The Festival of Fashion will kick off at 8pm today (Thursday ) with a wine and canapés reception in the stunning Marine Institute in Renville, Oranmore. The event, in association with the Clarenbridge Oyster Festival, will get you ready for a season of festival fun from racing to arts and music to oysters. You are sure find a look to suit you with festive collections from Ail Ruin, Squisito, Sorelle, Concepts, Select, Madison, Nestor’s, Daisy, Brown Thomas, Shenil Shoes, Demora, and Standún.
Exclusive showcases from milliner Mark T Burke and the couture collection of Irish design duo, Tyrrell and Brennan, ensure this is an event to tantalise the most discerning fashionista.
The Clarenbridge Oyster Festival has confirmed Seavite, Ireland’s original organic seaweed-based skincare brand, as sponsor for the event, and the first 100 women through the door will receive a beautiful travel pack of this special Galway product.
“We are very excited about the show, which is new to our festival programme this year,” said Marie Cloonan, festival chairperson. “A sincere thank you to the Marine Institute for their support of this event, to Catwalk Modelling Agency, to Ken Wakefield Hairdressing and Belleza Beauty Spa for their commitment in making this a wonderful showcase for festival 2011.”
