Tonight’s NI Designer Catwalk Show and Diet Coke Design Award was a spectacular show debuting Northern Ireland’s finest designers. I sat in awe as designs from Ruedi Maguire, Una Rodden, Grainne Maher, Mary Callan, Katie and many more made a stylish impact not only on myself but everyone in attendance.
What I loved most about the show this evening was not only the designs but the fantastic atmosphere that lit up the room. Spirits were high, the West Coast Coolers were flowing and we were all dancing along to the fabulous music. I was seated with my FABB friend Sara Neill. I had such a great night with her and she looked stunning in her leather dress.
As it is Saturday night, I wanted to wear a flirty dress to finish off my Fashion Week. I opted for my red lace mini from Oasis. I was thinking of wearing it with my black blazer but instead I went for my biker jacket to give it a little edge. Again, I kept my accessories to a minimum with my black lace clutch and leopard shoe boots from Marks & Spencers. (Ladies these shoes are so stylish & comfy, I highly recommend them!) I decided to curl my hair and with my make-up I went for the classic smokey eye.
