The Young Designer of the Year Fashion Show 2016 took place on Wednesday 7th of September, right in the heart of the city! 

Bank of Ireland in College Green, was turned into a fashionistas fantasy, showcasing the designs of the 12 finalists of the Young Designer of the Year competition. The judging pannel, which consisted of Bairbre Power, Barry McCall, Debbie O’Donnell, Ashling Kilduff, Thomas, Caroline Hanratty, and Clara Halpin, had a hard decision to make at the end of the night. All eyes were on Darren Kennedy as he took to the stage to announce the winner. JJ Donnelly and her spectacular design stole the show as she went home with the ultimate #DublinFashion prize – a fashion shoot with Barry McCall to create an incredible portfolio and a €2000 bursary from West Coast Cooler!

We took to social media to find the best snaps of the night! Keep them coming – #DublinFashion
