Irish have a lot to show off about at Showcase Ireland

To say I was blown away by the talent at Showcase Ireland is an underestimate and it is the Irish designers and artisans who have the most to be proud of. Without bias (honestly) they were by far the best.  I have always said we are a seriously talented bunch – that is why I have always chosen to wear Irish when I can.  I have reported on and worked with many wonderfully talented Irish designers over the course of my career and in the last year got to share some of those designers with you on my Keane On…

Keane On Style receives the warmest of Donegal welcomes

And here are the pics to prove it….   I have to start by saying a huge thanks to all the staff at Harvey’s Point who went beyond the call of duty to make us all feel comfortable and relaxed.  They spoilt us actually!  Thanks to the adorable gentleman that is Noel Cunningham and my skincare expert Peggy Stringer who made it happen. The food was way beyond my expectations and I really couldn’t have hosted the 3 and a half hour long show without the help of Noel Cunningham on stage and Sheila Russell behind the scenes. Thanks too…

IFTA News

It has always courted controversy but I have always enjoyed the IFTA’s.  For me it’s a night of celebration – celebrating the remarkable talent we have working in the television and film industry in Ireland and abroad – meeting up with my peers and dressing up for the cameras.  Actually, apart from the fun part of designing a dress with one of Ireland’s top designers and getting ‘styled to within an inch of my life’ the ‘working the red carpet’ bit still gets to me.  There is no other event in town that does a red carpet like the IFTA’s.…

Feeling “Divine” in Caroline Mathews

The launch of Cork Fashion Week in Ballymaloe House was not only a fabulous day out with yummy food, fab fashion and a great Awards ceremony it was also an opportunity for me to meet some amazing Cork ladies (love your style girls!) and new creative talent. I left the event laden down with business cards from some incredible new discoveries for my #KeaneOnStyle events. I can’t wait to share them with you – God we are a talented bunch creatively! One of those designers was Caroline Mathews. I was blown away by her collection. And I wasn’t the only…

Being “Divine” for 10 years!

What an incredible night for Divine Boutique last night. Celebrating 10 years in business in the stunning setting of Carton House. I was delighted to help with MC duties – being a massive fan of Divine boutique and its proprietor Mary Greene (who also happens to be my Bessie!) – and to support and create awareness of The Neurofibromatosis Association of Ireland. Will post more about it and an incredible young lady – and sufferer of NF – Aoife Quinn later. I brought my two little ladies Emelia and Romy to the show with me and on the way home…

Happy 10th Birthday Harvey Nichols!

I can’t believe it’s ten years since Harvey Nichols arrived to Dundrum Town Centre.  I have been a huge fan from the beginning.  I love their labels, it’s a really comfortable space to browse, their Personal Shopping Service is relaxed, professional and so much fun and the staff are helpful, friendly and honest. There is no pushy, hard-sell here. I also love the fact that you can try go on to their main Harvey Nichols website – see something you like from a whole range of other labels that may not be stocked in the Dublin store and the girls…

Keane On Style Wins at Cork Fashion Week Irish Fashion Awards

  Thank you to everyone involved in the Irish Fashion Awards which took place today in Cork as part of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cork 2015. I’m chuffed with my award (Most Influential Figure in Fashion & Beauty!). Unfortunately I can’t stay and celebrate as I have an early start, so I’m heading home, where incidentally I’m the least influential figure when it comes to dressing my daughters for school in the morning. If you’d like to see some photos from the event, I just posted some on Facebook, have a look here ; www.facebook.com/lorrainekeaneofficial  

Going For A Gucci Look

I decided to try emulate the Gucci ad look – I love their new collection.  I love their Autumn/Winter 15 campaign (see pic) – Very 70’s but with a contemporary twist.  Flairs look fantastic if your 6 foot but personally I find them difficult to carry off (being 5 foot 5 and a half inches – the half is very important!).  This is my way of doing ‘a little bit 70’s’ this season! My jacket is not www.gucci.com, I bought mine in a vintage shop in France, my jeans , the t shirt is www.riverisland.com and boots are www.isabelmarant.com bought…
