"It has been such a wonderful day out as always at The Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, only made better by my fabulous prizes! I can’t wait to book my trip; pampering in the K Club, luxury travel to Dubai, shopping ‘til I drop and unwinding at the Jumeriah Creekside Hotel – what could be better!”

Suzanne is no stranger to winning in the racing style stakes.  She won Best Dressed at Galway in 2011 wearing a simple red vintage dress accessorised with a 'big talking' Lina Stein hat featuring pearls and handmade silk roses.  in 2012 she won €25,000 at the Moyglare Stud Stakes for her outfit.  Her prize also took her to the White Turf races held on the snow in St Moritz in February and the sales consultant also won €5,000 of Newbridge Silverware presented to her by Gay Byrne.

Suzanne McGarry from Sligo scooped €25,000 prize.

Of her present win, Chanelle McCoy added, “The Judges and I loved seeing so many stylish women out today at The Curragh. I discovered some great young and new Irish designers and milliners so a big thanks to today’s attendees who showcased the very best of Irish style.

"We were looking for someone who let their personal style shine through and of course brought some colour in to the mix. While it was a hard decision we all agreed Suzanne was our number one choice.”
