Well, eh, Style Wars…
If you’re just a tad addicted to Ireland’s answer to Project Runway, TV3’s Style Wars (we can’t get enough of the drama or enough of gawping at Caprice) then here’s your chance to meet the budding designers in the flesh and have them work their magic on you.
The folks at Lipton have teamed up with the show and the fabulous people at Fran & Jane to host weekly events in the Fran & Jane Dundrum Town Centre store. Over the next few weeks a different a different Style Wars finalist will be working as a stylist in the store each Saturday, offering tips and advice for the season ahead. And while you peruse the clothes, you’ll get to sample some Fruit & Herbal tea too…win-win if you ask us.
It’s all to celebrate the Lipton challenge on the latest airing of the show in which each of the finalists had to put together a Lipton Herbal & Fruit inspired look and create a headpiece, direct a photoshoot, and put together a magazine spread worthy of a glossy like STELLAR (phew, we’d need a cuppa after that).
And if you like what you see on the telly, you can win a Lipton inspired Fran & Jane ensemble all of your own. They’ve got seven up for grabs, so check out their Facebook page for details on the comp as well as info on the weekly store events.
