With Christmas morning just around the corner and the city bustling with busy shoppers, I asked some of Ireland's top fashion folk what they are hoping to find under the tree this year.
Here's what they had to say:
Presenter, Fashion Stylist & Writer
Top of my wishlist is a Burberry Prorsum Shearling coat...for a mere €6,377.55.
Fashion Stylist & Journalist
Loneliness is all the more palpable this time of year so I would say the gift of friendship for everyone. Christmas FM is doing a wonderful job raising awareness for AWARE. Tune in and make a donation.
Metallics, sequins, embellishments, whatever it is as long as it sparkles I'm hooked. I fell in love with this American Retro tux jacket in Paris, it was on sale and it fit perfectly, I walked away. So I'm hoping Santa will be popping this metallic tux jacket under my Christmas tree or I'd happily settle for another trip back to Paris to go get the jacket myself. A girl can dream....
My ultimate wish list item is... a PUG!
I would absolutely die if I woke up on Christmas morning and founds a pug asleep at the bottom of my bed!!
I recently met an 11 week old Pug puppy in Dublin, and I feel in love. She was even wearing a Christmas Jumper!
I'm definitely NOT going to be getting a Pug for Christmas but am vowing to get one in 2014. I need one!
I guess what I am dreaming most of is women wearing this dress. It is made from hand cut & applied patent leather each placed one by one and is uniquely made in Ireland! The sheer layer is made from 100% silk organza and really empowers a structured femininity. It will be available in Atelier 27 in Drury Street D2 from January 2014 at €295
This Christmas I'm dreaming of some quality time with my friends and family. If money was no object , what would I hope for under the tree? I might ask for "staff" this year. Hehe. A cleaner, chef and PA for the year would be nice although I'm useless at telling others what to do. Haha Failing that, I wouldn't mind a set of Rae Morris make up brushes or MAC's new Masterclass collection.
I LOVE these Celine Gold Plated Oxfords, I mean hello amazing! I'm not sure of the price, but found a pair on EBay for nearly $3000, so unfortunately they will have to stay on the wish list forever! :)
And finally, my own wish...
As I am heading to Australia on the 8th January, all I want this year is to spend some quality time with my family. My sister is a Nurse and had to work last year so I'm really looking forward to spending the day together this Christmas.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas and gets to spend this special time with the people they love:)
