Best of 2013: Event: My ‘Hills’ Moment

Working within the fashion industry is amazing and leaves me with an unbelievable feeling of determination, motivation and happiness. I’ve been writing all about the latest trends, events and purchases for a while now and I wanted to expand my experience within this industry. Please welcome Grainne Maher. For those of you who have been living on another planet, Grainne is a fabulous milliner and jewellery designer who has her very own concession, Pluck & Devour, at the House of Fraser.

Having dreamed of working within the fashion industry all of my life, I was over the moon when an opportunity to assist Grainne backstage at the Arthur Cox fashion show at The Merchant Hotel came up.

It was brilliant to get a sense of how things work behind the scenes of a fashion show. It was so fun dressing the models and helping various designers such as Una Rodden throughout the evening. I was assigned to help dress the beautiful Tiffany Brien, former Miss Northern Ireland 2012. It was great working with her and seeing first hand how much hard work models put into each show.

image

The show was hosted by the fabulous Cathy O’Conner who regularly styles editorials for TV3′s Xpose and style fashion features and make overs on ‘Ireland AM’. It was a joy to be in the company of such a strong and inspirational woman.

image

I had an amazing time at the fashion show and I’m excited to continue styling and assisting in future shows. Thank you to Gráinne and the rest of the girls for having me along. ♥

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Una Rodden Fashion Installation

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a fabulous fashion first in the form of live models integrated with stunning video clips of Una Rodden’s magnificent AW13 collection.

The event was so refreshing and it was amazing to be able to get the opportunity to get up close and personal with her stunning pieces.

Una is a personal favourite of mine within the designer industry, and how can I forget the beautiful dress she made for me to wear at my brothers wedding in July.

The setting for the show was just beautiful. The room had a magnificent dome in the roof and it worked beautifully with the fashion installation.

It was amazing to be in the company of such a talented and down to earth designer. Una’s store is located on Upper Arther Street in the City Centre. It is definitely worth visiting!

Happy Friday. Hope you all have a great weekend. ♥

Warehouse opens at Victoria Square

Warehouse is one of my favourite high street stores to shop in. They are so good at catering to all styles from punk rock to ladylike chic.

They recently opened their newly refurbished store in the heart of Victoria Square. As soon as I entered the store, I was greeted with some delicious Gin & Tonic sparkly cupcakes. (Not a bad treat, eh?)

Anywho, I’ve uploaded some images of my favourite pieces and accessories from their AW13 collection. I think a serious shopping spree is in order! 😉

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
