Glitz and Glam at The Europe Hotel

Last night I attended the Kerry Fashion Week Awards at The Europe Hotel, Killarney. And was it one glamorous night! I was so honoured to be a finalist in the "Makeup Artist of The Year" category. Myself & Ciara had a fun afternoon of prepping for a great night ahead!

A quick trip to Cathriona Rohan Hair Salon in Castlegregory to sort the locks! Thanks so much to you & Grace for doing a super job as always!

Hair and makeup done and we're ready to head to The Europe Hotel.





A champagne drinks reception started off the night followed by a yummy three course dinner. The designers showcased their work throughout the night and I also got to meet some of the best in the fashion industry.

I was so happy to meet all my Cork friends also..

Ciara with Marilyn, Pat Walker & her daughter Heather

Pat with Mei Ling Tong.

The last time I met Mei Ling was in Cork a few years ago for a shoot which was her first one ever! Since then she has moved to Dublin, starting blogging (Darling Buds Of Mei), signed to 1st Option Models and works PR for the amazing Umit Kutluk. Such a talented and beautiful lady. Great catching up with you X


With the fabulous Caroline Matthews of Caroline Atelier Design


With Agne (check out her jewellery which she designed & made!) and the gorgeous Ann Marie O Leary.



The night finished off with champers and lots of dancing... 




Thanks for another glamorous night Kerry Fashion Week!
