Launch of the Dublin Fashion Festival

Published on: July 26, 2013

Last night I went along to the launch of the Dublin Fashion Festival in association with Samsung. Organised by, the fashion festival will run from the 5th to the 8th of September. We got to see a sneak peak at some great AW fashion from all the major retailers and let me tell you there seems to be a lot of black! Just check out the pictures below!

As this year’s official face of the festival, Laura Whitmore will be in Dublin town in September to take part in the packed DFF programme, which will include special offers, live fashion events and in-store activities and much more for all us fashion crazy people.

 It brings together over 100 retailers, including the city’s nine flagship retail stores – Brown Thomas, Stephen’s Green SC, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Arnotts, Clery’s, Ilac SC (incl. Debenhams), Jervis SC, Marks & Spencer, and Penneys.

One of the festival highlights last year, the Creative Quarter Fashion Show, will return again this year and feature the very best of Irish designers, vintage and one-off fashion pieces sourced from the Creative Quarter area (Clarendon Street to South Great Georges Street).  New this year is the Young Designer Fashion Event – a convention and competition which will celebrate the best in young Irish design.

Keep an eye out for show-stopping fashion moments – from spontaneous Fashmobs to a full sized Samsung ‘selfie’ photo-booth and roving DFF style teams making Dublin even more beautiful.  A new feature this year will see the Samsung DFF Beauty Bus  touring the city, decked out in latest mobile devices and notebooks – shoppers can stay connected in style while the on-board DFF beauty team offer makeovers, hair styling and goodie bags. For more information and a list of the retailers participating in the DFF in association with Samsung please visit

Here are some pics I took for you last night!
