Sinead Gorey, born and bred in South East London and a recent graduate from the reputable London College of Fashion Womenswear course.
She has had her garments worn by relevant figures such as Jorja Smith, Zara Larson, Tiffany Calver, JGrey, Nilufer Yanya, Mira May and more. Her most recent collection is a nostalgic nod to her years of growing up around the London squat raving scene, creating garments for the new age matured raver.
‘’Due to technological advances, the squat party scene is suffering. Police are able to tap into the communication line and shut off a party before it has even begun’’ Through her branding, she brings together fashion and futuristic rave culture. Focusing on designing functionally for a cult of ravers who are innovative in the way that they think in the current political climate.
SS20 revolves around sexual empowerment, spiritual fulfilment, technical fabrications and nostalgic elevation.A bold silhouette inspired by the asymmetric psychedelic décor that domes over illegal forest parties, combined with functional elements designed for an active lifestyle.Vivid optical prints made from original images of stretch décor, digitally printed onto breathable Lycra. Secret stash pockets within the seams of a feminine bustier corded like a backpack down the front. A classic tailored blazer, made in technical nylon fabrications with a utility sleeve of multiple pockets and invisible zips.
Working alongside an artist who creates the décor for the raves that she attends, to inform asymmetric and interesting pattern cutting techniques, which are evident in the silhouettes of the irregular garments made from the same fabrications used to create the interesting décor. She creates her signature by adding function to these garments using interesting pockets, drawstrings, stretches binding and zips. See below, images from her most recent SS20 presentation.
