A fashion exhibition “Ireland’s Fashion Radicals” opens in The Little Museum of Dublin on 25 January focusing on a small group of Irish fashion designers in the 1950s who found fame internationally. They include Sybil Connolly, Ireland’s first successful female entrepreneur, and Clodagh Kennedy, both of whom found success in the US along with others such as Irene Gilbert and Neillí Mulcahy who designed tweed uniforms for Aer Lingus and Ib Jorgensen, the latter the subject of a recent exhibition in Collins Barracks in Dublin.

Curated by Robert O’Byrne, the garments on show include a ballgown worn in Buckingham Palace and pink lurex bellbottoms worn to the disco, along with many original garments exhibited for the first time. Tickets from littlemuseum.ie/nav-action-button
