The Oasis 'Shoot Style Smile' competition which fast tracked three young fashion talents up the career ladder has blossomed again this Spring.

One of last year's winners, teenage photographer Alex Sheridan, shot the Oasis spring summer '15 range in Dublin and was reunited with Krystal Mahon, a model from Cork who won the 'smile' element of the talent search run by the high street brand Oasis as part of their 20 years in Ireland anniversary last year.

Alex, Krystal along with stylist Laura O'Brien were chosen from hundreds of entrants in last year's nationwide grassroot talent contest to shoot, style and star in the Oasis Christmas campaign 2014, run in conjunction with Ireland AM on TV3.

Their winning photographs featuring party wear went up in the windows of Oasis stores around the country and to unveil the SS15 collection. The brand brought the three back together again for Krystal to be photographed wearing various pieces from the brand's new SS15 which is all about separates.

Pretty floral prints abound alongside navel grazing shell tops showing a hint of midriff.

The season sees the return of the summer trousers featuring fluted martini-glass shapes and voluminous culottes, modelled here by Krystal.

Khaki is the new neutral for Oasis and sits back against monochromes and a strong blue story which runs from cornflower to cobalt and navy.

This time last year Alex Sheridan was at school studying for his Leaving Cert. Since winning the competition in November, the 19-year-old opened his own photography studio on Dublin's Talbot Street and he is looking forward to a long career in photography.

Laura O'Brien (26) is a passionate fashion stylist and visual merchandiser and has assisted top stylist Cathy O'Connor on fashion shows, Xpose slots and photo-shoots.

Model Krystal Mahon (20) moved to Dublin in 2013 to study Information Technology in CCT and she works part-time as a retail assistant.

Krystal has done some test shoots and worked with KISS magazine but her dream is to be a working model and actress.
