Our Lady's Bower Secondary School, Co. Westmeath
in 2020 the world of consumerism that we are all accustomed to collapsed and people started to become self-sufficient due to the fear of going out to the shops and mixing with other people. People started to grow their own crops instead of buying them. we decided to translate this into our dress by using natural materials and showing the contrast in this modern way of living by styling our dress after celebrities on a catwalk. Our performance was done in the style of a celebrity catwalk with a twist at the end to highlight how unique it is for a performer to design and make their own dress
Materials Used: due to COVID and lockdown, many restaurants were left with a huge amount of food that was going to be wasted. Seeing the amount of pea pods and peas that were going to be wasted inspired us to recycle them. Our local fruit and veg shop donated two bags of pea pods to us. We also noticed the amount of onion bags being dumped after one use. We used the red onion bags as red, and green are complimentary colours. we crocheted these bags for the skirt.
