Buy My Dress (Galway) 25/05/2014

I shared some photos on my facebook page of this event which was held last Sunday 25/05/2014 in the Clayton Hotel Galway and here is the accompanying blog!

It was a very busy but worthwhile day. I arrived at 10am but there were others there before me and some were there the day before too – it was a great team effort!

The dresses were kindly donated prior to and during the event. We were busy steaming, hanging and pricing items before display. There was a rail for ballgowns and similar and the rest of the items were displayed according to size.

Then everyone dispersed to look after the shoppers / dressing rooms etc... it was all go!!

Suzanne Kinneavy from Suzannes Image & Wardrobe Consultancy was there to give fashion and styling advice. Patrycja from PR Make-up was on hand to make-up the busy shoppers if they wished before / after their shopping - it was a lovely treat!

Fiona from Fusion Fashion showcased some lovely Stella and Dot pieces and Milliners Caithriona King and Michael Mullins also showcased their fabulous work. I had fun 
speaking to them about how they get their creative ideas and how they make a piece from start to finish.

There were also handmade bags and jewels on display by Lisa in Buttons and Beads.

It is a very worthy cause and I was glad to be part of it. I also picked up a few items myself – as the money was going to charity it was guilt free shopping! See photos of same below - I am looking forward to styling these up!!

Over €9,500 was raised which is fantastic. Well done to the organisers and all involved!

Bye for now xxx
