Lancôme's preview of a new range at The Exchequer Room at Fallon & Byrne was a big occasion recently.  It was the private unveiling of the Lancome Show range, which is the result of an exceptional collaboration with one of the most highly-acclaimed names in fashion: Alber Elbaz.

The Alber Elbaz Show for Lancome sees this fashion genius create four unique outfits for four legends of Lancôme make-up: Alber Elbaz lends his unmistakable style to four worldwide bestselling Lancôme mascaras.

Guests on the evening included the glowing Claire Byrne, who recently announced her pregnancy. Expecting her first child in October, Claire is engaged to  Gerry Scollan . Xpose Series Producer, Debbie O’Donnell stepped out, leaving baby Sam at home for the first evening. Karen Koster joined her on the evening. Karen, who is getting married next month to John Maguire, spoke excitedly about her forthcoming nuptuals.

Another bride in the room was Dyane Connor, the TV3 and her fiancé flew to Italy last week only to fall more deeply in love with their chosen venue.  Avila Lipsett explained her new venuture, The Black Door, is proving extremely popular with the ‘in’ crew and over 30’s to an excited Nuala Carey who promised to visit in the near future. 

And of course top beauty experts were keen to get a first glimpse of the collection that will be showcased to the world from mid-June and available to buy in department stores in Ireland from July 1.
