THE ATHENAEUM restoration Taste of Fashion event at the Riverside Park hotel on Wednesday October 10 will have a Cork connection. The glamorous ladies from the Cobh Animation Team ( pictured above right) are all set to join the local models on the catwalk that evening.
But, while the rest of the night will be devoted to the latest in fashion from Enniscorthy boutiques, the animation team will display clothes from an earlier era. Their outfits have been assembled from stock in charity shops to re-create the style worn a century ago around the time that the Titanic called to Cobh. The Taste of Fashion evening will feature the latest from Glamour, Mary Elizabeths, Tantrum, Zanadu, Cloze & Shooz, Helen D`Eathe, with headpieces by Wexford Designer Patsy Flood O`Connor and showcasing Avoca, Sam McCauley, Vinegar Hill Pottery, DV8s, Miu,Miu, Put a Bow on it and Bourke's Jewellers.
