25th Annual Fashion Show

On the 23rd of October 2014, Villiers School held its 25th Annual Fashion Show.

As always, Hillary Thompson and her models came to our School to teach this year's TY students how to walk and act like professional models on the catwalk for this annual charity fundraiser. This year's charity is Ian’s Trust, a charity that supports families of children who suffer from acquired brain injury.

The 80+ students who participated, practiced over a period of 5 weeks in the School, and eventually modelled clothes from over 15 different shops on the night, as well as from some prominent Limerick designers, including well know past pupil, Caroline Mitchell.

Some of the shops that kindly lent their clothes were Stitch, Tailor of Blue, Dorothy Perkin, Xpose and many more.
All ticket proceeds and money from raffle tickets of €800 was donated to Ian's Trust. 

The show itself took place in the wonderful Radisson Blu Hotel from 8pm till 11pm, ending with two students presenting both the announcer Ms Woods and the head of events, Hillary, with a bouquet each. We all look forward to watching next year’s show and to seeing the production as members of the audience rather than back stage!
