The Holman-Lee Model Agency is one of Ireland’s longest-established modelling agencies in Ireland. Beautiful models from the HL agency were strutting their stuff in the Fashion Show. On Fashion Friday there were two fashion shows running in Arthur’s Quay Shopping Centre. The first was at 12:30 and the second show ran at 3:30

There was so many beautiful ‘looks’ and outfits showcased during the fashion show. From Tippe-Canoe to Stitch to beautiful bridal gowns from Lilac Rose Bridal and many more.

Lilac Rose Bridal showcased some stunning bridal gowns. First the ‘blush pink trumpet lace gown with pearl embellishment’ then the stunning ‘t-length lace and tulle dress with illusion lace back detail’.

Caroline Mitchell Knitwear was one of the Irish designers showcased. ‘Every piece of Caroline’s knitwear is knit on hand flat machines and patiently cut by hand’.

Miss Limerick Nollaig  was also present at Fashion Friday, picking out the best dressed male and best dressed Lady, which was sponsored by Newbridge Silverware. I had the absolute pleasure of talking to Miss Limerick and I even got a sneaky pic!

Starting from the top floor of Arthur’s Quay and descending gracefully from the escalator the models floated towards the awaiting crowd on the ground floor. Here the models met with two ascending steps leading them onto the Fashion Friday  platform. To return to the top floor the models walked up the stairs and gave us some amazing photo opportunities stopping and  posing at the half way point.

I attended the 3:30 fashion show. The sun was beaming down through the glass ceiling of Arthur’s Quay creating a light and bright atmosphere. The escalator was a perfect catwalk for the models as it was mirrored on one side the entire way down.
