Dublin native Róisín Pierce is a young Irish designer whose artisan garments - reminiscent of sugary, whipped delectability, evoke ethereal visions and epitomise the genius of fabric manipulation. A textile graduate from NCAD, Pierce is environmentally conscious, implementing ‘zero-waste’ techniques in the construction of all her pieces. Her collections are indicative of Ireland's historical demonisation of female sexuality. In using an icy colour palette for her creations, Pierce’s work literally embodies purity and innocence - the expectations insisted upon by an ultra-religious Ireland. For the designer’s first collection Mná I Bhláth (Women in Bloom), she was awarded the prestigious Chanel Métiers d’Art design accolade, and the Prix du Public at the 34th Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival in 2019. Her subsequent collections Bláthanna Fiáin (Wild Flowers) and Two for Joy have further attracted the attention of the international fashion industry.
