Feisty Fiona plans Exposure of a fashionable kind
Those Dublin Wives certainly know how to party – whatever about fight with a certain doctor. Jo Jordan, Virginia Macari, Roz Flanagan and Lisa Murphy all repaired to Residence last weekend after their appearance on Brendan O'Connor's The Saturday Night Show.
They put on their own show in the private members' club and danced into the early hours. "I didn't get home until 4.30am," Jo told me, adding that she's training to do a charity boxing match in aid of Ballymun Boxing Club. I wonder is she getting the gloves on for Danielle Meagher?
Another feisty lady, fab Fiona Foy Holland, is organising the 4th Annual Irish Fashion Exposure, which takes place on April 12 – with designs from John Rocha, Synan O'Mahony, Philip Treacy and Claire O'Connor among others – in The Stephen's Green Hibernian Club, with all the monies raised going to worthwhile charities such as the Order Of St Lazarus, CrossCare and GlobalH2O. "Over the past three years the Irish Fashion Exposure has raised almost €50,000 and we hope to continue this level of support in the future," Fiona told me.
Meanwhile, former fashion maven and PR guru Mary E Coen has rounded up a stellar trinity to celebrate the publication of her novel Love & The Goddess. Author Ferdia MacAnna will launch the book in Galway next Friday, former minister and now best-selling author Mary O' Rourke puts it on the midlands map in Athlone on February 1 and finally our own Constance Harris is doing the honours in Dublin on February 6 at Lost Society.
"The book is an Irish Eat, Pray, Love with healing travels to Brazil and Peru intermingled with a theme of internet dating as the protagonist seeks love and enlightenment," Mary told me.
Memo to Steven Spielberg: maybe the Dublin Wives could star in the film version?
