The style outside the Brown Thomas AW18 show this morning will make you rethink your wardrobe

The style outside the Brown Thomas AW18 show this morning will make you rethink your wardrobe

Brown Thomas was this morning’s destination as stylists, critics, journalists and photographers gathered for an exciting preview of what’s to come for next season. While models were busy being prepped inside the store, the street style show was taking place outside and we were there to capture it.


Dublin might not have a week-long fashion festival to the scale of Paris or London, but, we like to celebrate the forthcoming season in forward-thinking style. Though we’re still enjoying the sunshine, industry insiders, buyers and stylists are gearing up for cooler months ahead, and this morning, all eyes fell onto the Brown Thomas catwalk for an exclusive preview of its AW18 collections. While the makeup artists, show coordinator and Brown Thomas fashion director Shelly Corkery made final preparations, there was great excitement outside as Grafton Street began to fill up with an explosion of colour and texture. The fashion posse had arrived.

This morning’s street style selection was a homage to sophisticated tailoring; cool belts; grown-up, elegant skirts and dresses; and cool sunglasses and bags galore. Not to mention a lesson in how to arrive for an early-morning catwalk before breakfast, looking impeccable and suave at the same time. If you’re looking for outfit inspiration to see you through the rest of summer, look no further (I’m so excited to copy every single one of them).
