Here I am with the Oxendales team, Patricia Halligan, marketing, Ronnie Coffey, director, and Brenda OSullivan, style director, and a number of former top Irish models at the Oxendales Whats Your Style? event
THE Fashion for The Passion event at Limerick Strand Hotel drew one of the biggest crowds I have seen at a fashion show so far this season!

THE Fashion for The Passion event at Limerick Strand Hotel drew one of the biggest crowds I have seen at a fashion show so far this season!

It was a very entertaining fashion evening where Limerick’s fashion stores showed the best of their spring collections. It was great to see a number of top Irish designers including Marion Murphy Cooney, Caroline Mitchell, and Marie Louise Reynolds, and a host of new names such as Natalie King, Emma Mulcair and Dublin-based Aideen Bodkin and Niamh O’Neill, showcase their designs. Presenter Lorraine Keane did a super job as host for the evening and looked absolutely stunning as always. A big well done to the organisers and the best of luck in their production of The Passion 2014 recreation of The Passion of Our Lord from the “agony at Gethsemane to his final crucifixion”, which will take place from Holy Thursday to Good Friday, April 17 and 18 in Pallasgreen.

THE Oxendales What’s Your Style? event which was held in the RDS, Dublin over the Mother’s day weekend was a fabulous experience. It was great to work with a host of former top Irish models who are now mothers and grandmothers and still look sensational. The concert hall in the RDS was such a perfect 
venue.

The crowds who came in their droves thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience which included fashion, hair, make-up and shapewear demonstrations and makeovers. The star of the event, and you might have seen her on Ireland AM, was makeover candidate, Theresa Donnelly from Dundalk, who walked away with a wardrobe from Oxendales.
