Loreto students stage a fashion frenzy in aid of Wexford Hospice Homecare
Most teens would pay to snap their teacher in a fuzzy onesie and thanks to three transition year students, the girls in Loreto have had that chance.
Students Eimear Fahey, Cliona Foley and Isabel Allen organised a sell-out fashion show in Whites recently and encouraged students and teachers to strut their stuff for a cause. Though she said that the show took 'an enormous amount of effort', Eimear feels it was definitely worth it as they raised over €350 for Wexford Hospice Homecare.
'Everything ran smoothly and we had a great night,' explained the transition year student from Our Lady's Island. 'Teachers modelled Christmas jumpers and onesies. I think they enjoyed it as much as the students.'
Hosted by Barbara Stack of Xpose, the show saw fashions from Pennies, Pamela Scott, The Loft and Charles Pierce grace the catwalk. All of the clothes were gathered by the three girls themselves, who decided that it would be a good idea to do 'something different' in the school.
Guests were also entertained by music from Emily Downey, while a raffle attracted the attention of many seeking to try their luck.
The event was organised by the girls as part of their mini company project. After racking their brains for ideas, they decided that a fashion show would be their best bet.
'We wanted to organise something original and nobody had done a fashion show in a very long time,' said Eimear.
