The New Different
Coláiste Nano Nagle, Co. Limerick
Steam Punk is the inspiration behind this look, with a post-apocalyptic era in mind. The team created a look that asks, ‘What will the world look like post Covid’? The steampunk habit of buying in thrift shops and using trends from different historical periods helped this team create a futuristic and industrial look. Balenciaga influences the embellishments throughout the outfit.
Materials Used: Their uniform was used to help them with the pattern drafting. They adapted the patterns to create a victorian inspired ruffled top and straight-cut pants. The top is made from construction mesh, sprayed silver, and gathered, pleated, ruffled, and rushed sleeves. Recycled jewelry, lampshades, silver insulation, sweet wrappers, old belts/chains, and contact lens waste materials were used to create the detailing on the top.
