Now in its seventh year, CREATE has become established as the launchpad for new and existing Irish designers to gain vital commercial retail experience and to showcase their work amongst the most luxurious brands in the world.
"CREATE has always been about being really focused on finding and developing talent. I love identifying unique design or finding the student with the most potential graduating from NCAD. The idea is that by being consistent and present, giving them our vote of confidence that in five years' time one of these bright young things will be in the position to develop a full collection," says Shelly Corkery, BT Fashion Director.
This year's installation is a blend of new and established designers showcasing the exceptional work of 22 designers across ready-to-wear, accessories, scarves, jewellery, millinery and interiors curated by Brown Thomas Fashion Director Shelly Corkery.
Designers include Lainey Keogh, Úna Burke, Helen Cody, Michelle Kearns, Sinéad O'Dwyer, Ale Walsh, 31 Chapel Lane, Sarah Murphy and Laoise Carey amongst others.
CREATE 2017 runs from July 3rd until August 13th - Level 1, Brown Thomas, Dublin.
