And the winners are…

And the winners are…

ON THURSDAY night, I attended the Irish Fashion Innovation Awards in Galway and, happily, found evidence that the Irish fashion industry is alive and kicking. The night itself was fun, a catwalk display of the finalists’ work, finished off with the awarding of prizes and a somewhat overlong raffle. There were canapés and cocktails and … Continue reading

Summer lovin’

Summer lovin’

Apologies for my silence of late. I am, I’m sorry to say, a disappointment to the female gender  – I cannot multitask. Once upon time I thought I could but then, about five weeks ago, I suddenly found myself back in full-time employment (on  a temporary basis) and realised that, holy crap, I’m exceptionally useless … Continue reading

Green begone

Green begone

GREEN. Not my best colour. Especially on my hair. But a serious case of hard water almost left me with an emerald-hued barnet and, if you’re a fan of blonde highlights, it’s something to be aware of. The horror came to light at my pre-Christmas hair appointment. The colourist looked at my hair in disdain … Continue reading

In training

SPRING, it seems is finally here and my head is spinning with the abundance of gorgeous things that can now be worn and enjoyed with little or no risk of contracting pneumonia. Top of the list is shoes. I always love that moment when you put the winter boots back into storage; it really signals … Continue reading

It works…

It works…

…Well, it said it would. As an advertising graduate, I love nothing more than a good ad and I have a special place in my heart for that classic Ronseal copy line – “It does exactly what it says on the tin”. I was always going to look twice, then, when a British beauty brand … Continue reading

Into the pink

Into the pink

DANG! I successfully resisted – nay, I actively shunned – the pink trend last season and was pretty pleased with myself for showing such restraint in the face of unrelenting trend-pushing. But it looks like pink is having the last laugh because, guess what, it ain’t going nowhere for spring/summer. So here I am, egg … Continue reading

A fashion story

A fashion story

I FIRST came across Natalie Coleman at her final-year degree show at LSAD (Limerick School of Art & Design) in 2006. Even back then, I loved her work. A few years later, in 2010, she set up her own womenswear label, and NATALIEBCOLEMAN is now one of the most exciting and successful fashion brands working … Continue reading

The one to watch – and wear!

The one to watch – and wear!

EVER since she launched her own label in 2012, County Louth-based designer Niamh O’Neill has been lauded as the golden girl of the Irish fashion scene. In 2013, having been named ‘Irish Fashion Designer of the Year’ at the Fashion Innovation Awards, it seemed like her career could soar no higher…until 2014 kicked in and further … Continue reading

Couture and more at No 29

IT’S been a busy week here at GreedyEdie.com so I’m posting again, just to keep you up to date with all the latest goings-on. While I was in Dublin on Thursday checking out the new Rosaliac CC Creme from La Roche Posay, I was also able to squeeze in a visit to the official opening … Continue reading

Beat the blushes

Beat the blushes

LAST night saw the official Irish launch of a new La Roche Posay product, Rosaliac CC Creme. Now, my love affair with French beauty brands has been well documented on these pages, and La Roche Posay (henceforth LRP) has long been one of my best-in-class. Interestingly enough, though, between the glasses of bubbly and the bite-sized … Continue reading
