Blogging Marvellous

for the love of Aimee O'Beirne 6I love blogging, as is probably apparent. One thing I love about it, (among many) are the peaks and troughs of inspiration. People often ask me if I ever have trouble finding things to write about, but it’s on a very rare occasion that I get writer’s block. Fashion is so changeable and subjective that not only do I have dozens of opinions on it but there are thousands of other people writing about it too. There are dozens in Dublin alone; I was asked to have a look at this blog this morning and I was blown away by a post about a creative event at Filmbase last week. The event was called For the Love of Live (FTLO), where 9 ‘creatives’ were invited to create a one-off piece live at Filmbase on November 4th, turning the venue into a studio for the evening.

It was fashion designer Aimee O’Beirne’s work that was featured on said blog and caught my eye. She started with a pretty ivory-coloured, embellished shift dress and covered it in black paint as an audience watched on. The result was fantastic.

Aimee O’Beirne has been causing a stir over the last two years or so having been a finalist at the Nokia Young Fashion Designer of the Year 2007. She graduated from LCAD having won Bulmers Light Most Cutting Edge Award, at the LCAD fashion show in the same year.

I’m not sure what to look at here, the amazing sartorial-art or the uber stylishness of the designer herself. Loving those oversized specs and undercut.

I love the way the paint has run down the model’s arm, when I first saw it I thought it looked like ribbons that were part of the dress itself.
