Kildare Designer Fionnuala Bourke and her range of masks
Aileen Gaskin writes:
Kildare native, Fionnuala Bourke, better known for designing costumes for international dancers, pole dancers and WWE stars, has turned her hand to designing face masks alongside her father, a fire engineer, and a team of sewers.
Three weeks ago the father and daughter designed a unique style of mask, with adjustable straps, after Fionnuala decided that she could help people in her area and turn her design studio into a mask making factory.
In the last three weeks, over 2,000 euro has been donated to Fionnuala’s GoFundMe page.
To date, they have made roughly 1,000 masks in four different washable styles. All of the non-medical masks are currently being donated all over the country by a team of volunteers.
Fionnuala has filmed a sewing tutorial to anyone who wants to sew their own masks. See @fibourkedesign.
