The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS - By SI­MON BROUDER

TOP Ir­ish model Alan­nah Beirne is set to be the star at­trac­tion at this year’s Rose of Tralee Fash­ion Show.

Beirne will star as the spe­cial guest on the cat­walk, while Erika Fox – the Glen­beigh born fash­ion and life­style blog­ger –will choose the best-dressed lady.

Erika is cur­rently based in New York. Through blog­ging, she has worked with brands such as Tom Ford, Google, Land Rover USA, Vera Wang and Sam­sung.

The Zip­yard Ire­land man­ag­ing direc­tor Caro­line Wal­lace will co-judge the De­signer of the Year Awards with Erika Fox, and she will present the win­ning de­signer with the €1,000 cash prize along with tro­phy.

Alan­nah Beirne, a fi­nal­ist in Bri­tain’s Next Top Model and a celebrity par­tic­i­pant in RTÉ’s Danc­ing with the Stars, is no stranger to the Fes­ti­val as she is the daugh­ter of the 1983 Rose of Tralee Brenda Hy­land.

Kerry na­tive Tina Grif­fin, last year’s win­ner of the De­signer of the Year Award, will co-cre­ate four unique looks with award-win­ning milliner Carol Ken­nelly. Th­ese will be ex­clu­sively mod­elled by Alan­nah.

Make-up for the show will be ap­plied by the skilled team at CH The Mall Tralee; Cathri­ona’s Hair Group, Castle­gre­gory, Tralee and Din­gle will style the mod­els’ hair; and Foot­prints Show Bou­tique, Lis­towel will sup­ply the shoes on the night.

The or­gan­is­ers of the fash­ion show – which is usu­ally one of the most pop­u­lar events at the Rose of Tralee Fes­ti­val – said they wanted to give the event a make-over this year with “a ma­jor em­pha­sis on pro­vid­ing the ul­ti­mate girls’ night out”.

The Fash­ion Show will be on Sun­day Au­gust 19.
