NCAD Fashion Show Launch

Pin It Now!

Dress - Zara
Boots - Mango
Belt - Off a dress from Penneys

I wore this dress to the NCAD 2012 Fashion Show launch last night (hence the title of today's blog) where I met some of the fashion designers who are about to graduate. Most of the ones I spoke to seemed so young and all heading off to London and Paris to intern with desigers for the summer. I was very jealous (of their upcoming summer adventure but also because at 22 they were all so confident in knowing what they wanted to do). When I graduated many many years ago all I knew was that I needed a job! It's amazing to think one day some of these young designers will be as famous as Philip Treacy, Orla Kiely, etc...Some of their designs were on display too.

Track of the Day: The Gossip - Get a Job
New album out, new song. I think the song fits the night that was in it.  I just love Beth Ditto. I can imagine her in this last design. The new album sounds very different to their other stuff. This song is the stand out one for me at the moment but I only just bought the album last night so no doubt will discover some more gems on it.

Have a great weekend!
