Last August, I happened to step into an old graveyard, nearby Lahinch on the West coast of Ireland. Every grave on that yard, was covered with old fabric flowers, plastic crosses and Holy Marys. The flowers looked as dead as the people underneath them. It was stunning. The colours were pale, the fabric almost disintegrated, people had been caring but then slowly forgetting.
This inspired me to what I am doing for my final year collection and last weekend I made lots and lots of flowers.
This is an interview I did for the latest Metro Eireann. Tolu Omoyele is asking me about fashion, style and my greatest achievement so far. Read the text-only version here: http://metroeireann.com/article/mikas-fashion-explosion,3652
