A collaboration of both the Gaisce Society and the LGBT Society in LYIT brought an evening of fashion, entitled ‘This is Me’, to the 140 audience in attendance in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Letterkenny.
The co-presenters, Ciaran White and Anna Ni Domhnaill provided the running order of events with carefully prepared descriptions of the clothing from the six local retail outlets that kindly exhibited, Penneys, Pure, Evolve, New Look, DV8 and Verve.
The models themselves were selected from the ranks of the student Clubs and Societies membership in LYIT, with Katy Murphy, Jessica Martin, Ciara Walsh, Aoife McGrory, Olaide Anjorin and Isobel Keenan turning heads with an array of gear providing splendor at every twist on the catwalk.
The programme was organized and choreographed by Fiona Kelly, Student Administrator and Paddy Gallagher, Sports Officer, providing the event lighting.
Student Union Officers, Tanya Russell and Frank Donnelly both were on hand to model some of the wardrobe selected by the retail outlets exhibiting, and the soundtracks were delivered courtesy of Chris McDyre, Ents Officer, now considered to be an ‘old pro’ in the area.
Among the male models were students Michael Connolly, Ian Smyth, Danny Gallagher, Adam, Crossan, Thomas Blockley and Paddy Treanor.
The final fund tally reached €1,200 going to fund the activities of Breakout Donegal Youth Service.
