There are a few things that not even a hearty recession can curtail. If you're not popping sprogs these days, you're walking down the aisle, and there's no better way to say I do than in a Patrick Casey bridal gown.
This Wednesday evening, in Myrtle Ivory on Anne's Lane in Dublin, you can meet Mr Casey, peruse his new collection and sip on some bubbly.
Patrick has been working internationally in fashion for more than 20 years, holding a lead design role with Vivienne Westwood in London.
His creations are exquisite, with intricate details using antique beading and Swarovski crystals. The designer also uses exotic silks and French lace in his work. Places are limited, so book in advance. It starts at 6.30p.m. www.myrtleivory.com
