National College of Art and Design

The annual fashion showcase from the students of Dublin's National College of Art and Design is one of the landmark events of the Irish style industry.

Earlier this week, S! TV's Niamh Geaney headed along to the show at the Grafton Suite in the Westbury Hotel to check out some of the incredible designs on show this year, and to talk to the very talented students behind each piece.

Famous NCAD alumni include Philip Treacy and Simone Rocha, so this year's students had some very big shoes to fill.

Fifteen designers took part in the event, each showing six pieces from their own collection. Brown Thomas Fashion Director Shelley Corkery was also on hand on the night to choose one lucky student as the 2015 Designer to Watch. This years winner, Daniel Roden, took home a €4,000 bursary, as well as the chance to showcase his designs on the Brown Thomas fashion floor later this year.

In addition to showcasing their work at the show, NCAD students also got the chance to rub shoulders with some of the leading names of Ireland’s fashion scene. Renowned Irish designer Carolyn Donnelly was there to support her daughter, Lily Spain, and her classmates. Celebrated designer Helen Steele was also there, as well as other high-profile guests included Anne Heffernan, representing Dunnes Stores, the shows sponsor.
