This magazine has been a total labour of love for me, right down to chasing steam trains up and down the country to try and find one to use in our fashion shoot. This end of the year shoot is always the highlight of my fashion year and I think you will agree, the clothes look amazing as does the our romantic heroine, Dublin model Thalia Heffernan who, within days of the shoot, took off for New York where her career is burgeoning and she has been signed by Ford Models. Watch out for this Irish beauty gracing the covers of the international glossies!
We have pages and pages of gift ideas and suggestions for things you can craft and make yourself and with your family over the next three and half weeks.
We’ve made decorating really simple and offer ideas on how to go from quirky modern with fashion designer Carolyn Donnelly to sumptious traditional with interiors expert Emer Kelly from the Drawing Room stores in Dublin. Ruth Monahan’s appassionata flowers grace the tables of all the top parties and she shared her ideas for cute pieces you can gift for friends. There really is nothing as precious a gift made with love.
