Design Description

“Unleash the Raven” is a response to the ever present idea that to succeed in sport a woman must sacrifice her femininity. The dress encourages women to unleash their hidden power by using the classic and very feminine ballgown. While she appears a demure, classic, feminine figure she unleashes her power using the silhouette to dominate her stage, supported by the words of the former Irish Rugby President Ian McIlrath, thus breaking the stigma around women in sports. The dress is inspired by the raven, a beautiful bird full of power, mystery and beauty allowing her to unleash her raven.
