THE LOST FASHION HISTORY OF MERRION SQUARE TOUR
DUBLIN’S COUTURE FASHION QUARTER
SATURDAY, 19th AUGUST TICKETS HERE €15 2-4PM.
Merrion Square has been a centre for couture in Dublin for centuries. Whether it was 18th century Lords and Ladies promenading in Parisian silks in their private gardens, the 19th century’s bohemians in velvet smoking jackets who gathered at Lady Wilde’s salon at Number 1 or the 20th century styles icons; from Jacqueline Kennedy to the Rockefellers who were dressed in the chicest looks from Sybil Connolly at Number 71. Step back in time, rediscover the square’s glorious past, and see the studios of couturiers and milliners who are the present day fashion residents.
