The winner of the Brown Thomas x NCAD Designer to Watch bursary designed a sustainable led fashion collection which follows the principle of 'clothing for life'. 

Inspired by nesting dolls, NCAD graduate Ala Sinkevich's collection Existential Nomad won her a €4,000 bursary, an installation at Brown Thomas, Dublin in July 2018 and a mentoring programme with the management team at Brown Thomas. Sinkevich was awarded the prize for her sustainable collection, which showcased a hand-felted coat layered over a hand-quilted linen caftan and nuno felted slip dress, by Brown Thomas Fashion Director Shelly Corkery.

Members of the public will be able to view the student's collections at the NCAD Graduate Exhibition, taking place from 9 to 17 June.
