Hi, I’m Aoife! I’m 21 and come from Glencolmcille In Co. Donegal. My Final Year Project looks at the structures and textures of the protective layers within nature, with my research focused primarily on skin and bark. I’ve extracted the colours and intricate details of each and have combined them through textile applications, such as Print and Embroidery. The Fashion Collection which I’ve named “The Connection Between Us”, uses lightweight fabrics and gentle fabric manipulation, which displays a delicate and sophisticated tone and feel.
