The 18th annual Virgin Atlantic International Fashion Lunch in aid of the Rape Crisis Centre
was hosted at the luxury Westin Hotel, Dublin.  Dawn Fitzgerald showcased a winter preview of designer evening gowns, modelled by Rosanna Davison and Rebecca Maguire and Miss Candy wore a stunning canary yellow creation by same designer.

The First Lady of musical theatre Rebecca Storm performed some of her Broadway musical hits during the lunch, while Eurovision winner Paul Harrington and his group entertained the guests after the meal.

Guests included Ken Doherty, Lady Kathy Botham, Lorraine Keane, Norah Casey, Pamela Flood and Lisa Duffy.  The lunch which aims to raise in excess of €30,000 for the Rape Crisis Centre (and has raised millions over the years) is a favourite charity event and one that’s always much anticipated.
