DCU Style Society will host their annual fashion week from the 17th to 19th of February.
Each year major cities across the globe celebrate the fantastic fashion houses in the industry. From Burberry in London to Yves Saint Laurent in Paris, the fashion community rejoices together for a glimpse at next season’s collections.
Bringing the excitement a little closer to home, DCU Fashion Week will take place during week three this semester, finishing off with the acclaimed DCU Fashion Show 2015: 10 Years of Style on the 25th of February.
Events during the week include a Swap & Sell clothing exchange and Pop-up Shop, the Bank of Ireland press launch with prizes and competitions, stylists from Oasis to assist with tips and tricks and the preliminary round of the national competition Project Young Designer on the 19th of February.
The competition is being judged by Brendan Courtney, Sonya Lennon, Natalie B Coleman and Ruth Ní Loinsigh of Om Diva boutique and Stellar’s Fashion editor Linda Conway. The lucky winner will have the incredible opportunity to showcase and sell their designs in Om Diva boutique based in the heart of the city. The winner will be announced during the DCU Fashion show.
Chairperson of DCU Style, Emma Kearney, said, “This year we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of DCU Style Society. We will be taking a look back at the DCU Fashion Shows since 2005 and as always the show will be produced, styled and choreographed by DCU students. The DCU Style committee have been working hard since August to make this show the biggest one yet.”
Tickets will be sold throughout the week in the Old Bar and The Street.
