POISED to be the highlight of the season for style set, the Christmas in Killarney designer fashion event will take to the catwalk in the five-star Europe Hotel & Resort on November 17.

Now in its sixth year, this hugely successful night will be hosted by the Norma O’Donoghue Model Agency in the stunning Panoramic Restaurant at the award-winning Europe Hotel with the beautiful lakes and mountains of Killarney acting as a stunning backdrop.

On arrival guests will be greeted by none other than TV personality Noel Cunningham and enjoy champagne and canapés while being treated to some festive songs by well-known pianist Jack Patrick Healy. Following this, guests will be invited into the restaurant for a sumptuous meal with wine. After dinner the Parisian-style fashion show will begin featuring some of the top models from the Norma O Donoghue Model Agency.

"The designers showcasing this year are some of the very best in the country and I’m delighted they all wanted to take part in what has become one of the top fashion events of the season," said Norma.

On the night each lady will receive a goody bag worth €50. The prize for best-dressed lady will be sponsored by Keanes Jewellers, with the winner receiving an exquisite piece from the Keanes collection. A raffle will also take place with prices worth up to €250.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
