I will admit I have been a bit of a stress head for the last few weeks and to be tucked up in my bed with not a care in the world knowing that last night was more than I ever could have expected and more is the best feeling in the world right now. Everyone involved worked so hard to help us pull off a stylish evening worthwhile. Without everyone we wouldn't have been able to help such a worthy cause. Therefore I must say a HUGE thank you to absolutely everyone who came to the show last night and to all that were involved in the evening.
I will start by thanking all the sponsors who provided us with raffle prizes and prizes for the best dressed winner, who by the way looked incredible. I big thank you to Miss Donegal Orlagh McGee who kindly came last night and chose the best dressed winner.
I must say thank you to Sabrina Kelly Artist who provided all the posters and tickets for the event, she worked so hard and is so talented.
A special thanks to Niamh Greaney from Lids Lashes who provided a selection of Lids lashes for each gift bag, the Value Centre who provided the bottles of water, to Gormley's Centra, Centra Dunfanaghy, Dunnes Stores and Gallaghers Foodstore who all provided chocolates for each gift bag. I would also like to thank Boots for sponsoring leaflets and samples, Sculpt Studios for providing leaflets and samples for each gift bag also. The Body Shop kindly provided a free make over for each bag and DV8 so generously provided 15% off vouchers for each bag.
All of these small gifts helped make the evening that more special and gave the guests a unique experience so thank you all so much for your help. It is the little things that made the evening so amazing.
All the shop stalls at the event deserve a big thanks for attending, Chords For Care, Black Opal Cases, McCullaghs Jewellers and I Want Candy. I hope you all enjoyed the night.
I must say one major thank you to Menary's, Vera Moda, DV8, Only, Oasis, Topshop, Quiz, Awear, McAuliffe's, White Rabbit Exchange and Ciara K Gallagher as if it wasn't for your generosity there wouldn't have been style to showcase. So thank you guys you made the evening one of the most stylish evenings Donegal has ever seen!
My little pretties, my girls, my models, you made us so proud strutting your stuff down the runway. You all looked beautiful and showed off the clothes with class. Thank you for your patience and hard work. Excuse crazy Ella by the way!
The hair creations by Patrick Gildea were high fashion and his team worked extremely hard to help us make the evening a stylish success. I'll definitely be going there next time I'm in need of a new me!
The make up by Sculpt Studios Cosmetics was flawless and edgy which finished the girls looks off perfectly. Thanks to Siobhan and the girls for their hard work and talent.
A big thanks to Vilar Etc, Sean and Peter who provided the lighting and sound for the evening. You really worked hard to cater to all our needs and we truly appreciate all your work and dedication to the event.
Deirdre McLaughlin you sang beautifully and finished the night off in style. Thanks so much for being a part of the evening.
How can I not say one HUGE thank you to Bridin, the host of the show. You were amazing. You held the night together like super-glue. Without you we would have been lost. Thank you Brídín for everything!
Last but not least I have to say thank you to Alannah McGhee, my rock. Without her the show wouldn't have happened. She helped me through the whole thing. She basically organised the whole show. She is incredible!
I must mention that with your fashion show ticket you can get 10% off all clothing shown from McAuliffes, Dunfanaghy - don't miss out on such a wonderful opportunity. Go in-store for details.
I hope I haven't missed anyone out.
