On Saturday, a group of students and professors from the UCD design department went to the UCD Leadership Giving Society Gala to represent the department and showcase our fashion textile design work. We showed experimental fashion pieces, textiles, and jewelry. The Gala was Kentucky Derby themed, so we wore headpieces that we made. Since I was displaying a collection of swimming-themed textiles, I also designed and sewed my dress with tiny beaded swimming symbols, and made my headpiece out of swimming goggle pieces.
