The hottest new talent of the week brought to you by PSFK x Arts Thread. This week, a designer who combines crafts and print-making with high fashion.

PSFK’s Creative of the Week, chosen from the ARTS THREAD online portfolios, is Sinéad Lawlor, a recent MFA graduate of the Fashion Design and Society program at Parsons, New York whose work shows a sophisticated use of colour and pattern.

Why we like Sinéad’s work: Sinéad's work has a 3D depth to it through her mix of textures and patterns, yet the pieces have a lightness and elegance that makes them extremely wearable.

Tell us about yourself, your background and inspirations

I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. I've always been surrounded by art, fashion and craft as I grew up. My first involvement with fashion was probably seeing my grandmother make clothes and sew. My mother also loved to knit so as a child I remember winding yarn for her when she would make her knitwear to sell at craft fairs.
