“Polar Aurora” was the collection created at the end of Ailbhe’s third year of college. Based on the Polar Aurora (Northern Lights) the collection plays on weight proportion. Heavy shapes, created from layers of bonded fabric, hang from polyester stretch jersey. When worn, the shapes take on a movement of their own, much like the Northern Lights. The outer layer of fabric is a dark navy, and the inside a vibrant green. When in motion the viewer sees flashes of green that mimic the Polar Aurora.
