ISPCC Brown Thomas Fashion Show 2016 & Luncheon
Friday, 2nd September TV presenter and ISPCC Ambassador Amanda Byram officially launched the annual ISPCC Brown Thomas Fashion Show at The Intercontinental Hotel in Ballsbridge, Dublin. Amanda Byram, wearing a Peter Pilotto dress from The Designer Rooms at Brown Thomas Dublin acted as MC at the highly-anticipated event which raises vital funds for the ISPCC. The luncheon, now in its 16th year has raised almost €1,000,000 to date for the ISPCC and officially launches the season’s social calendar.
The stylish event welcomed over 370 guests who were treated to an exclusive viewing of the new Autumn Winter 2016 international collections from Brown Thomas’ coveted Designer Rooms which featured key trends from the international runways. The show opened with Prada followed by Céline, Gucci and Balenciaga; with favourites on the day including Victoria Beckham, new label Loewe and this season’s exciting addition Maticevski ensuring a dramatic grand finale.
The Brown Thomas fashion show was the main highlight of the event, and this year there was a fantastic surprise with Ireland’s original supermodels – Marie Staunton, Sheila Eustace, Beverly Keegan, Vivienne Connolly, Sylvia Myers, Lisa Cummins and Olivia Tracey – celebrating women and making an empowering statement for the season ahead as they exclusively returned to the catwalk wearing the latest collection from Dolce & Gabbana.
Brown Thomas Fashion Director, Shelly Corkery, along with President of the ISPCC, Caroline Downey, hosted the event and welcomed guests to a Veuve Clicquot champagne reception.
Guests in attendance at the event included ISPCC Ambassador Louis Walsh, in addition to Brown Thomas Group Buying Director Paul O’Connor as well as Ali Hewson, Alison Doody, Lucy Nagle, Caroline Harrington and Sharon Smurfit.
Guests were treated to the Yellow Label Champagne, which is the epitome of Veuve Clicquot style and was the perfect start to the sophisticated event. Maria Estivariz, Veuve Clicquot Brand Manager, was present to enjoy the event. Guests on the day received an exclusive gift from Estée Lauder.
