DIT Fashion Show 2009 The Results

Vicar Street became fashion haven for the entire evening as style conscious Dubliners mingled amongst models and designers alike to catch a glimpse of the future of Irish design. The queue to get was a veritable fashion feast before we even got inside, everyone there was dressed to impress in their own individual style. Colours, textures, fabrics, layers, embellishments and accessories were all present in abundance, with everyone eyeing up each others look with nods of respect and admiration.

Inside, cute ushers were dressed like neon ballerinas and served us Bulmers Cider as we took our seats. Urban dance routines, break dancers and jugglers entertained the audience in between shows. DJ Grande Dame, Mo Kelly span the tunes as the stunning student models walked for high street stores including House of Fraser, French Connection and BT2. As well as boutiques including Lara, Chica and Epoch. (Mo Kelly incidentally, donated her fee for the event to Teenline, the charity that the whole event was raising money for).

The Highlight and most anticipated show was the 8 incredible outfits that made the student design final. the judges were:

Garrett Pritcher, owner of Indigo and Cloth; Bairbre Power, editor if the Irish Independent Weekend magazine; Kate Nolan owner of Fable Clothing and Designer, Caoimhe O’Dwyer and the winner was ……

Jean Melia’s “Tribal Armour”

Congratulations to all, and i’d like to wish the flame haired Jean Melia, all the best for what is sure to be a hugely successful career in Fashion. I managed to grab a quick word with her in the interval before the winner was announced and i’m happy to report that she is a true lady and thorougly deserves the accolade she won last night.
