IT’S set to be the fashion event of the year in Kerry with hundreds expected at The Kerryman Rose of Tralee Fashion Show in the Festival Dome on Sunday, August 16.

The main attraction this year will be a salute to Irish designers, Irish fashion and Irish craft to celebrate Irish design nationally and internationally by the Rose of Tralee.

Last year’s event was an incredibly stylish occasion (click here, here, here and here for our photos from the 2014 event)  and  this year’s fashion extravaganza, which was launched by Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh in the picturesque Tralee Town Park, will feature all the top boutiques and stores from the Munster region, including top Irish milliners.

The producer of The Kerryman Rose of Tralee Fashion Show, Celia Holman-Lee said: “Keen fashionistas from Kerry and beyond who love style and want a lesson in what to wear for Autumn Winter know that the Rose of Tralee Fashion Showcase is the place to be in August. The 70’s are still influencing the collections especially in coats and jackets and one of the must-have trends is the cape which will feature heavily in the coming season.”

The Rose of Tralee Fashion Showcase is different from another fashion show because it is the biggest fashion event in Ireland, due to the sheer size of the catwalk, the production, the amount of models, along with the huge number of participating boutiques/stores and designers.

Maria Walsh, the Rose of Tralee, will Judge the Best Dressed Lady Competition for which the winner will receive a Luxury Prize valued at €1,000 sponsored by The Loop at Dublin and Cork Airports.

The Best Dressed Lady will win a Clarins Mini-Facial and MAC Make-up make-over for two, a champagne lunch for two at Flutes Champagne Bar at Dublin Airport, a Shopping Voucher for The Loop to the value of €300 and overnight accommodation in a Dublin hotel including dinner for two.

An added dimension to this year’s event will feature a collection entitled Celia Holman Lee – Style Icon showcasing some of Celia Holman-Lee’s collection of beautiful clothes that she has kept since she first took to the catwalk at the age of 15.

“I was truly honoured this year to be asked to be part of the Year of Design at the Hunt Museum earlier this year where I showcased many of the pieces from some of the great Irish Designers of the time and I am delighted to show some of these designs at the Rose of Tralee Fashion Show,” said Celia.

Make-up for the show will be applied by the skilled team at CH The Mall Tralee, while Cathriona’s Hair Salon in Castlegregory will style the models on the night.

Internationally acclaimed opera singer, Amanda Neri will open the show which will be preceded by a Wine Reception in The Rose Pavilion.
