The 17th International Fashion Lunch in aid of the Rape Crisis Centre was hosted by Miss Candy at the Westin Hotel, Dublin last week.  Guests included Rosanna Davison, Rebecca Burrell, Ken Doherty, Pamela Flood, Gerald Kean and Lisa Murphy.

Getting off to a flying start the event was sponsored this year by Virgin Atlantic and was expanded to the stunning Banking Hall – the exclusive ballroom at the 5-star Westin.  The event commenced with Virgin Atlantic’s signature “Red Head” champagne cocktail reception in The Glass Atrium, before guests are treated to a sumptuous five course meal, served with exclusive wines.

The First Lady of Irish musical Theatre, Rebecca Storm, performed some of her Broadway musical hits with her band before the lunch commenced, while Eurovision winner Paul Harrington and his group entertained the guests into the evening.  Irish designer Dawn Fitzgerald showcased some of her latest creations including her latest bridal wear from her new store in Powerscourt Townhouse.
