On Tuesday night 27th March, a fundraising fashion show for the Harold’s Cross hospice was held in the Swan Centre. It was a 1920’s themed night, organised by Rathmines Senior College.
Students from the college erected a catwalk in the main mall of the shopping centre. They provided numerous fabulous models, who paraded up and down the spiral staircase and catwalk, sporting fashion and jewellery from the shops in the centre.
We had our own section, where some very handsome guys wore a selection of our designer frames and sunglasses.
A candle-lit spiral staircase, a pianist, and feathered 1920’s style table decorations set the scene. Wine, nibbles and sweet treats were served free of charge upstairs.
Unlike some of the larger shopping centres, the Swan Centre is personal, quirky, and oozes character. A line from a song springs to mind… ‘Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name’.
It was the best night we had in a long time, and Rathmines was buzzing! We’ll let you know when the next event is organised… Do yourself a favour, and don’t miss it!!
