Another successful week in Belfast fashion…

Mar '08
FASHIONWEEK organiser Cathy Martin said: "Wow, what a week! We are really delighted to have such fabulous support from the public and our audience members who seemed to love the mix of high street brands and designer names from our local independent boutiques. Its not just about sending models up and down a catwalk, this is serious business for the retailers and designers that take part. And of course, we inject a huge element of pizzazz to create fashion theatre that our audiences have come to expect of us.”

Irish footwear designer Anita Flavin took her latest collection of shoes to the catwalk once again. Her 'Minette' shoes, favourites with leading ladies such Shirley McClaine, Mischa Barton, BBC presenters Christine Bleakley and Zoe Salmon, RTE's Pamela Flood and local celebrities such as Miss Northern Ireland Melissa Patton and UTV girl Alison Fleming were worn by FASHIONWEEK models throughout all the catwalk shows.

Michael Quinn, hair stylist to the stars, was official hair partner this season creating signature styles which added that finishing touch to the catwalk. Together with Paddy McGurgan's chic and glittering make up, the glamour team is sure to put together fantastic looks that will top off the fashion parade.

Karen Anderson, Brand Manager for West Coast Cooler, the fashionista's favourite drink, said “The theme of this year's FASHIONWEEK is 'fresh fashion' so our refreshing West Coast Cooler is a perfect match for NorthernIreland's original style event. West Coast Cooler is the ultimate accessory for any night out with the girls and FASHIONWEEK is a great opportunity for guests to catch up with friends, enjoy a fabulous line up of fashion, all whilst sipping on a chilled West Coast Cooler.”
