It’s all about the Dublin Fashion Festival

As some of you may know, the Dublin Fashion Festival returns this September. It’s going to be bigger, bolder and better than ever before with it’s first ever week-long celebration of all things #DublinFashion. I am so excited as I am a true lover of fashion and personal style. I love seeing how everyone puts their own mark on their fashion choices and the inspiration behind them. A whole week of fashion celebrations, yes please! This is my first year to attend the Dublin Fashion Festival and I am so excited. The big question will be, what will I wear?!

The festival celebrates all things fashion, from daily on street catwalk shows and night-time runway spectaculars to workshops, makeup master classes and the Young Designer of the Year competition. For any budding fashionista’s out there this is your time to get involved. It is a week of learning and to become inspired by those in the fashion industry.

One highlight of the festival, the Young Designer of the Year competition will be on Wednesday 9th September. The show will display the best of innovative design, creativity and style from design students nationwide with the finalist designers’ pieces being showcased in front of an invited audience of key fashion influencers as they compete for the title of Young Designer of the Year. Here are some of the photos from last years event. I love seeing the creativity in this fashion show and cannot wait to see what the final 12 have in store.
