At the Pre-Ladies Day Fashion Show which was held recently Kathryn Foley, Manager of Sligo Races announced details of Ladies Day at the Sligo Races which will be held on Thursday, August 9.
Looking forward to the big day Kathryn commented, "Traditionally Ladies Day at Sligo Races is a fantastic event, attracting very large attendances and the style gets better yearly. This year we are delighted to welcome The Glasshouse Hotel on board as our new sponsor. It’s an exciting new sponsorship and we look forward to August 9 and a wonderful competition."
Marietta Doran the resident fashion presenter on TV 3’s Ireland AM, will be the judge on the day with Kathryn adding, "Ladies Day at Sligo Races has become one of the leading social events in the county and it is only fitting that the Glasshouse Hotel should be part of this massive event.
"The packed house in the Glasshouse Hotel on the night of the Fashion Show was testament to the extraordinary interest in Ladies Fashion as local Fashion Houses showcased their latest collections."
Marietta Doran compéred the show and her dynamic and inspirational presentation set the stage from the outset. The professional models from Catwalk Model Agency did the “Racing Look” designs justice as they displayed clothing from Kathleen Fashions, Choice, The Italian Wardrobe, Style Emporium and Marians of Boyle.
Each outfit was coupled with award winning millinery from the collections of WithNora Designs by Marina Scally, Millinery by Mairead, Rachel Feeley, Caitriona King Millinery, Michelle Kearns, Laura Hanlon, Bronagh Marron and The Seasons Hats.
Three fashion designers EmMarie by Emma Curtis, Vivienne O'Connor and Catriona Hanly closed the show with a stunning cat walk collection of day and evening wear coupled with head turning millinery by Paul Stafford.
