Fashion Knitwear and Textile Graduates of Limerick School of Art and Design showcase 13 collections in their first ever Graduate Show

Limerick School of Art and Design’s Inaugural Fashion Knitwear and Textile Graduate show saw 13 collections on display to a packed house to raise funds for Limerick Suicide Watch.

Introduced just four years ago, this year sees the first ever group of students to graduate with a BA in Fashion Knitwear and Textile Design. The show was produced by the students of LSAD and LIT Clonmel, working together ensuring the first ever FKT Graduate Show was characterised by energy and edge. Digital Animation Production and Creative Multimedia students made their mark in this fashion debut accompanying each of the 13 designer’s unique collection with incredible graphics and animation.

Fashion Knitwear and Textile Programme Leader Mairead Neil, says, “The FKT class of 2017 are true innovators who are unafraid to push the boundaries of knitwear planting this craft firmly in the 21st century. Traditional techniques such as machine knitting, crochet, macramé, embroidery, and needle-felting along with Shima knit technology were explored and incorporated into their work creating a vibrant show full of colour, texture and contemporary fashion bringing cutting-edge Fashion Knitwear and textile design back to Limerick City!”
