Ultimate Girls Day Out






Spent the whole day setting up our stand with Bea and Heather at the Ultimate Girls Day Out event... Bea went to Ikea and bought some light wood shelves, a couple of wooden stools and some simple frames in different sizes. We picked some nice pastel paints to cover them, and some nice low-key wallpaper to keep the colour theme running throughout the stand...it took us the whole day but it was worth it!

Helping out at Fashion Breakthrough

Got a call this morning from Lisa to help out at the Fashion Breakthrough fashion shows. Fashion Breakthrough is a twice-yearly event that showcases some of the most talented up-and-coming Irish designers... Many of these being my friends from the Loft I was delighted to help! Heidi Higgins, Sinead Doyle, Karolina Schlagner, Deirdre Harte & Beibhinn Flood all had beautiful pieces in the catwalk shows, not to mention Lisa Shawgi who not only designs the most amazing hand-knitted dresses but also organises the whole event! I was backstage, working as dresser, usually a pretty stressful job but everything was so well organised it went very very smoothly.

Here's a few pics I took behind the scenes in between the catwalk runs in the afternoon...
