Roisin bags DIT fashion prize
RATHDRUM native Roisin Lawrence – a design student at Griffith College Dublin – came second in the Vodafone DIT Fashion Show in Vicar Street last Thursday.
Roisin's design (pictured) was modelled by DIT student Miriam Hunt and she received the runner-up award on account of her interpretation of the 'Enchanted Forest' theme which ran throughout the show.
Roisin's entry was assessed by a panel of top judges known in the Irish fashion industry including RTE presenter Brendan Courtney, stylist Maria Fusco and Bairbre Power, fashion editor with the Irish Independent.
Roisin's design was not the only Wicklow creation to receive credit on the night, with Roundwood local Sarah Murphy's entry also making the top nine.
