O’CONNELL STREET was transformed into a runway on Saturday morning for the inaugural Ennis Street Fashion Show.

As part of ‘Christmas in Ennis’, Clare County Council hosted the event in partnership with the Holman Lee Model Agency and Ennis Chamber to showcase the finest of Ennis menswear and womenswear from Ireland’s boutique capital.

From early on Saturday morning, staff were busy transporting racks of clothing to the offices of Sherry Fitzgerald McMahon, the estate agents and auctioneers became the fitting room for all models.

Council staff such as senior executive engineer Paddy Tiernan were on hand salting the footpaths to ensure there was no tumbles on the runway.

Two fashion shows took place, one at 12pm and the second at 2:30pm, several of the town’s most prominent independent shops and retailers showcased their offering in a unique manner and creating a focal point for Christmas shoppers.

Fifteen models sashayed from the ‘The Height’ down O’Connell Street, strutting their stuff while to show the type of styles that can be purchased from fashion stores in the county town.

Mayor of the Ennis Municipal District, Cllr Pat Daly (FF) told Monday’s meeting of the Economic Development strategic policy committee (SPC), “Ennis traders were very happy with the weekend”.

“I’ve never seen such style like it, I was impressed with what I saw so far as style is concerned. It is great that Ennis has so much quality shops,” Cllr Daly stated.

Director of Economic Development, Carmel Kirby noted the “uniqueness of all the clothing from over forty retailers” who took part in the fashion show.
