If you love fashion and you can get to Wexford on the 20th September, then you should check out the third annual charity Love Fashion, Love Wexford show! This is my idea of a perfect night out. Strawberries and champagne, whilst watching the talented models showcase both local and international designers.
I have my ticket and cannot wait to go along and take in the heart-stoppingly fierce designs of Turkish couturier Umit Kutluk who will rub shoulders with looks from Ruby Rouge and a host of top boutiques.
Gorgeous pieces from the Irish Fashion Innovation Awards’ Jewellery Designer of the Year Bláithín Ennis will add more than a hint of sparkle to proceedings and there will be fabulous headwear on show courtesy of Alice J Kelly Millenery.
I’ve been admiring Alice’s beautiful headpieces for several months now, so am really looking forward to these in particular.
I’m also looking forward to seeing the high fashion make up looks, courtesy of the Gainfort Academy Make Up team and TV3’s Ken Boylan.
Some of Ireland’s top models will descend upon this year’s venue, the strikingly modern Robin Lee-designed Wexford County Hall, and they will be joined on the catwalk by Wexford’s hottest GAA stars.
Host for the evening is RTÉ presenter Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh who will be able to put her Celebrity Bainisteoir experience to good use should any of the gentlemen step out of line on the catwalk!
This year’s recipient charity is the wonderfully deserving It’s Good 2 Talk, which provides a low-cost counselling service in the community. See www.itsgoodtotalk.com for more.
Tickets for LFLW are just €20 from www.wexfordchamber.ie and Westgate Design. As always, guests will be positively pampered with bubbly and strawberries on arrival, generous discounts from boutiques and exhibitors and a two-night break for the best-dressed lady or gent. Doors open at 7pm.
So now all I have to do is work out what I’m going to wear! You know me, I love any excuse to get dressed up!
