Paul Galvin presents his SHELBY A/W collection in association with Dunnes Stores

Former footballing legend, now renowned fashion designer, Paul Galvin launched his new SHELBY A/W collection in association with Dunnes Stores to a full house in the Brandon Hotel, Tralee.  

The show also featured new looks from Lennon Courtney, Savida, Gallery, Padraig Harrington, and main range at Dunnes Stores (for men and women). There was also a Kerry design showcase including multi award winning designers Aoife Hannon, Carol Kennelly, Tina Griffin, Rebakah Wall, Cathy Troth and top accessories designers Holden Leather goods and Kate Martin Silk Scarves.

The evening ended with an outstanding performance by local musician Seamus Harty (remember his name - he is going to be a HUGE star).

We were delighted to produce the night and all female models were from Orla Diffily's award winning model and people agency Upfront Model Management, (and male models Sean and Timmy are also represented by Upfront).

During the interval, top Irish personality and DJ, Louise Duffy played a set. The night was mc’ed by always fabulous Marietta Doran with hair and make up by Ireland's top hair and beauty group - the Sean Taaffe Group.  Staging was by Altec (with thanks to Brian and his very professional crew). Special thanks also to Arron who managed the sound and Barry for the graphics). Helena Halpin seamlessly managed backstage and Laura McSweeny styled all the looks for Dunnes Stores.

 All proceeds went to Lixnaw / Finuge GAA clubs.

In attendance on the evening were Kerry football legends Ogie Moran and Kieran Donaghy, Galway Hurler Joe Canning and former Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan (who was instrumental in organising and the success of the event).
