FASHION: Fresh Irish Fashion | Seasonal Chic for Autumn
From the Editor: Autumn is finally here – and no better time for a city break, when you can avoid the long queues and high temperatures of the summer months. In this issue, we cover the cultural highlights of Amsterdam, along with the best places to eat and stay. The city is absolutely magical at this time of year when the canals and parks draped in autumnal foliage. But just don’t take our word for it – try it for yourselves!
For fashion lovers, we feature the top trends from the Paris and London runways, the best of Irish design from the Council of Irish Fashion Designers show, and an exhibition of the work of Belgian designer Olivier Theyskens from the Museum of Lace and Fashion in Calais.
We also showcase the work of some very talented Irish artists – witness the wonderful work of Gerard Byrne on our cover.
In our interiors section you’ll find expert advice on choosing the right type of paint to suit different surfaces, and we introduce the fabulous new designer paint brand, Curator, manufactured in Ireland by General Paints.
I hope you enjoy this issue and find inspiration in our pages to plan your own ‘collection of beautiful experiences’ for the autumn days ahead.
