THE inaugural Dublin Festival of Fashion (DFF) attracted thousands of extra shoppers into the city centre over the weekend, with free styling workshops and in-store discounts.

Brendan Courtney from RTE's 'Off The Rails' provided free style advice at the Ilac Centre, while Ken Boylan, make-up artist to the stars, was on hand at the Fashion Cafe in the Market Bar with advice on new winter looks.

The outdoor fashion shows -- which were rained off on Friday and Saturday -- finally happened yesterday on Henry Street and Grafton Street.

"We've definitely demonstrated that there is potential and an appetite for a fashion festival of this nature," Richard Guiney, fashion festival chief, said. "It is now something that we can build upon and grow for next year, making it a regular staple in Dublin's events calendar.

"The Dublin Festival of Fashion garnered a lot of attention not just around our own country but also further afield -- the festival has even been blogged about in Paris."
