Roadmap: Beware Beware


Posted 12 months ago in Fashion

Róisín Pierce has been girl bossing the fashion world for a while now with her zero-waste creations.

Beware Beware was unveiled at Paris Fashion Week and sees Pierce revamping the rulebook on lace and crochet akin to what Lankum is doing with trad.

“Hyper-feminine gossamer-light organza dresses that bear her signatures: hand-smocked and crocheted flowers; bespoke floral embroideries reference Irish wildflowers like wild radish flowers and snowberries; deadstock bows; and intricate lacework made in collaboration with three generations of Irish lacemakers, all women, at her Dublin studio,” is how the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM) described her collection.

Pierce also references female heroines such as Sylvia Plath, Kate O’Brien and Edna O’Brien as inspiration for how she is seeking to retell the story of how femininity was challenged in Ireland through craft.
