The 1916 Commemoration festivities have not been forgotten by fashion design students at Dublin’s Griffith College.
Their Uniformity collection merges practicality of fabric with creativity of design in a touching tribute to the heroes of Ireland’s foremost female Independence fighters. Each piece celebrates the unique story of the twelve Cumann na mBan volunteers who were central to the Rising. Among those featured are Countess Markievicz, Jennie Wyse Power and Elizabeth O’Farrell, many of whom when on to prominent roles in the new Irish Free State. See the full collection in the windows of Arnotts, Henry Street Dublin 1, and appreciate the visual merchandising of a modern store paying tribute to a centenary of Irish history.
