The majestic Kilronan Castle in Co Roscommon provided a fitting backdrop to a unique fashion shoot for Irish designer Catriona Hanly’s opulent creations. Exquisite.ie’s Aisling O’Loughlin was joined by actress Aoibhin Garrihy, model and art expert Ros Lipsett and models Taylor Digie and Lasma Kalnaja of Assets to showcase the autumn winter collection.
Shot by photographer Eilish McCormick, the equestrian theme incorporated jodhpurs, riding whips and boots and indeed horses, to complement Catriona’s elegant blouses
Makeup maestro Paula Callan created the looks, with Peter Mark’s Lisa Hollingsworth on hair, backed up by shoot co-ordinator Michael Doyle also of Peter Mark.
The fantastical creations of The Season Hats added to the drama, used to great effect for the monochrome looks in particular.
London based Irish designer Catriona Hanly studied her craft at Central St Martin’s in London and The Barbara Bourke College of Fashion in Dublin. Catriona was nominated for Irish Designer of the year 2015, won Jewellery Designer of the Year and her designs have stood out at Ascott, Cheltenham, The Irish Television Awards, the VIP Style Awards, House of Icons pre Oscar Fashion Show in Hollywood and starting to grace carpet events in LA, London, Dublin and Cannes.
We look forward to seeing how the finished shoot turns out.
