Fashion Innovation Awards 2015

I was delighted to be going to this years awards as I knew some of the designers, organisers and models that were involved in the event and I wanted to show my support.

The day started off with guest designer Helen Cody talking to Pat Kenny of NewsTalk ahead of the show while the production team were getting everything ready for the evening.

The show began with a drinks reception in the foyer of the Radisson where there was some seriously amazing sushi canapes being passed around! Each person who attended also received a gift with Keoghs Crisps, Youngblood Cosmetics, Rustic Grub samples, Ferrero Rocher chocolates and Accorn Insurance Discount Card and the latest Issue of GALWAYnow magazine! What a treat!
