Irish DJ Yasmin Gardezi showed off her pride for her home county Kerry in when she played a Boiler Room event at Silo in Dublin's RDS on October 29.

“38 All Irelands and a Boiler Room,” Gardezi, a native of Tralee, said on social media, sharing pictures from the gig where she wore a Kerry GAA top that was upcycled into a corset.

In another post highlighting her hour-long set, Gardezi quipped: “The first Kerry Jersey to win an all Ireland and play a Boiler Room.”

Gardezi, still wearing her Kerry GAA top corset, also shared a clip of excitedly waving an Irish flag during her big Boiler Room gig:

The new take on a Kerry GAA top was curated by Dillon Quinn, an Irish fashion designer who uses up-cycled fabrics for his pieces.

Quinn told IrishCentral that he “jumped at the chance” when Gardezi's stylist Lauren Hope inquired to see if he would "rework a Kerry GAA jersey into a tactical corset for her major Boiler Room gig in Dublin.”

Quinn says he has “big plans” to rework more pieces in the coming year, and teased a reworked “Lidl merch corset.”

Hope, meanwhile, told IrishCentral that she and Gardezi "have always been interested in different parts of Irish culture, both modern and traditional, and how they intertwine."

Hope said: “We wanted her outfit to really reflect her, she is a very stylish person, so this was the perfect opportunity to combine several parts of Irish culture: music, fashion, and GAA. 

“My brother, Graham O’Sullivan, plays for the Kerry team so he gave me one of his jerseys which is super cool to think that this jersey has had so much life and so many stories behind it, from playing in Croke Park to playing at a Boiler Room in the RDS."

(While Kerry is the winningest county when it comes to GAA All-Ireland Senior Football Championship titles, the Kingdom missed out on the 2023 title to rivals Dublin.)

Hope continued: “The corset was the ideal fashion piece to suit Yasmin’s own style while being a fun nod to her Irish heritage and being from Kerry.

"Dillon Quinn was the perfect man for the job when it came to creating the corset. He is such a talented designer and he brought our idea to life exactly as we had imagined."

Hope says the response to the upcycled Kerry GAA top has been “fantastic” and that “people are really loving it.” She noted that she’ll be using the top in an editorial shoot next week.

The Irish stylist added: “The Boiler Room being in Ireland was a great platform to showcase how proud we are of our Irish culture and the many thriving communities we have here.

"Music, fashion, and GAA are all big, important communities in Ireland and though they aren’t communities you would expect to typically cross, it’s important to show that they aren’t mutually exclusive.

"You can be a part of all these communities and they can exist together which is something we wanted this corset to represent.”
