On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th October the Rita Duffy suite at The Merchant Hotel played host to the Fabulous Fashion Teas AW14 series of show.
Kicking off with accessories heaven with models topped and tailed with award-winning accessories designer Grainne Maher’s stunning millinery and Pluck & Devour perspex jewellery and bags, teamed with covetable Christian Louboutin shoes and boots from Harper. Flashes of red soles on the plush carpet distracted us for brief moments as we indulged in delicate dainties and moreish macaroons – washed down with a perfectly chilled glass of Moet & Chandon. Fabulous indeed!
Castle Couture’s stunning bridal gowns inspired brides to be. You might have spotted one of their gorgeous gowns in our fashion shoot for the Fabulous Fashion Teas ad campaign.
Following on from ‘Enchanted Forest’ theme for our ad campaign fashion shoot – the room was dressed with stunning centre pieces and stage set by Floral Earth and Mood Events Décor – we love!
Another local fashion design success story – Cecilia Magill’s Art on Fashion range of printed dresses delighted fashionistas. We love that the body con style dresses mostly feature sleek sleeves – very Kate Middleton!
Sunday was a double hitter with two shows for The Boudoir in Dungannon. From cute and casual knits worn with tailored jeans to sparkling sequin jackets and pretty party dresses from the Linen Green boutique.
The Merchant’s events team are on the ball with Save the Date for SS15 on the 11th and 12th of April. Mark the dates in your diary gals!
