My Week: Glitz and glam galore at BT show

I met this group of fabulous ladies at the Brown Thomas spring/summer press fashion show in Dublin; Debbi O’Donnell, Laura Woods, Sybil Mulcahy and Ciara Doherty

ONE invite I really love seeing arrive in my inbox is for the spring/summer press launch at the fabulous Brown Thomas store in Dublin.

It's incredible to see labels like Balenciaga, Gucci, Victoria Beckham and many many more of the greatest fashion labels in the world being showcased. Besides the fashion on show it is always packed with the top journalists and bloggers in the country, including Bairbre Power, Deirdre McQuillan, Constance Harris and Melanie Morris, women I have huge respect for when the conversation of fashion comes into play.

Shelly Corkery of Brown Thomas has to be one of the best buyers when it comes to bringing some of the top fashion labels in the world to Ireland.

I was also delighted to chat to John Redmond. I always enjoy meeting him as he is a great supporter of Irish design and has come to Limerick on numerous occasions to judge the International Student Designer Awards which we hope to bring back to Limerick in the near future. Another lady I love meeting is Triona McCarthy of the Sunday Independent beauty page. She is always great fun and a great conversationalist.

So, if you are browsing around Limerick city why not call into Brown Thomas and have a look at their fabulous spring/summer collection.
