These photographs aim to tell the narrative of the collection titled, The Feral Women of the Innish Free, shot just before lockdown went in to place on the coast. Inspired by the tradition of female familial hierarchy, the garments draw upon three skirts I inherited from my Great-Grandmother that four generations of my family have worn. I aspire to make pieces that can similarly be passed down from generation to generation. At a time such as the present, this appears to be more important than ever to promote. All materials for the collection were sourced from discarded garments and paired with deadstock heritage tailoring fabrics from local mills near my hometown in Chesire, in the North of England.
