Ireland’s Fashion Radicals at the Little Museum of Dublin

This fascinating exhibition brings to light the Irish fashion designers – mainly women – who earned international recognition for their work in the 1950’s, amidst the backdrop of a dark and gloomy Dublin and Ireland. Designers like Sybil Connolly, with support of Harper’s Bazaar and American Vogue, brought Irish fashion to international attention – even Jackie Kennedy herself was wearing one of Connolly’s dresses when painted for her White House portrait! They made it to Paris, London and New York with impressive outcome and long-lasting effect.
