Fashion Rocks in Dublin

A very special event is taking place next Sunday 31st of January in The Wright Venue in aid of Irish Autism Action...
Fashion Rocks will be hosted by Peru trekker and Irish model Jenny-Lee Masterson and promises to be a night filled with glamorous fun (our favourite kind!).

The fashion show itself will be styled by the talented Roxanne Parker and will be inspired by 70's rock and hippie chic.

If drooling over the glorious fashion on the catwalk isn't enough then immerse yourself in the burlesque acts and live music from bands Diablo, Von Shakes and The Red Labels.

The Wright Venue is a gorgeous night club that we're looking forward to seeing ourselves here in Dirty Fabulous!

The night starts at 8pm.

Tickets are an affordable €20 and can be bought from us at Dirty Fabulous, all Wrights Bars and Assets Model Agency.

Now what to wear....

1930's Wedding Glamour Part 2

These photos have a real feeling of Old School Hollywood Glamour. They were taken on La Peniche barge on the canal which is the perfect spot for any romantic dinner or event.
These Dirty Fabulous vintage dresses hail from the 1930's and 40's and are such an elegant option for a wedding.
Although dresses from this period are nearly always fully covered they still remain very saucy on as the luxurious bias cut satins and silks hug the body. Definitely not a forgiving style but absolutely magnificent on.
