Fashion Fever is in the air and we love it! From New York to Dublin, read on to find out what’s happening this week in celebration of everything fashion.
Young Designer of the Year - Ciaran Gormley
Kick starting the celebrations for this year’s Dublin Fashion Festival was the dazzling Young Designer of the Year fashion show. With Bank of Ireland on College Green as its backdrop, the occasion was staged for an unforgettable evening. Twelve extremely talented finalists were handpicked to present their creations on the night. There could be only one victor of the title and it was awarded to, Ciaran Gormley. Huge congrats to Ciaran, we are so excited to see what the fashion future has in store for you!
Its autumn so of course while we are welcoming our cosy Aran knits and getting our layering under control, the fashion architects are already on to the next one. This week New York Fashion Week launched the trends to look forward to for Spring/Summer 15. NYFW will show the latest collections from some of our most desired designers such as Alexander Wang, Philip Lim, DVF and of course, Mr Marc Jacobs! Spring cleaning cannot come sooner - hello new wardrobe! ;)
They say all good things come in threes and that is certainly true with the fashion power trio that is the McGinn Sisters. Sarah, Jennie and Grace are the masterminds behind the latest fashion online buying experience, OPSH. These ladies aren’t up-and-coming, they’ve already arrived!! Make sure you checkout OPSH to gain the edge on your fashion buying and give the talented ladies a follow (stalk!) on their Instagram.
Throughout this year’s Dublin Fashion festivities there are numerous events showcasing the talent that Dublin has to offer both nationally and internationally. One event which we were fan girling over was the announcement of a style collaboration between Swedish clothing company, H&M, and international stylist, Courtney Smith. Ms Smith selected her favourite pieces from H&M’s AW 2014 Collection and gave them the Courtney stamp of approval with the unique tagging of ‘Courtney Covets’. This Saturday Courtney will be providing her styling expertise to customers in the South King Street shop, along with discussing the trends pegged for this Autumn /Winter.
