Don't miss Bair­bre's col­umn 'Midlife' ev­ery Thurs­day in the

De­signer Paul Costel­loe was in full artis­tic mode when he was guest de­signer at the Ir­ish Fash­ion Col­lec­tive 2018 Show at the Con­rad Ho­tel last Fri­day night. His cou­ture pieces pro­vided a wow fi­nale to the show styled by Cather­ine Con­dell, and pro­ceeds went to Saint Joseph’s Shankill, the only care home in Ire­land that solely cares for peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia. Be­fore the show, Paul very gen­er­ously of­fered to bring along his easel and do por­traits of guests. Dur­ing the in­ter­val, Paul’s pe­tite wife, (3) Anne, helped out, dash­ing around and or­gan­is­ing ev­ery­thing so the artist could con­cen­trate on his sit­ters. Paul’s of­fer to do por­traits for €100 each added to the cof­fers of the event which raised over €40k. Well done to de­signer Deb­o­rah Veale who started the ini­tia­tive.

Aldi’s ‘Amaz­ing Christ­mas’ event took place once again in An­drew Rudd’s Med­ley venue, which for the night was fes­tooned with Christ­mas trees and baubles. Guests sam­pled Christ­mas de­lights. Any­one for gin­ger­bread ham this fes­tive sea­son?! Amongst those that were get­ting into the fes­tive mood were (1) RTÉ’s weather ex­pert, Nuala Carey ( left), and Síle Seoige who is Aldi’s Mamia am­bas­sador. Síle’s son, Cathal, turned one in Au­gust.

Four months af­ter cel­e­brat­ing the birth of daugh­ter, Esme, with her hus­band Paul Galvin, (2) Louise Duffy pro­vided the sound­track for the ex­clu­sive Jimmy Choo cock­tail party to show­case the SS19 col­lec­tion to cus­tomers in Brown Thomas.

(4) Joanne Mc­Nally ( left) was pic­tured with Vogue Wil­liams, proud mum of two-month-old baby Theodore, at Lily O’Brien’s ‘Share Wisely’ launch event at

Cliff Town House Bar. Nice to see that Taken Down star Lynn Raf­ferty liked the leop­ard trouser suit — from the Beau­ti­ful South bou­tique in Rath­mines — that Rox­anne Parker styled her in for last week’s cover so much that she looked fab wear­ing it that night on The Ray D’Arcy Show on

RTÉ One.
