It was a case of "handbags at dawn" in Dunnes Stores when fashion fans fought to get their mitts on Amy Huberman's white jumpsuit.

Designer Sonya Lennon revealed there were "fisticuffs" in the changing room as two ladies tried to get their hands on the jumpsuit she co-designed and which Amy Huberman wore to a pre-Oscars party.

The actress looked stunning in a white Lennon Courtney one-piece and silver heels from her own Bourbon collection at the Oscar Wilde party at Bad Robot in Hollywood on Thursday night.

Thanks to the "Amy effect", the same striking fashion piece costing €119 is almost sold out in Dunnes as style fans rush to get their hands on the summery item.

Two customers were witnessed squabbling over the one remaining size 8 in the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre branch. Former RTE presenter Sonya jokingly described it as a bout of "fisticuffs".

"There was a bit of argy-bargy between two ladies," she said. "They are trying to get in more sizes now, but it's a limited collection. Once it's gone - it's gone. That's the Amy effect."

She said, thankfully, she and fellow designer Brendan Courtney weren't there to see the dispute, as "that would have been a bit embarrassing".

Amy contacted them last week to inquire about the one-piece.

"She saw it online before they went into the store and we were able to help her out with it. It only went up there and into the stores on Saturday, and we think there's only a couple left now," she said.

Actress Amy, who has spent the past two weeks in LA, posted a snap of herself jumping in the outfit, saying: "Hey Lennon-Courtney, your jumpsuit has been tried and tested, and totally works! Thank you."

Also at the Hollywood bash was Claudine Keane and Indiana Jones actress Alison Doody.
