Saraden Designs – Belfast Fashion Week – Press Release

Saraden Designs SS19 Collection – The White Collection

 Belfast Fashion Week March 29th 2019

Irish Milliner Sarah O’ Rourke of Saraden Designs will present her Millinery SS19 designs at Belfast Fashion Weeks 27th season on March 29th 2019 in St Anne’s Cathedral Belfast.

Sarah has created a 15 piece Millinery Collection called ‘The White Collection’. Saraden Designs is renowned for its handmade Saraden Fabric. Each design has incorporated this technique in various shades of white, with each piece of fabric constructed in house.

Sarah sculpts her fabrics into beautiful pieces creating wearable art. Not only has Sarah created a millinery collection she has also created a sleek and sophisticated collection of dresses to accompany her SS19 collection.

Sarah wanted to create not only Millinery pieces but to make pieces of wearable art that are eye catching and echo her sculptural background. Each piece has taken hundreds of hours from fabric making to construction to embellishment.

Embellishments are something which is a feature in this collection especially beadwork. Hours upon hours of intricate beading were done to finish each design with a common beaded ball featuring throughout the collection. These beaded balls really draw the eye and are a beautiful feature.

Sarah wanted to strip back her colour use in this collection. There are hints of colour throughout the designs using feathering, fabric dying and beading but the main body of each design has been kept white.

For Sarah’s final look of the night she has created a breath-taking bridal look combing some traditional bridal elements with her wearable art.
