Fight the Flame’ is inspired by the horrendous effects of flaming forest fires. To raise awareness of the devastating effect
that these have on the environment we created this dress out of fire hose. The patchwork skirt represents a view from the
helicopters as they spray the blazing land. The bodice’s circular form recreates the stored hose. The flowers resemble flora, forever obliterated as a result of the devastating fires. Our head piece is a symbol of the plume of clouds. We plaited, weaved, stitched, sewed and twisted more than two fire hoses together to create this sustainable dress.
