I don't normally publish press releases on here but this one is supporting an amazing charity that I just recently become aware of. You may remember when I got my hair and make up done for the In Magazine Awards, Gemma & Lynne told me all about the charity they work tirelessly for - the A21 Campaign, which fights human trafficking both locally and globally through awareness and education.
Well, I'm delighted to hear that A21 is the nominated charity of the 2014 Unify Fashion Showcase and therefore I had to tell you about this two-night showcase of Northern Ireland’s leading design talent, which takes place on the 15th and 16th of May in the Titanic Drawing Offices.
It's set to be one of the biggest nights in the NI fashion calendar. Leading model Nuala Meenehan will host the event on Thursday 15th May and guests can see designs from Goddess and Swift by Larissa Watson, John Paul Couture, RUEDI by Ruedi Maguire, Attune with NewU@92, Honey, The Yellowest Diamonds collection, Diamond Dolls, Art on Fashion by Celine Magill, Tamsin Blackbourn, Gordon Donaldson and the “One to Watch” winning junior designer and runners up.
Then on Friday 16th May, Sarah Travers will host a show that features local designers David Henderson, Shauna Fay, KAM by Kiera Ann Marie, Attune ladieswear, Surreal Fashion by Jessica Edlin and A K A N I by Diana Mukushii and jewellery designers Alison McIlkenny of Rustic Dove Designs, Melanie Bond, Joanna Ritchie of Aura, and Stephanie Cheshire of B’Jewelled Bridal. Milliner Marie Claire Ferguson and Kelly Black Bridal will also be in attendance. Guests will be treated to a roaming fashion show on arrival by costume designer MT Connolly who will be showcasing her stunning flamenco designs.
The Unify Fashion Showcase is officially sponsored by Charles Hurst Specialist Cars. Other local companies supporting the event include North Financial Management, In-Spires and Ground Espresso Bars.
Tickets for the event cost £20 or £25 VIP and includes goodie bag and drinks reception on arrival. For more information visit www.unifyni.com or follow Unify at http://www.facebook.com/Unifystudio or Twitter @UnifyNI / #UnifyisComing.
