The official launch of Farrier & Draper was a party to remember. Guests enjoyed a range of cocktails including the signature Farrier Fizz. Canapés showcased the authentic Italian style of the La Cucina restaurant with a late night serving of pizza being particularly popular. DJs, live music by Spring Break and a roving sax player set the festive mood, with fashion sketches by Conor Merriman creating a queue of ladies, and some very fashionable men too!
Guests included Samantha Mumba, who is home in Ireland for the summer, Liam Cunningham, who was much in demand for selfies with the many Game of Thrones fans, Glen Power, drummer with The Script and actress Jenny Dixon of Fair City. Adding to the style were Gail Kaneswarren, stylist Cathy O’Connor, the Bannerton sisters, Avril and Sharon, new Miss Ireland Sacha Livingstone, former Dublin Rose, Aisling Finnegan and model Michelle McGrath. Creative and media types were out in force with Anthony Nilan of TV3’s 7 O’Clock Show, photographer Alex Sapienza and actress Florence Ordesh. La Cucina manager Giorgio Casari welcomed fellow foodies wine writer Ed Smith, Kevin Ecock of The Chop House, Declan Maxwell of Luna, Phil Costello of Aungier Danger and Colm McNamara of Pablo Picante.
