NEW York fashion designer, Don O’Neill will showcase Red Carpet gowns from THEIA’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection at the 2014 Rose of Tralee Autumn Winter Fashion Show.

The Kerry-native will be among a star-studded line-up of designers and boutiques in the Festival Dome on Sunday, August 17.

This year’s event, presented in association with The Kerryman newspaper, and produced by Celia Holman Lee, will be the style highlight of the year.

“The Rose of Tralee International Autumn/Winter Fashion Showcase will provide an opportunity for 1600 people to view the first of the Autumn/Winter Collections from over 40 designers and boutiques including The Design Centre, Dublin, Synan O’Mahony Designer and Don O’Neill Creative Director of Theia, New York,” said Celia Holman Lee.

Another key aspect of the annual show will be the exciting Rose of Tralee Fashion Designer Awards 2014.

This is an awards ceremony to salute all the Irish design talent that is emerging in Ireland at the moment. Renowned designer Aideen Bodkin one of Ireland’s most successful designers will be on hand as Head Judge for this award.

“Fashion in Ireland is going from strength to strength as Irish women continue to refine and cultivate their ‘look’ while still experimenting and having fun with fashion,” said Don O’Neill, who will take part in his third successive fashion show.

“Local established designers as well as the crop of up and coming designers are providing unique and original clothes that are fashion forward and exciting. With so many weddings, race meetings, fashion luncheons, fundraisers and awards shows,” he said.

Don O’Neill has just completed his Resort 2015 Collection which was favourably reviewed by Women’s Wear Daily and well received by the buyers. Four actresses wore THEIA on the TONY AWARDS Red Carpet, Cassadee Pope (winner of Season 3’s The Voice USA) wore THEIA on the Red Rarpet at the CMT Awards and American rock star Melissa Etheridge’s wife Linda Wallem wore THEIA at their star studded wedding in California.

The Festival Dome is the ideal venue to stage an event of this magnitude for fashionistas who will travel from all over Munster to see style, elegance and sophistication on the longest catwalk in Ireland.

One lucky person in the audience will leave the venue on the night as the Best Dressed Lady with a prize valued at €1,000 from The Loop at Dublin and Cork Airports.

CH The Mall Tralee will apply the make-up, the hair-styling for the event will be by Cathrionas Hair Salon, Castlegregory and the shoes will be by Perfect Pairs, Listowel.

The show will commence with a Wine Reception in the Pavilion Dome before the main event gets underway at 8pm.

Entertainment on the night will feature a powerful performance from local singing sensations, the Three Os.
