A unique event enables glass artists and fashion designers from across the island to collaborate on the most surprising material you can wear – glass!

This exhibition of wearable glass is brought to NI craft audiences by the Glass Society of Ireland, in collaboration with The Council of Irish Fashion Designers, and will take place at Craft NI Gallery, Belfast. The show is aimed at addressing gender equality, diversity and inclusion through exploring glass as a wearable material for all.

The exhibition will feature 20 glass artists and fashion designers showing collaborative and individual pieces which include glass bags, millinery, dresses and jewellery.

The industry term “Glass Runway” refers to gender inequality which touches many arms of society. The GSoI and CIFD wish to encourage a dialog on inequality, diversity and inclusion by exploring themes through this exhibition inspiring new ideas and statement pieces in this exclusive collaboration. The exhibition is the first of its kind in Ireland and a first cross border collaboration between the two representative agencies.
