Conversations with Designers
The Council of Irish Fashion Designers in association with the Hunt Museum and Anthology Magazine will host ‘Conversations with Designers’ at the Hunt Museum Gallery from 6pm on Thursday 11th. May 2023 in support of the restoration and preservation of the Sybil Connolly Archive at the museum.
The inaugural event will feature designers Amy Anderson (Kindred of Ireland), Helen Hayes, Hazel Green, Carolyn O’Sullivan (Not Another White Dress) and Anthology editor Edel Cassidy in conversation with Eddie Shanahan on matters of design, craftsmanship, the business of fashion and the legacy of Ireland’s legendary designer Sybil Connolly.
The event will also include an informal fashion show featuring work by the 4 designers.
The event will give a unique perspective on the importance of Sybil Connolly and the Archive as well as insight into the backstories of four innovative Irish designers and how they research and create their collections.
There will be opportunities for audience engagement during the Conversation and also to meet three other Limerick based members of the Council of Irish Fashion Designers – Ejay Griffin, Caroline Mitchell and Linda Wilson.
