The Spring/Summer 2014 collection by Sorcha O’Raghallaigh is loaded with religious iconography. For the collection O’Raghallaigh was inspired by the works of Alfred Gilbert, an English sculptor during the Victorian era. O’Raghallaigh’s fashion collection beautifully captures the same balance of melancholy and romanticism of his religious sculptures.

One of the most noticeable parts of the 'Forget Me Not' collection is the elaborate headpieces and adornments. These pieces have an unusual texture, but they’re made from a fairly conventional material—thousands upon thousands of safety pins. The weighty metallic accessories are show-stoppingly beautiful, but they are prevented from overpowering the entire collection by being balanced out by airy tulle overlays and skirts. With a collection as gorgeous as this, it’s no surprise that Lady Gaga is among one of O’Raghallaigh’s private clients. Stats for Romantic Iconographic Collections Trending: Older & Warm
