Re-Dress ‘Better Fashion Week’ kicks off tomorrow-amazing. I’m going on holiday to France tomorrow-also, amazing. What’s less cool is the fact that they are happening at the same time. I’ve always been a bit fan of Re-Dress and support them when I can, so was gutted to tell them that I couldn’t be part of what looks set to be their best yet… check out below for some of the cool events throughout the week and go here for details of film showings, pop -up shop and more!
Theatre of Fashion: The wonderful Eilis Boyle sits in the other seat when she interviews this years Better Fashion Week highlights Andrea Crews in an industry discussion ‘The Theatre of Fashion’-Joanne Hynes and Aisling Farinella will also be sitting in on the discussion.
Fashion Mentoring Sessions: I did these last year and was blown away by the appetite for knowledge amongst people trying to get into the industry. Mentors read like a who’s who in the Irish Fashion world-Constance Harris, Peter O’Brien, Andreas Petterson, Aoife Wassar, Sive O’Brien and many more. Book quickly though if you want to meet your hero!
The Art of Fashion: Fashion Editor of the Sunday Independent Constance Harris, speaks to sculptural artist Úna Burke and internationally renowned painter Helen Steele on the validity of fashion as an art form. Simone Rocha and Sonya Lennon will be there too so this is definitely one to book asap.
