Concrete Collar

Concrete Collar is an Irish blog recently started up by Ciana and Rebecca, two Dublin-based architecture students. Exploring how fashion and architecture meet, the two have held fashion shoots at a number of interesting spaces in Dublin, including Elm Park, the Poolbeg Lighthouse and the Point Village Centre, which is pictured here. Abandoned or empty spaces seem to crop up often, and each post gives a little information on the space - who designed it, its history and what its purpose was/is. I think some of the shots from Tessellate at the Point Village are the strongest, with their stripy prints and bold shapes complimenting the space brilliantly, and I'm looking forward to seeing their upcoming posts :)
