Caoimhe Dowling

This project is a reflection on how blue we felt as a society post-pandemic and how we could see opportunity in the cynicism and disillusionment to propel us towards greater change. I looked to historical movements such as The Kibbo Kift and The Punk Movement for inspiration on how we could craft our way out of the rubble and reconnect to old values we had lost. In the midst of a materialistic and disconnected society, I wanted to use nature and traditional craft processes to subvert the norm. I did this by distorting the sartorial codes around recognisable patterns such as traditional herringbone and broderie anglaise to reflect our contemporary context and dream up a more hopeful future.
