What She Wears: Fundraiser

You’ve just been asked to buy an overpriced ticket to the latest fundraiser du jour and seeing as you’re a good friend and citizen, you accept the initiation, not quite knowing what to wear.

For such occasions, the idea is to create an outfit that’s both demure and classic – by this I DO NOT MEAN boring. It’s worth seeking out a dress for such philanthropic occasions that you’ll be able to take from day to night and from casual to cocktail.

If there’s a fashion element throw in to the event (via a fashion show or image/beauty consultancy), it means that your outfit should include something unexpected – think a piece of standout jewellery or statement clutch.

Such was the mood at on Friday 12 March 2010, when the stylish set attended the stunning Mount Juliet Estate for the inaugural event that was:


Mount Juliet Spring Salon Fashion Event

The charity event featured an exclusive salon-style showing of the Harvey Nichols Spring/Summer 2010 collection, as well as offering guests the opportunity to Shop the Show in the luxurious Mount Juliet House Presidential Suite. All proceeds from ticket sales went to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

Following a beautiful fashion show, MC’d by Melanie Morris, styled by Paula Hughes and with hair by Kazumi Salon and make up by Mac Dublin, guests were treated to an exclusive fashion workshop with Triona McCarthy, personal styling sessions with the Harvey Nichols team of style and beauty experts, hand massages and mini facials.

The after party then kicked off with champagne antics accompanied by DJ Poppy Lloyd’s beats.
