2012 RDS National Crafts Competition – Knitting & Crochet
Camelia Shanahan's entry for 2012 RDS National Crafts Competition, entitled "Romancing the Lace Collection – Peacock Walk" has been selected for exhibition at the RDS Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show from August 15th – 19th, 2012. The exhibition taking place in the RDS Concert Hall, Dublin, will be open to the public on Friday, 10th August.
Inspired by the exotic beauty of peacocks, Romancing the Lace Collection – “Peacock Walk” is a sleeveless dress with a fitted bodice. The design flares into a full skirt suggesting peacock’s fabulous plumage. It is hand crocheted in rayon in the traditional Irish method resembling the smoothness and high lustre of silk.
