There were quite the few fashion happenings in Town last night. Brown Thomas once again played host last night to the Irish National Final of the Triumph Inspiration Awards 2012. Triumph is of the world’s leading lingerie brands, in case you are unaware!
Sixteen fashion students from award-winning Griffith College Dublin and Limerick School of Art & Design demonstrated their creativity and expertise by producing a catwalk showpiece to represent this year’s theme “Dragons and Butterflies”.
The night belonged to Jordan Edmonds Moore, a 21 year old fashion design student from Limerick who will now be representing Ireland at the global final in Shanghi in October. The Limerick School of Art & Design are celebrating a hat-trick for the second year in a row with Jordan’s victory.
It was very impressive to watch the creations of these young designers on the Brown Thomas catwalk. As you can imagine, the atmosphere was electric and the production fantastic. Job well done!
