At the launch, held in the Limerick Craft Hub, Enable Ireland, launched their summer fashion show, which will feature models from the Ursula Stokes Model Agency, and will showcase some of the best of Limerick’s fashion and accessories for summer.

There will be style from Gretta Gibbs, Carrig Donn, Rasberry Red, My Choice, Hat’s Desire, The Attic Bridal Boutique and Esquire Menswear, with Limerick fashion designers Caroline Mitchell, Daiva’s Textiles, Kate Ramsey, Linda Wilson, Olann Hats, and jewellery designers Fergus Grant-Stevenson, Susan McCarthy and Clare Jordan of the Limerick Craft Hub.

“We in Enable Ireland are very excited about our new social partnership with The Limerick Craft Hub and are looking forward to working with them in the future. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Limerick and the surrounding areas for their continuous support and generosity” said fundraiser Ann Enright.

The Craft Hub is also engaging with service users of Enable Ireland through the Community Craft initiative.

Clare Jordan, of the Craft Hub, said they are proud to be working with Enable Ireland Limerick as part of their Community Craft Engagement Program, “which is a fundamental part of what the Craft Hub is about - bringing craft to the community - all communities”.
