Unit­ed Fash­ion event: Lille 2019

Four Threads, cre­at­ed by Alanagh Clegg dur­ing her Grad­u­ate year in The Nation­al Col­lege of Art and Design, Dublin. Inspired by a fam­i­ly busi­ness of hand­craft­ing, her work explores the tra­di­tions of these tech­niques that have been passed down through gen­er­a­tions. Using eth­i­cal­ly sourced fab­rics from local Irish Linen to hand­wo­ven Indi­an kha­di’ cot­ton, the cloth used cel­e­brates their her­itage of craft­ed tex­tiles. The col­lec­tion has been curat­ed over time through a num­ber of time­less gar­ments which are made to be lived in and loved for a life­time. Each piece fea­tured is made to order in the stu­dio, hand­craft­ed by Alanagh. New designs are grad­u­al­ly added with addi­tions to fab­ric choic­es; includ­ing spe­cial projects cre­at­ing lim­it­ed edi­tion gar­ments work­ing with arti­san mak­ers in India.
