This week will see the launch of Derry/Londonderry's first ever FASHIONfest and I for one could not be more excited. As a blogger, I have spent numerous hours on the road travelling to fashion shows all over the country and now to have so many right on my own doorstep is super exciting. It also means so much more to me as one of my designs will be making its debut on the catwalk at the Fashion Futures event which will take place on Thursday night at the Maldron Hotel (formerly the Tower Hotel).
The events kick off in style on Wednesday night with the amazing launch party, followed by the Industry Focus workshop on Thursday which will gather together some of the biggest names in fashion. The Fashion Futures event takes place on Thursday night, this is a competition for both models and designers and I cannot wait to compete myself.
Friday is the wedding fashion showcase and the whole event finishes off on Saturday evening with the designer showcase. There will also be numerous pop-up shops and workshops going on throughout the city over the course of the 4 days.
For any more info on prices or events just scroll down through the pictures as I have been sure to photograph each page of the brochure just for you - It is sure to be an exciting few days and it is so exciting to have it all happening so close to home!
