I have always felt that Kenmare is a very special place, nesting between the coastal Wild Atlantic way drives of Ring of Kerry and Ring of Bearna. The beautiful Dromquinna Manor was the location for the unveiling of the new season collection from Brown Thomas. On arrival we were warmly greeted by John Brennan of the very successful “At your service” RTE Television series and owner of Dromquinna Manor. As we sipped our Champagne and I glanced around the room, I thought, how well and how glamorous all the Limerick ladies looked.

As we were all enjoying the wonderful l lunch and admiring the beautiful surroundings of Dromquinna Manor we were entertained to the best of fashion and international labels by Brown Thomas.

The Holman Lee models strutted their stuff with Irelands top models including Roz Purcell, Talia, Yomiko and Theo, wearing great labels such as Victoria Beckham, Paule Ka, Max Mara, and many more

The accessories included Jewellery by Max Mara, bags by Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham.

General manager of Brown Thomas Limerick, Liam Dwan and his great staff really looked after all their guests so well and a wonderful day was had by all.

Fashion shows are a great fundraising event, especially for schools. One of the most successful of these is the Laurel Hill Parents Advisory Council Annual Fashion event which is held in the Strand Hotel annually with great crowds in attendance.

sIt is one of the biggest Spring /Summer fashion shows and showcases some of the Cities and Counties best boutiques and fashion houses.

The young beautiful students from Laurel Hill Colaiste and Laurel Hill secondary school took to the ramp wearing clothes from Brown Thomas Spring/ Summer collection to huge applause from the audience.

Once again well done to everyone concerned for a great show.
