Moment in Time: Laois ICA Fashion Show wows the crowds in 2005

These ladies certainly knew how to put on a good show.

The Laois Federation ICA modeled a Spring collection in April 2005, much to the enthuasiam of the large crowd which attended Castle Arms Hotel, Durrow that night.

Two women who excelled on the catwalk that evening were Borris-in-Ossory members Helen Kavanagh and Nancy Fagan.

The President and honourable Secretary could have given Milan Fashion Week a run for it’s money as they strut their stuff in Durrow that night.

The beautiful clothes and head dresses were on display that evening came from the No.1 Boutique in Mountmellick.

There were also some styles from VFM Fashions, Brand Central, Rathdowney, with accessories from the Bag Shop and Pavers shoes.

Special guest on the evening was Claire Roche, former Dublin Rose. There were four models from Karen Morrissey Model Agency, Kilkenny, as well as several ICA models from the different guilds.

All photos below were taken by Alf Harvey on this stunning evening.
