LADIES can enjoy a sneak peek at all the latest looks for the autumn/winter season thanks to an international evening of fashion which takes place in the Clarion Hotel on September 25.

The Ursula Stokes Agency will be launching the new collections from top local fashion houses for the fundraising event which is part of Limerick Live 95fm’s Non Stop Tour For Kids to raise much needed funds for the neonatal unit and the Children’s Ark at University Hospital Limerick along with Children At Risk Ireland (CARI).

There will also be a number of special guests modelling on the night including Mayor of Limerick Michael Sheahan, and Cllr Joe Crowley.

“The show allows everyone an up close and personal view of the collections in a totally laid back and relaxed atmosphere in the beautiful ballroom of the Clarion Hotel,” said Ursula.

As admission to the event is free, the organisers are asking people attending to make generous donations on the night for the three worthy causes.

The participating fashion houses include Catherine McCormack from Adare, Frocks & Frills from Killaloe, Joanne’s in Killaloe, The Ivory Closet and Sefton House Bridal in Limerick city, Born Clothing in the Parkway Shopping Centre and Tony Connolly Menswear in the city.

Hair and makeup on the evening will be by Bellissimo and LA Academy.

“We have been doing this event for the past couple of years. It will be a beautiful night and there will be a bridal section as well for all the brides-to-be,” Ursula added.

The event, which commences at 8pm, is invitation only and invites can be secured through Ursula Stokes.

“We are asking people to make a donation and support the raffle,” she said.

Illusionist Steve Spade will also be providing entertainment on the night and there will also be a number of other surprise guests taking to the ramp on the evening modelling the latest designs for the forthcoming season.
