The stunning surroundings of the Winter Garden at the National Gallery played host to the 2012 Trinity College Samsung Fashion Show.
Guests in attendance included TV Presenter Darren Kennedy, Gary Twohig, General Manager of Samsung Ireland and glamorous RTE weathergirl Audrey McGrath. Stylists Courtney Smith and Sonja Mohlich were spotted chatting through the key looks from the show with Laura McDermott, Trinity Fashion Society chairperson.
The members of the Trinity Fashion Society took to the catwalk in support of Turn2Me.org. This year, Samsung came on board as sponsor which allowed the entire proceeds of the show go to the Irish online mental health and suicide prevention charity.
The students designed and produced the fashion show, which carried the theme of ‘Dark Romance’ taking inspiration from key winter catwalk trends including, gothic and lace, vintage rock ‘n’ roll and opulent baroque styles. Dramatic make-up was inspired by the current gothic trend created by LA Creative Academy with each look completed with a striking head piece from top Irish Milliner Edel Ramberg.
