City Hall welcomed Ireland’s fashion elite on Wednesday 12th of August in collaboration with DublinTown for the launch of the 2015 Dublin Fashion Festival. On the night, style icon Pippa O’Connor Ormond was announced as the face of Dublin Fashion Festival. Speaking of her involvement in the festival, Pippa commented: “I’m thrilled to be working with DublinTown on this year’s Dublin Fashion Festival. Being the face of the Festival is an honour and is something I wanted to do for couple of years now, I’m so excited to have been asked and to be a part of Dublin Fashion Festival 2015. I have always championed Irish style and I love the charm and energy of Dublin fashion. Nothing compares to shopping in the capital. There’s always something different to see and experience so I’m really looking forward to what the festival has in store, I’ve no doubt that it will be a fantastic week.”
Guests at the launching event were treated to delicious canapés and on departure they received a gift bag crammed with goodies including a voucher for Penneys, Arnotts cosmetics, Brooke and Shoals candles, Only vouchers, delicious Propercorn treats and complimentary after party drinks in The Meeting House.
