My Week: Serving up fashion and style

What a great evening at the Dawn Milk and NDC Ladies Lifestyle Evening in the INEC

I NEVER thought that I would see myself sitting on a couch on a stage in the INEC Killarney chatting to 500 women about my life and style. But that's exactly where I was two weeks ago for the Dawn Milk Ladies Lifestyle Evening.

I met some very interesting people including dietician and author Paula Mee.

Paula cut through the jargon and gave the audience practical tips and advice that works. Another speaker on the night who was extremely interesting was Natalie Lennon, personal trainer and health blogger.

Natalie gave lots of fitness and wellbeing advice and also demonstrated exercises that could be completed at home which really suited me down to the ground.

For my own Q&A slot I spoke about my life in the fashion industry and my personal style and style tips. I had so much to say about the industry that I had forgotten that I am almost half a century in this business and it was difficult to shut me up once I got started. This segment seemed to resonate with the audience and I got a huge applause. I also did a style clinic with the Holman Lee models and some of the top boutiques in Killarney.

It was great to be part of raising €7,000 for two local charities, the Donal Walsh Livelife Foundation and the Ian O'Connell Trust.
