THE PERFECT MATCH
Coláiste Bride, Enniscorthy
1500 used matches were collected and arranged in snowflake and square designs to create the top of this dress and our shoes. Bags of straw were gathered from a farm and were sorted, each strand was individually curled and hand-sewn onto the skirt and shoulders. For the headpiece matchboxes were sprayed and glued, raising awareness of fire safety ’Fire catches, so don’t play with matches.
