I am a menswear designer with a unique vision on contemporary male fashion. I am passionate about reforming menswear into something bolder. During my time so far in Amsterdam I have developed and challenged my personal vision. My trademark style combines contemporary masculinity with bold sensuality.
The black cracked fabric after spray painting has been transformed into this white iridescent snake skin fabric. I wore the garment myself as I wanted to see it transform on me. The garment represents to me my own metamorphosis and personal development towards a bolder aesthetic.
This project is very personal to me. I wanted to show the world I grew up in, a rural part of Ireland. This project is an expression of my background and how I became the person I am today. Modern Ireland is still filled with many remnants of a bygone era. As a child I grew up in very unchanged surroundings. I wanted to capture this phenomenon in photography, to show how even today many aspects of daily life are still reminiscent of the past. I always felt different growing up and these photographs show how I tried to fit in but ultimately stood out from my surroundings.
