Roisin Dubh angelic printed denim midi skirt, 2003

Charlotte Smith bought this graphic denim midi skirt from Roisin Dubh's boutique in Eden Terrace, earlier situated on Karangahape Rd. This skirt is from the collection that was shown on the runway at L’Oreal NZFW 2003, and features a take on a spiritual icon, in this instance, an angel in a scene in the style of those seen in Sandro Botticelli's paintings, depicted as a young boy with wings. 

The golden screen print on a dark blue denim ground is juxtaposed with a bright green yoke with a black scrolling celtic motif, another of Roisin Dubh's signatures. A high split up the centre back allows movement in an otherwise structured and narrow A line cut. A small content of stretch in the denim also allows for a close fit.
