Fairyhouse Easter Festival – Ladies Day

This year the theme for ladies day was country and myself and my mum attended Fairyhouse Ladies Day all set with the country theme on April 22nd 2019. Thankfully we had a gorgeous day for the event. We both wore Saraden Designs original creations, which of course were made using my handmade Saraden Fabric.

What we wore

I wore my piece Phoenix which I created for my Belfast Fashion Week runway collection called then ‘The White Collection’. I wanted to match the feathers in my design to my outfit so I went shopping and found a check shirt in Penneys and decided to restyle it. I removed the collar, buttons and pockets, shortened the sleeves and length into a waist length jacket and added some decorative buttons and it worked perfectly with my hat design.

The rest of my wardrobe I had already, the skirt came from New Look, the shoes I bought in New York when I lived there many moons ago and the cami top I borrowed from my mum for the day.

Next my mum wore vintage denim culotts and a match denim shirt with gold beaded detail she picked up in Florida 20+ years ago, her hat was a custom designed Saraden Designs piece to match her outfit for the day and her bag was borrowed from me.
