Schedule of shows:

Friday 20th March 8pm – Designer Boutiques and Local Designers.
Saturday 21st March 8pm – High Street.
Saturday 21st March 2-4pm Sushi Saturday.
Sunday 22nd March 2-5pm Style Sunday.
Newcomers include fellow blogger Danielle Campbell’s new Lisburn boutique The Style Retreat, along with Dundalk-based designer Gillian Leavy. I have a teal wool coat by Gillian Leavy that I purchased in a small Dundalk boutique over ten years ago and it still looks as good as it did when I first bought it so I’m curious to see what she’ll bring to the catwalk.
One of my favourite fashion gals is fashion stylist and illustrator Sara O’Neill. Her frothy blonde curls spill out over her uniform punk-Goth look and a fellow devotee of a strong black cat eyeliner – she’s a real doll. Sara will showcase her Èadach fashion collection which she tells Sugahfix will be “70s posh boho Stevie Nicks inspired kimonos, kaftans and bell-sleeved dresses” made from printed silk featuring Sara’s illustrations. We want!
