Ciana March and I
Last Saturday I headed to Killarney for Kerry Fashion Week Industry Awards 2014 of which I was nominated for 'Best Blog'. Firstly let me say how flattered I was to be considered as a finalist in the first place, and also how happy I was for the girls of 'Concrete Collar' to walk away with the outright prize. Both girls work so hard on promoting young new designers and I was delighted to finally get the chance to meet Ciana on the night and instantly fell in love with her funky award dress by designer Jocelyn Murray Byrne.
As it was an award for helping to establish Irish design and fashion it was really important for me to wear likewise to last weekend's proceedings. A once HUGE 'Off the Rails' fan, I was delighted when Lennon Courtney sent me their navy beach dress from their Spring Summer '14 collection (also stocked in the Kilkenny Shop). The dress itself was so beautiful to wear and very different to my usual style but definitely something that will look amazing on various shapes due to it's clever tailoring. As i was being gifted the dress for the evening, it gave me the opportunity to splash out on one of these Joanne Hynes bib necklace for the event which I had been lusting after for so long. Next on the list is one of her statement collars!
Apologies for the delay in this post, it's been a hectic week since last Saturday's events, where I was burnt out from wine-ing, dinning, driving the breath of the country and also participating in last Thursday's fashion show in Langton's in aid of Chernobyl Childrens International Charity. So this weekend I took some well deserved me time and spent it chilling out and browsing the shops, both in Kilkenny and Kildare. You may have seen on my Instagram that I took a trip up to Kildare Outlet Village today as part of their VIP sale and I'll do a post later this week on my naughty purchase(s).
Thank you to Dermot Fitzgerald for the above snaps!
Until next time Ducklings,
