Sorcha O’Raghallaigh: Avant-garde Safety Pins

“Creativity is intelligence having fun”

Sorcha O'Raghallaigh_5_a

It is not the first time an artist looks at an ordinary article and sees something else, has a vision that translates into something memorable, remarkable. Yesterday I was talking about inspiration, vision, going passed the obvious. It makes sense that today the post is inspired as well.

Sorcha O Raghallaigh looked at a safety-pin and had a vision. This was it.

Within a year of graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2010, Sorcha went about setting up her label Sorcha O Raghallaigh.

Sorcha designs and creates a small avant-garde collection each season. With a large focus on handmade pieces, Sorcha mainly works with private clients to create bespoke pieces. Her work has been featured in elite fashion publications such as Vogue, Vogue Italia, Vogue Homme Japan, LOVE, Dazed and Confused, 10, i-D, Tank, and more.

Sorcha was also selected by Selfridge’s in 2012 as part of their Bright Young Things project in which she created a window installation for their Oxford Street store and her SS12 collection was sold in-store. Sorcha continues to work form her East London studio and also regularly hosts fashion illustration workshops in Dublin and London . (from SO’R official page)
