Irish designer Peter O’Brien launched his third Autumn Winter collection for Arnotts at a show in the Henry Street store recently.  The capsule collection of 28 styles, showed off Peter's signature style as five models paraded around a square black catwalk and showcased this seasons looks accompanied by the Carolan string quartet.

In attendance on the night were Lorraine Keane, Pamela Flood, Blanaid Ni Choffaigh, Deborah Veale, Clodagh McKenna, Sarah McDonnell, Sonya Lennon, Glenda Gilson, Maria Tecce and Claudia Carroll.

Guests enjoyed Santa Rita Reserva Sauvignon Blanc and Santa Rita Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon along with a selection of canapés from Clodagh’s Kitchen. Guests left with a goody bag featuring gifts from Dior and Appleby jewellers, who will be opening in the Arnotts jewellery hall later this month.

The event also saw a first in Irish innovation being unveiled as Arnotts and Peter O’Brien team up with the Gesaky Interactive Mirror. Hailed as a shoppers dream gadget, the mirror comes equipped with three full length panel mirrors that display images and details from the collection along with the suggested pieces that will finish off a full outfit.
