WEAR IT: Something green. Its St Patrick’s Day on Tuesday, and Ireland are playing rugby tomorrow, so there are plenty of reasons to don the emerald hue. Think street-style icon in green, not leprechaun or GAA star.
SEE IT: A new fashion photography exhibition, Resonate, at the Gallery of Photography in Temple Bar. Showing work from 23 seriously talented folk, including Linda Brownlee, Leonn Ward, Andrew Nuding, Neil Gavin, Alen MacWeeney, and Rich Gilligan, to name just a few.
EAT IT: Greens – its almost St Patricks day! Or, a nice brunch. The Odeon are hosting The Love Brunch on Tuesday from 2pm, with cocktails, canapes, cocktails, yummy brunch stuff, and cocktails. Did we mention there would be cocktails? Get more information here.
HEAR IT: Hozier. Or people like Ellie Goulding covering Hozier. Seems everyone and their mother – not mine – are covering Take Me to Church. I do like his new song too.
SAY IT: Happy St Patrick’s Day!! You are sensing a theme here, right?
Have a good one!
Fashion Week season is coming to a close in Paris, ending weeks of major fashion highs – the Chanel French Brasserie show at the Grand Palais, Zoolander’s cameo at Valentino, J.Crew’s ‘sequins are the new black’ moment in NYC, and fresh talent that we have come to expect from London Fashion Week. Here is a look at my trip to London for the International Fashion Showcase, at LFW. A stunning, innovative, and otherworldly exhibition.
Eight up and coming Irish designers were invited to show their work at an exhibition entitled Into the Fold at the prestigious British Fashion Council, International Fashion Showcase. This event was supported by Irish Design 2015 and Kildare Village, and was the first time that Ireland has showcased at the event.
The exhibition, curated by Gemma A. Williams, selected designers Caoimhe MacNaoise, Richard Malone, Jocelyn Murray Boyne, Michael Stewart, Naoise Farrell, Rory Parnell Mooney, Oliver Duncan and Laura Kinsella to show their work during the four day exhibition, along with one hundred and thirty designers from thirty countries.

And a trip to London would not be complete without a taste of the quirky street-style. I must say, I did enjoy all the young people lurking around Somerset House in the hope of getting photographed with their – probably high-street – version of LFW. From the cooky to the insane, London had it all. And why not?!
