Sybil Connolly Exhibition - Hunt Museum

2nd  Year  Fashion  students  will  attend  a  lecture  on  the  work  of  1950's Irish  Fashion  Icon  Sybil  Connolly  on   Friday  the  15th  at  the  Hunt  Museum.



The name Sybil Connolly returned to the fashion press recently when actress Gillian Anderson turned up to the annual Bafta Awards wearing a vintage 1950′s pleated handkerchief linen dress.  One of the Irish designers most famous innovations – uncrushable linen – was a fashion sensation in the late 1950′s.
