DUBLIN FASHION FESTIVAL: CREATIVE QUARTER SHOW

"With Angela Scanlon as our host for the night, we were kept on our toes with her quick wit and brilliant sense of humour and everyone seem to have a huge smile on there face throughout the night."



Necessary face pulling on the night for some laughs.
Hey guys,
I thought I'd share a quick lowdown of my final day at the Dublin Fashion Festival, which I attended last week. You can also catch my post on the launch of the DFF >>>HERE<<<. This time around it was an outing for the 'Creative Quarter' fashion show which was held in a converted Powerscourt Townhouse (BTW, absolutely gorgeous location for those of you who haven't seen it- try Tea time at the Pepperpot Cafe for a very cutesy experience).
I was running a little late to this event, so arrived just in time for the show to start. I did however pick up a goody-bag on the way in and managed to bump into lots of familiar faces including the very lovely Laura Mullett of Lipstick Gossip and Galway girl Ciara O Doherty

The downfalls of arriving to a fashion show just on time meant no seat for the show, but I did get a great spot to see all of the looks at the end of the catwalk. The shows theme was evening wear, with a focus on textures including sequins and fur (and fluff of assorted varieties). The energy on the night - as with all of the DFF events- was fantastic!

We wound up our evening with an obligatory selfies/ photo session with pals new and old, including the artistically shady mannequin busts who garnered there fair share of the spotlight (see below for said mannequins). Finally -opting out of the lavish Pygmalion after party- we made our way to Eddy Rockets off Grafton St. Feasting on Oreo Milkshakes and assorted favourites was my lovely  +one Leah Crawford, Stylist Brian Conway, Photographer Aaron Hurley, Stylist Laura Mullett and Designer Erika H Taite of The Design Centre
Many a giggle was had before finally making our way back to our awaiting abodes for a well earned rest.

I hope you've enjoyed reading about my experience at the Dublin Fashion Festival, stay tuned for the next adventure <3 .x
