This week in The Chatroom we were joined by Kilcummin National School Principal Gillian Sheehan, as well as Killarney’s answer to Anna Wintour, Norma O’Donoghue, and committee member Geraldine O’Driscoll. The ladies came in to talk about their upcoming Designer Showcase event, which is taking place in the Great Southern Hotel next Thursday April 19. According to Norma, it’s going to be the fashion event of the season!
Norma has used all her contacts in the fashion world to attract the country’s best designers to the event. The Designer Showcase follows on from the successful Liam Lawton concert for Kilcummin National School, which was held prior to Christmas in the Cathedral in Killarney. The organisers are hoping to raise enough funds to complete the flooring of the school’s soon to be completed hall.
The show will feature new designs from Lynes of Killarney, Mods and Minis, Claire Garvey, Marion Murphy Cooney, Valerie O’Shea, Tina Griffin, Carol Kennelly, Cathy Troth, Rebekah Wall, Hazel Comyn, Mary Brosnan, McBees Killarney, Phoenix V Cork, Silk Peaches Cork, Serenity Cork, Scarlett Killarney, Jasmine Tralee and Virginia Bridal Limerick.
