Fashionistas gather for BT's sneak-peek
The fashion elite were out in force at Brown Thomas in Dublin this week for a preview show of the Autumn/ Winter 2013 collections. Welcomed by fashion director Shelly Corkery, invitees were treated to a show of what's to come.
Pink champagne was the evening's tipple and strutting the catwalk in sartorial splendour were Thalia Heffernan, newlywed Karen Fitzpatrick, and brides-to-be Sarah Morrissey and Faye Dinsmore. London-based Laragh McCann also flew in for the event, before jetting off to Paris and New York on her summer holidays.

Lusted-after items from the contrasting key trends of punk and minimalism will be on rails in a matter of weeks. Usual suspects included Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, Prada – and The Row, by US actresses Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, which features for the first time in Ireland.
