Anthony Ryan’s special annual fashion show devoted exclusively to communion wear will take place at Anthony Ryans on Wednesday next January 11 at 7.30pm.
Parents are invited to come along to view the fashion show together with their children who are making their first Holy Communion this year.
The fashion show will preview this season’s collection of exclusive Communion wear with the clothes being modeled by children from local schools. The show will feature both boys and girls fashions and Ryans will be showing all the latest trends in Communion wear.
For girls, Ryans stock exclusive internationally designed ranges of Communion dresses from Emmerling, White Angel, Isabella and Next Generation. The ranges have been chosen in such a way as to offer the greatest choice in both styling and prices. Sizes start at age seven and continue up to ‘size plus’ catering for faster growing children.
Styling in Communion is simple, elegant and classically romantic. Ankle length and full length dresses are particularly popular this year with the princess style lending a fairytale feeling. Fabrics of satin and organza tend to be the most popular. Embroidery tends to be discreet and large simple bow ties or buttons to the back are a strong feature. Headdresses and head tiers are simple and elegant, while dresses with boleros complete the total look. There is an abundance of delightful accessories such as bags, gloves, umbrellas, socks and tights. You can also get Communion footwear which is sold in satin finishes and ballet styles.
Boy’s Communion fashions vary greatly but the classic jacket and tie is still the favourite. Ryan’s offer dapper formal suits, less formal waistcoat suits or your son may wish to dress casually and choose an outfit from the huge selection of boyswear on offer at the Ryans boys department.
The fashion show will take place on the first floor of the shop and while there is no charge, numbers are limited. There will also be 10 per cent discount on all Communion wear purchased on the night. Tickets are available at the store or they can be reserved by telephoning 091-567061.
