Goddess and Swift

On my return of NYC I interned with Goddess and Swift a Belfast based brand from March until the end of May.  Larissa Watson the chief designer and my mentor has over twenty years experience in textile design and development so it was good to work with someone with such a wealth of experience and expertise.  Goddess and Swift is Larissa’s brand name and her team designs and produces quality clothing that is both classical and creative with timeless appeal evident in statement prints and elegant lines.  Larissa is currently working on her third season, and launching a new M/W range.  On my internship I was initially working mainly on PR and press work.  I then assisted with the Photo shoot for A/W 12/13 Look book, styling and dressing the models.  I also assisted production and pattern cutting garments for the El Divino Fashion ‘Walking  on Water’ event El Divino ‘Walking on Water’ event boasted a 150 foot floating catwalk stretching into the middle of the lagan, the first ever show to be held on the river lagan.  The after party featured Henry Holland World renowned DJ and fashion designer, House of Holland. It was indeed an awesome experience.  Here are a few of Goddess and Swift's key looks for A/W 12.          http://www.goddessandswift.com/
