Deb Fanning Millinery and Emma Synnott Photography present ‘TIL DEATH DO US PART.
For one night only, Deb Fanning and Emma Synnott will present their very first joint exhibition ‘Til Death do us Part, taking place at Crow Street, Temple Bar on November 1st 2019, from 6pm.
Deb Fanning is an award nominated Irish Milliner who just recently had pieces on sale in Brown Thomas in the lead up to the Galway Races Summer Festival. Emma Synnott is a well established Irish Photographer with a huge interest in exploring editorial fashion photography.
Over the last year we have been working towards this very personal exhibition to showcase a collective piece of work. Having both lost our Dad’s over the last 18 months, we became a huge support system for each other through the unique journey of meandering grief.
We decided to work on a project together that would help us to express our grief, and using our creative abilities, focus on opening and normalising a healthy conversation around grief.
The exhibition will display a brand new 12 piece collection from Deb under the theme ‘Til Death do us Part’ - including 6 white and 6 black hats and headpieces.
Emma will display photographs taken of the collection on the night, shot in editorial style, a new style for Emma to choose, alongside the actual pieces made by Deb for this joint exhibition.
November 1st is 'Day of the Dead’ - a holiday which involves family and friends gathering to remember friends and family members who have died, and to help support their spiritual journey.
In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle.
Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration.
We want to encourage continuing this conversation as something that is healthy and part of life.
On the Night:
This exhibition is FREE OF CHARGE, however, donations would be greatly appreciated to support both the Brain Tumour Ireland and Irish Heart Foundation charities.
The venue has a full bar and we will provide snacks and nibbles for attendees on the night.
