Followers of glitzy fashion turned out for Christmas at Lara recently. Lara’s gowns have graced the red carpets of every celebrity event in Ireland over the last decade and her boutiques have seen more starlets and stylists, screen sirens and catwalk queens than most.

The boutique is a treasure chest of jewel box colours and designer labels such as Forever Unique, La Femme, New Couture, Love, Muddz and many more. But Lara is not just about all that glitters, she also carries an eclectic mix of exciting day wear with Robin Hood and Mett Jeans teamed up with soft and luxurious jackets and sky high boots, blazers and tops adorned with skulls and crystals and unique carefully selected pieces for that perfect capsule wardrobe.

Landing Katie Price’s new label, Day 22 exclusively in Ireland has been yet another coup for Lara. Created by Katie Price, aka Jordan, and Lamis Khamis, Day 22 is a fashionable and stylish collection that is comfortable, edgy and of quality.

Guests enjoyed cocktails made with new Dubliner whiskey liqueur now cruising social circles, bubbles and bites from Pichet and tunes from DJ Owen Clarke. Among the crowd were Miss Ireland Holly Carpenter, models Hazel O’Sullivan and Tiffany Stanley, Alison Canavan, Animal A&E presenter Andrea Hayes and singer Claire Malone.
