The Little Museum of Dublin unveils their newest exhibition – Ireland’s Fashion Radicals
If you’re looking to be cultured and broaden your knowledge of Irish greats, Ireland’s Fashion Radicals is a must see exhibition! Located in The Little Museum of Dublin the exhibition acknowledges the talented work of a small group of Irish fashion designers which led them to influence designs all around the world.
See first hand the original garments and designs from the 1950’s which took Irish fashion to the next level. The exhibition allows visitors to witness the stories of the designers who acted fearless and courageous in a time of poverty and misfortune in order to achieve greatness.
Regional Director for Debenhams Ireland, John Bebbington, said,
This exhibition not only highlights the impact Irish designers have had on the world of fashion, but also their importance in paving the way for future designers.
For the first time ever, designers such as Sybil Connolly, Irene Gilbert, Neillí Mulcahy and Clodagh Phibbs feature in the exhibition. The designs displayed cater to the tastes of everyone. Some of which you may even want in your wardrobe today!
As the exhibition curator Robert O’Byrne puts it,
From a ballgown worn in Buckingham Palace to pink lurex bell-bottoms worn to the disco, this show celebrates Irish design at its most innovative.
This show is presented by Debenhams in association with Persil, Magee, DoDublin, The Ireland Funds and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
It runs until the 25th of March 2018. General admission is €10 and €8 for students and senior citizens.
The Little Museum of Dublin is located at 15 St Stephen’s Green, on the north side of the square and is open seven days a week from 9.30am until 5.30pm.
