In Ireland, we have reason to celebrate a uniquely creative penchant for fashion and design.
For the past six years, Tralee has become the epicenter of this Irish passion for fashion, as Kerry Fashion Week takes hold. This year the highly regarded event will run from Monday 3rd to Saturday 8th of March 2014.
Kerry Fashion Week is the most anticipated fashion event in the country, which brings together a colourful array of creative talent from all over Ireland and which showcases and awards the best designers in the Irish industry.
The platform of Irish fashion has raised some stirring and influential names in the last few years; Fiona Mangan, Natalie B. Coleman, Colin Horgan, and Simone Rocha are to name but a few industry greats.
The prestigious KFW Irish Fashion industry award is one of numerous events of the week which will celebrate this strong Irish craftsmanship.
This year the fashion industry awards have personal significance to my work as a designer; I am excited to share that I have been nominated as a finalist for the KFW Irish accessory designer of the Year 2014.
Keep a close eye on the Kerry Fashion Week website, www.kerryfashionweek.com, for tickets and announcements.
