Cork Fashion struts its stuff in St. Peter’s Cork
The Mercedes Benz MSL Cork Fashion Week brings “The Best of Cork” to St. Peter’s Cork.
Cork, Ireland. St. Peter’s Cork which is one of the city’s oldest buildings was chosen to host “The Best of Cork” event in the Mercedes Benz MSL Cork Fashion Week 2016 line up. The event took place on Saturday the 22nd of October in this modern venue located on North Main Street, Cork. Now in its 9th year the Mercedes Benz MSL Cork Fashion Week has become a well-known fixture in the diary of fashion lovers all over Ireland.
This wonderful event showcased the best of local independent boutiques from across Cork. The venue was styled by Meadows & Byrne at Blarney Woolen Mills on the night with a VIP & press mezzanine floating above the main floor. The main fashion focus were the Autumn/Winter collections now available in local stores around Cork. Some of the boutiques included Blush Boutique, Vanilla, Azure Jewellery and many more. DJ on the night was the well-known and local legend Stevie G. Eileen O’Shea Venue Manager from St. Peter’s Cork commented “St. Peter’s Cork is ideal for events like this, we have capacity for 300 people, split levels, private side garden and a gated street entrance. While the building itself is medieval, our interior is contemporary and ideal for a stylish event such as Cork Fashion Week.”
Cork Fashion week was established in 2008 by Lockdown Model Agency directors Emer O’Mahony and Vivienne McCarthy. The week sees a number of events been run across Cork to celebrate the creativity and innovation that is being produced from Cork’s fashion graduates and designers. Realising that Cork City lacked a creative platform to celebrate and promote the incredible fashion design talent that was graduating from the city’s colleges as well as home grown talent, the team set about establishing a week of events that has grown to attract national and international attention and acclaim.
St. Peter’s Cork is a public exhibition and event centre located in Cork city’s historical area along North Main St. The venue is an adaptable space that is ideal for a range of events including product launches, conventions, performances, private events and also weddings. It is open 6 days a week free to the public to come in and enjoy the exhibitions on display. For more information visit www.stpeterscork.ie or get in touch at email@example.com
