Showing that Irish Design has a Voice.

Loft Market Dublin Fashion Show October 2009Hundreds of fashion followers arrived at The Powerscourt Centre, South William Street last night. Over 20 Dublin-based fashion designers, including Lisa Shawgi (the brains behind Fashion Breakthrough), Sinead Doyle, Beibhinn Flood, Chupi, Jean Melia (winner of the DIT fashion show earlier this year) and the fabulous Perk Up Vintage among others, were there to showcase their current collections. The catwalk, a brilliant white strip, ran through the centre of the main hall; the front row was big leather couches, and the whole space was filled with lights.

Irish designers are continuing to express how important and attainable Irish fashion can be. By promoting their collections in this way, designers were able to show that Irish design talent does in fact stay on home soil. And that designer fashion is affordable; contrary to popular belief, you can actually buy your own, hand-made, one-off piece, for as little as €10.

Speaking of shopping, the indoor market, that is usually only open Fri-Sun, was opened until 10pm after the show. All the designers featured in the show, also had a stall in the market, which meant that you could grab the same pieces that you had fallen in love with on the catwalk.

    Oh VERY sorry I didn’t go now. I can’t even remember what I was doing but I am experiencing some kind of odd lethargy these days… dammit. Looks great.

      It’s the chilly weather, I’d rather be wrapped up in a blanket in front of the fire than out running about in heels!
      I would be a little concerned that you can’t remember what you were up to though… it was only last night! It must be that crazy social life you have!

    Ha ha! Not quite… I had a day off, and I drove me fella to the airport before returning home to, eh… hmmm. Maybe I watched TV. That could be it. Or I blogged, and I think I put on a wash! There. Very exciting social life.

      It really was great. It’s nearly always the way isn’t, the capital city gets all the love! I’ll make sure I cover as much as possible so you don’t miss out on too much! x
