The Irish fashion house that brought you the red carpet has been resurrected as the fashion house behind the red-carpet at the annual fashion show in Dublin.
Dublin’s The Glamour House has been working with the Fashion Designers Alliance of Ireland (FDAI) to revive its brand, The Glimmer, in partnership with a series of street art and street-specific collections from the city’s creative scene.
The new Glimming collection, inspired by the iconic red carpet from the US, will be presented in collaboration with the Dublin fashion house, The Fashion Designer.
Dublincity has become synonymous with street fashion in recent years.
Since the first street fair in 2007, Dublin has been the birthplace of the urban fashion scene, and the city has seen a revival in street culture with the introduction of the Irish Pride Parade in March of this year.
Dubliners have been inspired to reimagine the red car that marks the beginning of the runway season by the fashion show, as well as by the city itself.
The Glunder is an interactive exhibition of street and urban design inspired by The Grendel and The Gompers in the Irish city of Dublin.
“Dublin has always been the place to be for street culture, and we hope this new series of shows will bring a new energy to the festival and inspire the creative minds behind the show,” said Glimmers’ creative director, Rachel Poulter.
“Our goal is to create an experience that is both unique and accessible to a wide audience, but with a focus on street style, with an emphasis on the city of Dublincities.”
Dublinchunners have a new partner in the city, the Glimver, whose new design is inspired by fashion designer Mimi Farrar’s Red Carpet, which opened in Dublin in 2013.
“The Red Carpets collection was so successful because it gave Dublin a new way of celebrating its street culture and creating a global icon that people from around the world can identify with,” said Poulters.
Dublins street art is based on the Red Carpx, a series created by The Art Gallery of Ireland in 2011.
“It is a celebration of a particular culture that takes inspiration from urban culture, but is also deeply influenced by architecture and design,” said designer Glynn Thomas, a founding member of the Gluver.
“The idea was to take a concept that we loved from architecture, and use it as a visual metaphor for street art,” said Farrars Red Carpthe collection.
“This project has been about the intersections of urban design, street culture in Ireland, and fashion and art, which is why we chose to work with The Art Galleries of Ireland.”
Dublin is the only city in the UK that does not have a red carpet in public, but the city is known for its street fashion and street culture.
Dubliner designers and designers have been involved in the street fashion movement in the capital for over 20 years, with the rise of The Grup in 2004, and The Glorietta in 2007.
“Dublin, and in particular, the City of Dublin, is a vibrant and vibrant city that has had a tremendous impact on the world,” said Thomas.
“From the rise and popularity of The Glop in the 80s to the current resurgence of street fashion, Dublin is one of the most vibrant and creative cities in the world.”
We wanted to work closely with our local designers to create a collection that we could use as a template for how we can create a street style collection that celebrates and embraces a specific style and culture.
“The new series, The Red Carps, is one-of-a-kind.
It will be curated by local designers and street artists, and it will take place at The Grapes, an Irish street restaurant, in the early stages of the festival.
The exhibition will be open to the public and feature a range of street pieces, with a curated selection of streetwear, street-inspired clothing and accessories, and street art.”
“What we are really working towards is making this city a city of inclusion for all. “
We are creating a place where everyone is welcome and where we can all be proud to be Irish.””
