This weekend we attended Fashion Salon, a fashion event coordinated by the lovely folks at Solas Nua.

During the event, we witnessed a live fashion installation which was a preview to Solas Nua’s annual fashion runway show, Paisean Faisean.

The gathering was intimate, and attendees were given complimentary champagne and the finest French macaroons (yum!).

Models were placed around the gallery—some lounging and some standing—while wearing beautiful designs of emerging Irish fashion designers that were handpicked by Solas Nua. These designers will present their collections at next year’s 2012 Paisean Faisean show.

We saw Joanne Hynes’s red, rich, velvet gown, Grainne Maher’s Medusa headpiece, Tim Ryan’s knit dress, and Umit Kutluk’s luxurious, feather skirt, which was complimented by a birdcage nestled nearby.

Other designers who will appear in Paisean Faisean’s 2012 show include Riona Treacy, Lizzie Agnew, Matt Doody, Mia O’Connell, Demelza Buckley, and Kerry Brogan.
