I had the supreme pleasure of attending the amazing Cork Fashion Week awards last Wednesday (October, 7) in the Grainstore, Ballymaloe House.
Guests and nominees were treated to a spectacular show produced by fashion week directors Emer O’Mahony and Vivienne McCarthy of Lockdown Models. The show showcased some amazing Irish designers including Caroline Matthews, Jennifer Rothwell, Catriona Hanly and Marion Murphy Cooney.
The famed venue was filled fashion lovers, boutique owners. bloggers and some famous faces alike including Olivia Tracey, Darina Allen, Noel Cunningham, Sandra Murphy and Lorraine Keane.
Some of the big award winners on the day included Xposé producer Debbie O’Donnell, stylist Irene O’Brien, blogger 4NG Style and businesswoman Linda Kiely.
Sitting at a table with Oliva Tracey has to be a career highlight for me, to be honest I did nearly faint!
My shirt (which does have a funny fit in the pics) is from River Island as are the trousers while my dark purple coat is from New Look. My monkstrap shoes are from Patrick Bourke Menswear, Ennis.
Looking forward to more creative events again next year!
