Guy Clothing, KODE and K & G Kids held a fashion show earlier this month in the Tullamore Court Hotel, to raise funds for Embrace Farm and Offaly Domestic Violence Support Services.
This year ‘The Show’ was back and it was even bigger and better, having pulled out all the stops to make as much money as possible for the two chosen charities.
Guy Clothing’s Ambassador, Irish country singer Mike Denver was a huge attraction to ‘The Show’. Mike modelled and also sang on the night along with country star Olivia Douglas.
A crowd pleaser for the ladies on the night was watching five time GAA All Star winner Sean Cavanagh of Tyrone and two time GAA All Star winner Conor McManus of Monaghan strut their stuff on the catwalk. Sean and Conor are grand ambassadors of Benetti Menswear.
Another special guest on the night was rugby legend Ollie Campbell.
On the night some of Offaly's local celebrities stepped out on stage. Joe and Shane Dooley two hurling legends took to the catwalk along with the man that’s used to the middle of the field, GAA Referee Brian Gavin. It was a night of GAA men as Offaly Manager, Pat Flanagan joined all the other models on stage to showcase a range of fashion from Guy Clothing.
Girl power also rocked on the night. Tullamore and Connacht rugby player, Ciara Farrel swapped her football boots for high heels as she took to the catwalk.
Offaly Camogie All Star Nominee, Tina Hannon gave the hurl a break and joined the other models as they modelled a range of clothing from KODE.
Model and Lady of the Land 2016, Margaret Bolton who is not shy of the catwalk modelled like she knows how on the night.
Former Miss Offaly, Tara McCormack took to the spotlight as she showcased a range of casual and formal wear from KODE.
Also on the night we had the first Offaly Rose to reach the Dome, the lovely Emma Kirwan giving us a helping hand.
With over 25 kids on the night, these bunch most certainly stole the show, with their performance on the catwalk and those heartbreaking smiles.
‘The Show’ was a huge success due to all the hard work put in by all who helped in any way possible. We look forward to year number three as a range of celebrities have already made contact to forward their help for 'The Show' 2017. Planning is under way already as we want 'The Show' 2017 to be the biggest it can be. Keep an eye out on our Facebook pages for upcoming news on this event.
