Sybil Connolly Print - 'Firebrand'
Sybil Connolly was a Dublin-based fashion designer who was known for creating fashion from Irish textiles, including finely pleated linen, wools such as Báinín, Limerick and Carrickmacross lace, and later for her work with brands such as Tiffany & Co. Her fashion label's clients included Jacqueline Kennedy. These beautiful limited edition prints are from her sketchbook and have been printed on fine quality paper. This sketch in particular shows a full length skirt of panels with piping along the vertical seams. The collarless, fitted bodice has a round neckline and is buttoned down the front. The full length fitted sleeves are set in. The fabric of the skirt appears to be pleated linen.
The dimensions of the print are as follows:- Length 45cms. and Width 33cms.
All proceeds go to the conservation of our Sybil Connolly Collection.
