The Winter preview collections from Opera Lane were unveiled within a bistro environment in Market Cafe , Perry St, Cork. This beautiful building perfectly conveyed the spirit of the collection. Chic , cosmopolitan with feminine hints and edgy urban cool, elegance and sophistication. It pretty much sums up the style on the streets around Cork today, since the opening of Opera Lane we are fast becoming the fashion capital.
I felt like Coco Chanel attending a Parisian brassiere with her friends #cloggers aka The Cork Bloggers. Where elegance, great minds and gastronomy created a harmonious blend. Here are the Clogger fashionistas who attended the event.

This final event for MSL Cork Fashion Week 2015 was exclusive to press and bloggers. I had feelings of great pride sitting in my reserved seat along with my fellow cloggers. The number of Cork bloggers is growing rapidly and this occasion was a great way to show Cork businesses/brands that this dynamic group of bloggers will create huge social media buzz for weeks to come. We are currently in discussions with several top brands for upcoming events, so watch this space !

Natasha showcased all the key trends for winter which include Faux fur, velvet, gothic romance boho/70’s and a little Avant Garde tailoring and that was just the women’s. In menswear we were shown urban utility with a rustic spin from denim shirts under knitwear which oozed a laid back style.
Then a polished city slicker look with sophisticated blazers and fine knit polos and skinny trousers with modern footwear for the urban look. And from my position on the front row, I noticed a few notable trends emerge that will be filtering their way into my wardrobe over the next month or so. Enough of moi rabbiting on, that’s the stylist in me showing through, I will let you see for yourself in the images below, enjoy !
It was a brilliant night and I am already planning a shopping trip to Cork. Make sure you avail of the FREE personal shopper service from the wonderful Natasha Crowley stylist for Opera Lane.
