Irish Accessory Designer of the Year 2017
Over All Innovation award 2017
On March 29th I was lucky enough to attend the Irish Fashion Innovation Awards as a nominated designer in the accessory category, The event is organised by Golden Egg productions and Galway now Magazine and hosted in the Radisson blu Galway city.
To say I was delighted and shocked to be awarded the title of Accessory Designer of the year on the night , is a complete understatement. I was sitting down with my parents trying to take it in, in the a daze, when my name was called again as over all Innovation Award Winner. Complete shock and confusion ensued followed by disbelief and elation.
The awards in 2017 were judged by a panel consisting of Eddie Shanihan, Patricia Mc Crossan, Rebecca Marsden, and Elaine Prenderville.
Its such a thrill to see your work being showcased on such elegant models such as Katie Geoghegan, Thalia Heffernan and January Winters and to be photographed by the wonderful Darach G Photography.
One of those nights that I will remember forever no matter whats happens in the future.
