Sancta Maria College, Louisburgh

Design Description

Our dress embodies recycled sporting equipment, namely damaged shuttlecocks and broken swim goggles. Speedo and our local badminton club were happy to oblige in our search for materials. This had a dual benefit as much goes to waste once damaged. We manipulated the goggles to resemble colourful flowers. We then dyed the shuttlecocks vibrant colours adding them accordingly to match accessories. We thought this mirrored a garden full of vivid flowers. The silhouette was inspired by old Victorian fashion with a corset and a domed skirt. We added a modern twist by making the
skirt knee length.
