But the action isn’t just restricted to the streets of Dublin, as Arnotts are going all out with a Fashion and Beauty Glam Prix and the ultimate Formula 1 Experience from Certina watches.
The event takes place across Arnotts fashion and beauty departments until 3rd June and Certina watches will host the Ultimate Formula 1 Driving experience in Arnotts menswear department from Saturday, where visitors will be able to test their driving skills in the cockpit of a full scale F1 simulator, with genuine controls and motion effects.
Over the course of the weekend on each day a “Fast-Fix Fashion” event will also take place. On Saturday June 2nd, TV presenter and stylist Darren Kennedy will be presenting 3 fast-fix workshops from the Ladies Contemporary Floor – these will take place at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. On Sunday June 3rd, stylist Cathy O Connor will be presenting 3 fast-fix workshops from the Shoe Garden, these will take place at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
CERTINA, part of the Swiss watch Swatch Group, have launched in Ireland (in Arnotts) and to celebrate, they’ve placed a real Formula1 car in store for you to test drive. Sponsors of the Sauber Formula1 team, Certina’s ultimate Formula1 driving experience will be in Arnotts menswear department from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd June where Visitors will be able to test their driving skills over 2 laps of the ‘Silverstone National’ track to see if they have what it takes to be the future F1 World Champion, in the cockpit of a full scale F1 simulator, with genuine controls and motion effects.
