Fash­ion fans out in style for an eye­ful of Paul Galvin’s lat­est threads


The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - FRONT PAGE -

PAUL Galvin in­ter­changed his fash­ion smarts with his sport­ing ge­nius in aid of his home club as hun­dreds of stylish Kerry folk gath­ered at the Bran­don Ho­tel on Fri­day to savour his lat­est de­signs.

The fundrais­ing fash­ion show in aid of Fin­uge/Lix­naw GAA opened with Galvin’s lat­est range for Dunnes Store, Shelby.

As with its pre­de­ces­sor lines Shelby is in­spired by the BBC smash hit gang­ster pe­riod drama Peaky Blin­ders. And if Fri­day’s re­ac­tion is any­thing to go by, it will be every bit as suc­cess­ful as Galvin’s prior out­ings for Dunnes.

It is now hoped the event will be­come an an­nual one with Paul Galvin keen to see fel­low Kerry-na­tive fash­ion de­sign­ers given a reg­u­lar plat­form. He was joined on the night in show­cas­ing cre­ations by ris­ing and es­tab­lished Kerry fash­ion stars like Tina Grif­fin, Aoife Han­non, Carol Ken­nelly and the House of Del­phine; all putting the King­dom on the sar­to­rial map.
