Annie Leona: ‘LORE’

Featured Image

 

Showcasing the latest work of fashion designer Annie Leona, Lore is a collection of linen pieces inspired by Irish landscapes, time and folklore. With an ethereal quality that conjures visions of a magical, mythical time, Annie’s creations celebrate beauty, heritage and tradition.

Growing up in County Armagh, Annie Leona learnt how important and significant the area was to our once rich linen industry.  Today, paying homage to traditions of yesteryear, Annie breathes new life into heritage techniques and fabrics through her contemporary vision.

Dedicated to creating unique and ethical clothing, Annie follows a make-to-order model, ensuring minimal waste and impact on the environment. One of the oldest fabrics, linen is considered a very sustainable fabric to manufacture. Its durable and robust qualities stand the test of time, one of the reasons for Annie’s use of vintage linens which she often combines with antique lace to create her one-of-a-kind pieces.

To coincide with the exhibition, Annie will be hosting a workshop on Saturday 31 August; Embellished Linen Purse. All details can be found online at www.islandartscentre.com.

To open the exhibition and kick start August Craft Month, we will be holding a special exhibition preview on Saturday 3 August, 2-4pm. All Welcome.
