Samsung Young Designer of the Year #DFF

Last Thursday night I attended the Young Designer of the Year event during Dublin Fashion Festival. I won the tickets through a tweeting comp on Twitter and I had a plus one so I brought my friend Lorraine along with me. 
It was held outside the Bank of Ireland on College Green opposite Trinity. The whole setup was aaaaaamaaaazing - purple and blue lighting, free baileys and wine and booming music made the atmosphere very cool. 
Lenon Courtney - that's how I'll label them from now on - MC'd the show with their usual ease and humour. The finalist's designs took their place on the runway first then a series of looks from Lenon Courtney, Arnotts, Kilkenny and the Design Center took the stage while the judges decided on a winner.
Here are  a few pics from the night and my favourite designs from the finalists. A special congratulations to Claire Lynam who won!

Here's what I wore to the event. It's a pretty summery outfit but my God it was warm! It's all so "in" now to be wrapping shirts around your waist but I thought I'd make a lil change and tie my blazer instead. I whipped my pink pvc skirt out too for another wear, you can see it in another outfit HERE. Lemme know whatcha think in the comments box down below.

Bralet and skirt: Topshop /// Heels: ZARA /// clutch: ASOS /// Striped blazer : Pennys/ Primark
