I recently attended a fashion show organised by the Clarenbridge Oyster Festival committee at the Marine Institute. First, the originality of the venue astonished me, then the gems of styles that boutiques revealed wonderfully surprised me. Although special occasions outfits were very much featured during the show, stylish and easy to wear day looks dominated the catwalk. The one outfit that stroked my eyes was a light turquoise sequin jacket with an aqua blue shorts and white tee from Galway boutique Daisy – this quirky and elegant number can be worn day to evening.
Layering, fluid material, and neutral shades were strong trend looks on the catwalk. Anything from black harem pants styled with nude satin top, or an interesting grey dress with hood from Squisito boutique, to a cute tulle ballerina skirt with cropped cardigan at Ail Ruin. The neutral trend is better styled with other neutrals, but you can add a splash of colour such as a tangerine handbag.
For colours lovers, bright and bold coloured, long and short dresses were featured from Concept’s boutique, wear them with a cropped cardigan and floppy hat.
Timeless, fun, and elegant described the occasion outfit – from subtle pastels dress at Madison to a multi-patterned dress from Maxmara. Sorelle boutique had a baby pink fitted dress with feminine details on the shoulders with a gorgeous headpiece, perfect for a wedding, races, or other summer events, not to mention the superb headpieces from milliner Mark T Burke.
The show closed with exquisite pieces from designers Tyrrell and Brennan. Among the stunning dresses, a long green chiffon dress with delicate florals was the show stopper.
