Barry McCall Photographer_Photography_Fashion_Samsung

Samsung Young Designer of the Year 2013

A couple of months back I was asked to join the panel to judge Samsung's Young Designer of the Year competition for Dublin Fashion Festival 2013, and subsequently photograph the winning piece During the judging, as soon as I saw the winning design and how sculptural it is - almost like a piece of art - I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I lit the shot to really bring out the detail and the organic shape of the piece. It was great to work with a new and exciting designer and we wish Claire Lynam all the best going forward. I'm sure we'll be working with her again in the future!
