The Merchant Hotel’s Fabulous Fashion teas are always a stylish affair with the chicest gals attending the shows, catching up with friends, sipping Moet & Chandon champagne, nibbling the on savoury sandwiches and devouring the divine sweet treats on the top tier of the cake stand – it really is a fabulous way to spend the afternoon with friends.
On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th April, the events floor of the 5 star hotel became a fashion destination with pop up boutiques stocked up so fashionistas could shop the looks right off the runway.
Excel Clothing, Art on Fashion, Harper, Gráinne Maher and Goddess & Swift showcased their SS15 collections while Ruedi Maguire looked ahead to AW with his stunning evening wear accessorised with a brand new range of handmade accessories – A.P.D. jewellery. Funds raised from a luxury ballot at each of the events will be donated to The Merchant’s 2015 charity partner, The MacDermott Oncology Haematology Day Unit at the Ulster Hospital, Belfast.
The style on the day was laid back luxury. Lots of Louboutins and covetable arm candy was spotted – these gals know how to accessorize! We loved Carrie Neely’s quirky style – we need that ‘Meow’ tee! Dresses with heels and jeans with dressy jackets were the most popular looks.
The Merchant’s Fashion Teas will be back for Autumn on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October 2015. For further information and to pre book tickets, contact The Merchant Hotel’s events team on 028 9026 2717.
