Second Skin posed a challenge to four Irish fashion labels - Jennifer Rothwell, Joanne Hynes, NATALIEBCOLEMAN and Lennon Courtney - to design, source and produce a garment or range of clothing on the island of Ireland and to document the opportunities and challenges in doing so.

Each designer arguably distinguished themselves through their use and interpretation of natural materials and indigenous craft and production techniques. We endeavoured to capture some this with the series of unique invites and anouncements produced for the show.

Printed in 6 colours on 70gsm paper, creased; folded; foiled; and die cut; these basic interventions in print reflected the materials and techniques employed by the fashion designers with their garments.
