Tommy Hilfiger hosted its annual summer shopping evening in the Grafton Street store in association with The Gloss Magazine, featuring models showcasing the Summer collections, including the preppy Surf Shack capsule collection.

Guests were treated to mini nautical themed canapés of lobster burgers with American relish and cones of beer battered fish and chunky chips with prosecco and cloudy lemonade for refreshment.

Acoustic tunes courtesy of Irish folk duo Cry Monster Cry greeted guests as they arrived whilst DJ Maura Murphy spun some summer tracks on the second the third floors and caricaturist Niall O’Loughlin kept guests captivated with lifelike personal sketches.

Guests enjoying the Tommy Hilfiger vibe included DJ and model Vogue Williams, Dr Eva Orsmond, TV presenters Kamal Ibrahim and Diana Bunici, Virginia Macari, Declan Leavy and the Ambassador of Morrocco H.E. Anas Khales. Paul Ronan and wife Monica also attended sans daughter Saoirse, who is busy finishing a film in the U.S.
