Úna Burke is the well deserved winner of the London College of Fashion’s Off-Catwalk Award for the Best Design Collection and a finalist in the Accessories Category of the International Fashion Competition for her restrictive collection Re. Treat.
Carcass-like in form, each piece is hand crafted from vegetable tanned leather, resulting in a colour indicative of human flesh. They have been produced to be viewed as contemplation artefacts observed in the environment of the gallery and they can be used as fashion accessories when broken down into sections, such as arm pieces, leg pieces, head or neck pieces and shoulder pieces. They could be combined with other garments in flowing fabrics which would create beautiful contrasts with the structured forms of these pieces.
