The annual Irish Fashion Exposure - Spring Summer 2012 event in association with The Design Centre was a sellout event for the third year running.  Fashion lovers filled the Stephen’s Green Hibernian Club for a fashion show opened by Sonya Lennon of “Off the Rails” followed by lunch.

The concept of this exciting show is to create a relaxed environment for fashion lovers to enjoy a top-of-the line fashion show and have the opportunity to place orders and interact with the designers on a more personal level.  Some of Ireland's leading designers including John Rocha, Philip Tracy, Roisín Linnane, Umit Kutluk, Synan O’Mahony and Sean Byrne were featured.

The event also aims to raise funds for the Order of St. Lazarus Ireland, a charity engaged in humanitarian work with children and the invalided and those who cannot help themselves.  Well known guests included designers Claire O'Connor, Roisín Linnane, stylist Marietta Doran, Caroline Sleiman of Moet, Caroline Harrington and Liz O'Donnell.
