Sustainable fashion is on the rise, and with it comes the excitement of buying pre-loved vintage items and designer goods for a fraction of their original price. 

If you're like us, and are gagging to update your wardrobe with high-quality, classic designer pieces for good value for money, we have the exact store for you.

With the fashion industry being the world’s second-largest polluter, just after oil, our shopping habits desperately need to change. Fashion has impact, that's for sure.

The Wardrobe Kilkenny is a designer consignment store which stocks everything from designer bags and accessories to complete outfits from high-end labels for an affordable price.

Their business has been promoting sustainable fashion for over 20 years, and they're diligent when it comes to environmental impact. Getting dressed every morning has direct results.

Shockingly, more than 80 billion pieces of clothing are produced worldwide each year. Of these pieces, 75 percent will end up in landfills. The average T-shirt uses 1500 to 2000 litres of water to make.

The fashion industry uses 1600 chemicals in their dyeing processes, and only one per cent of these have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. Scary stats, right?

Shopping pre-loved needs to be a life choice, not just a trend. Buying clothes doesn't have to mean compromising on fashion, style or quality, according to Yvonne Fitzgerald.

Yvonne acts as the proprietor of The Wardrobe Kilkenny, and believes that shopping consignment has numerous incredible benefits. For one, it's eco-friendly. You're keeping garments out of landfill.

Another perk is that you can find unique items with a treasure hunt-type shopping experience. The thrill of the hunt is undeniable.

The same brands come at a lower price, it's like a permanent sale.

The Wardrobe Kilkenny stock pre-loved labels such as Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Brunello Cuccinelli, Bulgari, Dolce and Gabbana, Pucci, Alexander McQueen, Diane Von Furstenberg, Louis Vuitton and many more.

Even if you don't head down to buy something, you can sell your own designer goods for a pretty penny.

Companies like Depop are essentially doing the same thing, whereby you can run your own online shop and buy and sell items over the brilliant app.

When you have gently-used, unique or highly-coveted items that you don't use, why not sell them? Give someone else the chance to love your belongings.

The Wardrobe Kilkenny believe in the lifecycle of luxury goods and are always looking for designer items to sell on your behalf.

To get in touch call 056 771 5542 or visit the store at 29 Patrick Street.

Between now and August 31, if you mention SHEmazing when you consign your piece you can receive 15 percent off your first purchase. The bargains simply go on and on. Enjoy the couture, ladies.


Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas have treated us to the first photos from their wedding on Instagram, and we have died and gone to nuptials heaven.

Just days after their private ceremony in the south of France, the couple are sharing stunning images of the bride and groom walking down the aisle as husband and wife.

Louis Vuitton's creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, shared an image of Turner's wedding gown before the Game of Thrones actress posted her own images.

The newlyweds then revealed black-and-white photos from the private ceremony last night, showing the rest of the world a rare glimpse into the secretive event.

Photographer Corbin Gurkin captured the actress and Jonas Brother holding hands while walking down the aisle, looking absolutely over the moon as they walk through flower petals.

Turner dons a beautiful long-sleeve dress by Louis Vuitton, captioning the photo as, "Mr and Mrs Jonas."

The couple said 'I do' for the second time at the Château du Martinay in Carpentras, France, and hosted the reception and afterparty at the Château de Tourreau in Sarrians.

The guests stayed at the lavish venue during the weekend of the wedding, according to E! News. The pair first got married in early May in Las Vegas on a whim for legal reasons.

Fans have seen some special paparazzi pictures taking from outside the French location, such as the iconic Jonas Brothers' balcony photoshoot and their dog Porky Basquiat wearing a tux.

So, yet another viral horror is doing the internet rounds, and we're ready to check out of the hotel of life. 

An absolutely terrifying ventriloquist doll of Hollywood actor Timothée Chalamet is spreading around the World Wide Web, and it must be stopped at all costs.

The doll was uploaded to eBay for an outrageous $122,795, and he's even wearing the infamous Golden Globes harness. Good luck sleeping tonight, is all we can say.

Others thought the doll resembled other well-known figures, like Justin Trudeau, Kim Jon-Iland Jonathan Cheban.

We're fairly convinced it's Timothée, no one else can pull off that iconic Louis Vuitton harness and live to tell the fashion tale.

Many online users also expressed their hope that they could eventually get their hands on the six-figure item, and we have to admit…that surprised us.

"If your man doesn’t get you the $100,000 one of a kind Timothee Chalamet ventriloquist figure with Louis Vuitton harness for your anniversary, is he REALLY what you’re looking for?" wrote one fan. Wow.

Others were raging that his hair wasn't done correctly, which came out of left field. We wonder has the actor seen the doll? Maybe it will end up stealing all of his roles?

He'd want to watch his back. This isn't going to do good things for our insomnia, we can't get the doll's creepy, smug face out of our imagination…

2019 has already been a whirlwind. January is officially 51 weeks long, and the only thing keeping us entertained during this dark time are random AF celebrity couplings.

From the weirdness that was (possibly) Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson, now there rises a newer, just as odd pairing; Naomi Campbell and none other than LIAM PAYNE.

*Gasp* Cheryl's ex-beau and baby daddy to Bear has been leaving flirtatious notes on the supermodel's Instagram, which is the modern day equivalent of a love letter.


A post shared by Naomi Campbell (@naomi) on

Ms Campbell is always lookin' fresh to death, and it's well known that she doesn't age.

She uploaded this stunner snap of herself pre-show at Louis Vuitton, rocking the 'fro, and captioned it; "Pre-show XX".

Never one to get left behind, Liam snuck up and wrote THIS steamy comment underneath: "Perfection in a person … don't give me those eyes."

There were some rose and eye emojis inserted, which really brought that flirt game up.


A post shared by Liam Payne (@liampayne) on

This ain't the first time there has been flanter between the duo; almost a week ago, Mr Payne posted this image to Instagram of himself seductively gazing at himself in the mirror.

The iconic veteran model commented; "Beautiful Soul", to which Liam replied, "takes one to know one." PHEW.

It's getting hot in here, alright. There's quite an age gap, but who are we to judge? 

Let's see where this one goes, shall we? *Puts binoculars on*


The latest collection for Louis Vuitton was all about bringing fashion into the future.

However, Nicola Ghesquiére’s designs had us feeling more nostalgic than anything else.

Set against a Minecraft-inspired backdrop, the show explored how the digital age affects fashion.

There was a lot of sleek multicolour leather jackets, silvery metallic pieces, and mind-boggling graphic prints. All of these were fabulous mind you, but there was one piece in particular that got our attention. Just look at it!

The standout item gave us a case of sartorial déjà vu. In fact, it felt plucked straight from our early-2000s wardrobe: they brought back the bubble skirt.

Many a teenage disco did we attend sporting one of these bad boys.

The flouncy, rounded-hem bottom is making its comeback in the forward-thinking context of Louis Vuitton's spring line. The collection apparently also drew inspiration from Japanese anime.

The bubble skirts in question were paired with more structured (dare we say sophisticated) pieces to add a touch of playfulness to the pieces.

There was, surprisingly no mention of the bubble skirt’s sister, the infamous ‘rara’ skirt, also a feature in many a 00s wardrobe.

So, really, it turns out that we were all way ahead of the fashion crowd way back when.

We still are not entirely sure if we’re ready to bring these back into our lives.



Attention all shoppers:

If you can fly over to London any time soon, then you just might be able to get your hands on some Louis Vuitton – for absolutely nothing. 

That's thanks to their Series 3 Exhibition, which opened last night and saw stars Selena Gomez, Michelle Williams, Alexa Chung and Poppy and Cara Delevingne on the guest list. 

The real star of the night though, was a wall full of stickers – but these aren't your ordinary children's playbook stickers. 

Each one is branded with a LV logo and features a designer bag or shoe. 

These are the Vuitton goods that are up for free, but the exhibition is quite strict on handing them out and only two stickers can be given to one person. 

So if you have any free time between now and October 18, fly over and raid their free-for-all wall. 

After all, if you can't afford a real speedy, a giant sticker one will have to do!


Forbes has just released its annual list of oh-so loaded celebrities, entrepreneurs and canny business-folk – and suffice to say that it's all rather eye-wateringly wealthy.

All the usual suspects are there too from the entertainment world: taking the top spot in the highest-paid actress category is Jen Lawrence, who raked in €45.5m (gulp) last year alone.

Indeed, the rest of the Top Ten is pretty familiar – Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson and Angelina Jolie are all present and correct, as are Julia Roberts and Kristen Stewart.

But lo and behold taking the No.4 spot is one Fan Bingbing: a stunning 33-year-old Chinese actress who has endorsement contracts with the likes of Louis Vuitton and Chopard; who graces the front of Vogue, and who dominates Vanity Fair's International Best Dressed lists. 

Best known to folk in this part of the world for her role in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, she boasts a decade-and-half long career in the film industry and is a mega-star in her native China.

She also earned €18.5m in 2014 – hence her sky-high position on the Forbes list.

Growing up in Yantai, a province on the northeast coast, she is a graduate of the Shanghai Xie Jin Film And Television Art College and the Shanghai Theatre Academy.

She is currently dating Chinese movie star (and all 'round hottie) Li Chen, a 36-year-old whom she met on the set of The Empress Of China, a 2014 TV drama set during the ancient Tang dynasty era.

Over the last number of years, Fan has become something of a regular sight at the Cannes Film Festival – often wowing gathered spectators and photographers with her breathtaking gowns.

Here, SHEmazing! takes a look at her most incredible, utterly fabulous red-carpet attire. Make sure to follow Ms Bingbing on Instagram too.

















Louis Vuitton leather products could soon be a lot less exclusive – a European court has ruled that the brand has no right to trademark its iconic chequerboard pattern.

A firm-favourite of celebrities, Louis Vuitton has been trying to legally protect two of its designs since 2009. But now the EU General Court has said its dark brown and beige pattern trademark, which it registered back in 1998, and a black and grey version registered in 2008 cannot be exclusively used by the 160-year old French fashion-house. The court ruled the pattern was “basic and banal” and was composed of “very simple elements”.

Like all designer brands, Louis Vuitton takes its exclusivity very seriously – ruthlessly pursuing manufacturers of fake merchandise.

Burberry is still fighting a similar legal case to protect its famous Haymarket check. However, in 2012 a US court declared that no one but Christian Louboutin can use red soles on footwear.

Louis Vuitton is worth more than €20bn – a figure which makes it one of the world’s most valuable brands. It is currently headed by 43-year old Nicolas Ghesquiere, who was previously creative director at Balenciaga.

There is no surprise that the actress was asked to reprise her contract given that sales for Louis Vuitton are said to have risen.
