The interest she expresses in the origin of her fabrics demonstrates a concern for traceability. This preoccupation is reflective of the way she grapples with her own Irish Catholic cultural inheritance. Her collection’s title, ‘The Irish Club’, refers to a night out with her godmother in an Irish club of Manchester, which inspired her to enquire into her family’s past. “You’re so nostalgic about it,” Talia beautifully analyses the feeling of displacement experienced by those who are descended from a culture they’ve not experienced. In September of last year, Talia finally visited Ireland, and her collection reads as a love letter to the rural, simple existence of Ireland in the early twentieth century.
