Get ready for Autumn with the Dublin Fashion Festival
The Dublin Fashion Festival is back this year from Monday September 7th – Friday the 13th with a whole array of fashion treats in store. Pippa O’Connor has been unveiled as this years ‘face of the festival’ following in the footsteps of Angela Scanlon, Laura Whitmore and Amanda Byram.
This year, the best of the city’s fashion retailers will be on hand to host on-street fashion shows on Grafton Street and Henry Street, night-time extravaganzas, exciting in-store events, exhibitions, stylathons, and much, much more. The crème de la crème of young designers from across Ireland will also have the chance to showcase their vision for fashion, and compete for the coveted title of Young Designer of the Year in one of Ireland’s largest fashion events. Showcasing the best in Irish design and high street labels, Dublin Fashion Festival will turn sidewalks into catwalks again this September to get the people of Dublin out to enjoy shopping in the centre whether it’s a spree in Oasis, a jaunt around the Creative Quarter or a high street haul on Henry Street.
