This May, TV presenter Lorraine Keane will host a unique fashion event to raise vital funds for the hunger crisis in East Africa and beyond.

Supported by some of the nation's best-loved brands and favourite fashion/lifestyle personalities, the event will combine a fashion show and designer auction with a public sale, selling a wide range of brand new and pre-loved designer and highstreet clothes, bags and accessories.

"For seven years now, I have been travelling to the developing world with various Irish NGOs – all of whom do remarkable work – so I've seen first-hand how peopel are struggling to survive on very little," Lorraine explains.

"Every time I come home, I realise how much stuff we have. We have too much. It doesn't feel right."

So in November, Lorraine decided to organise an event that would enable people to get rid of their unnecessary purchases while helping to raise money for the people who hardly have enough to survive. 

Talking about her reasons for the event, the former TV presenter continued: "Millions of people have already died and it is estimated another million people will die in the next twelve months unless we do something. 

"I am hoping that between us, in just one day, we can make a difference with FashionRelief – a public fashion sale of pre-loved or worn-once designer clothing and accessories.

"I think you’ll agree we all have too much stuff. Even one item can make a difference."

The event will be held from 11am to 5pm in the RDS on May 13 and will feature premium and designer bags, clothes, and accessories.

Besides Lorraine, there will be other high-profile attendees, some of whom will be manning their own stalls selling their personal pre-loved items.

There will also be three fashion shows featuring donations from retail outlets, celebrity supporters, and designers. We can't wait to see all of the fabulous wares and support this worthy cause!



TV Presenter Lorraine Keane has admitted that if she were to cheat on her husband, her first choice wouldn’t be George Clooney or Colin Farrell – it’d be Paul Rudd!

“I love him, you’d have great fun with him. I’m not a George Clooney person.”

She’d also give Leonardo Dicaprio a go, because he’s 6’4”: “Every Hollywood star is up to my shoulder and I’ve met enough of them, all the men are tiny. He’s a real man and beautiful.”

Hmm, we wonder if anyone has told her that Paul Rudd is only 5’9”? Still, his sense of humour would probably make up for what he’s lacking in stature!

These guys better be on their best behaviour if they ever run into Lorraine, as she hasn’t got any time for people with bad manners:

“Bad manners, there’s no excuse for it. People who are rude or full of themselves or think they are better than anybody else: I hate that."

“They say that often the most famous people are the most low-key… Bono is such a gentleman. He obviously has to have his stage persona and would have a big ego when he’s on stage because that’s part of the performance."

“But in real life, he actually has no ego, he’s just such a nice person. And yet you’d interview boy bands who haven’t even had a hit yet, they’ve just been formed and they’re little upstarts. You feel like saying, ‘Good luck! I hope it keeps fine for you!’ My mother always said to us, there’s always room in the world for a nice person. I believe in karma, a smile and good manners will help you through life.”
