Winter in Kilshanny got off to a great start with the Fashion & Fun Event with Tess Purcell from Style’n Mind giving us an insightful talk about image, body shapes, and how to dress the obligatory little black number up and down in many creative ways!
After Tess’ very illuminating talk, all the ladies had the chance of browsing the upstairs Kilshanny City Shopping Centre. Eight local shops from Clare and Kinvara had set up shop in the quaint first floor of Kilshanny House – an ideal venue for this kind of pop-up stalls!
The businesses gathered were Mix Pixie offering customisable CD’s, Poetry in Motion with their fantastic vintage and designer clothes, Molly’s handmade jewellery and Azz Bazz, an online shop run by a Clare woman. Captain Tortue, Olive Vintage Style from Ennis and Amelia C from Kinvara offered a great variety of unusual and beautiful clothes. We even had milliner Sinéad Madden with us who added further glamour with her amazing creations.
Kilshanny House was filled to the rafters with beautifully dressed ladies – and ladies only. This must have been a first for our dignified house!
We can honestly say that it was a great night for all the girls who enjoyed a glass of wine with their friends and a spot of retail therapy in Kilshanny as much as they would have had in Paris!
