Galway City Fashion Fiesta

I will be completely finished College this Monday. Our end of year Fashion Show (GTI Fashion Fiesta) has just passed and I literally haven't had the time to create this post hence the lateness. I have had so much positive feedback from everyone about the show so thank you from all the fashion students at GTI.
I couldn't find a model to wear my recycled dress so I modeled it myself; of corse this meant I didn't actually see the show which was a little odd since I have spent so many months imagining every little detail. Also something awful happened!! My beloved camera just decided to pack up on me so I'm camera-less; I feel like I have lost limb. I couldn't take any photographs so for more images visit 'Galway City Fashion Fiesta' on Facebook. This was a charity event and all proceeds went to Ability West. A big thanks to everyone involved and everyone who supported the event.

We had a Tea Party themed launch with cakes, tea, live windows and masquerade make-up demonstrations by the make-up artistry students.

  1. Looks like a great event, so jealous of you doing that course, my friend did a similar one in Dublin. I think by the time I get home I'll be too old to go back to college :(

  2. Why where are you? Sorry this comment got lost in amungst emails and emails. I really enjoyed my course it was pretty intense but really fun.
