Loreto Past Pupils Fashion Show

February 2015

Dear Parents,

The Loreto on the Green Past Pupils’ Association is holding a charity fashion show in the school on Thursday, 5th March.                                                                                                                 
The proceeds from this event will go towards:- 

  •  Loreto projects in Kenya -  Nyumbani Orphanage, Nairobi, which cares for children to young adults who are HIV positive, Nyumbani Village near Kitui, which cares for children orphaned because of the AIDS epidemic, and Lea Toto Outreach Programme, which looks after families in the Nairobi slums, affected by AIDS.
  • The weekly Soup Run, organised by students and staff in Loreto College, St Stephen’s Green, after school each Friday afternoon, distributing tea, coffee, soup & sandwiches to people in need who live on the streets in Dublin’s inner city.

We invite you to participate in this very special event, featuring the designs of some of our past pupils – Neilí Mulcahy, Sonya Lennon (Lennon Courtney), Marians of Boyle, Jewellery by Melissa Curry, along with Vintage Couture, 53 Degrees North, milliner Suzie Mahony, Cari´s Closet, Olivia Danielle and the TY Junk Kouture project. We expect an audience of 400 at the fashion show, and it promises to be a high profile event.  We have engaged the professional expertise of Mandy Maher and the Catwalk Model Agency.
