The collection entitled ‘Neuro’ is a reference to the neurons in the brain, which relates to my collection's theme of mental health and early mental health institutions. My design process was initially inspired by the treatment of mental health in institutions in Ireland from the mid 50’s to the late 80’s. I considered the uniforms of their caregivers and the environment the patients were mistreated in and imprisoned by. The aim of my collection is to design garments that support a fuller figure, are practical yet with elements of flamboyancy. I believe the fuller figure is not adequately catered for and is underserved by the fashion industry with regards to supportive cuts that accentuate the curves of the body. I incorporated draping techniques that were explained as part of the Alexander McQueen exhibition I visited in London. The draped puff of fabric accentuates the curves against the deep waistband and figure-hugging hip shaping. I used recycled polyester fabrics, pre-loved garments and deadstock fabrics to give the range a sustainable focus. The range is intended to be multi-versatile with options to mix and match each of the pieces to suit different looks and occasions.
