On Friday 15th March, top models launched Brown Thomas Cork’s luxurious new Spring Summer 2019 designer collections at Ballyfin, Co.Laois.

From New York and London to Milan and Paris, Spring Summer 2019 showcases a vibrant, versatile and colourful season. The new season brings a spectrum of newness from the glamorous ‘All Dolled Up’ to the pared back ‘Down to Earth’, SS19 has everything in between.

Designers return to the roots of their respective fashion houses exhibiting a ‘Timeless Minimalism’ with classic, toned down pieces in muted tones. The catwalks showcased exquisite elegant florals, feathers, fringing and sequins for a dressier aesthetic in ‘All the Trimmings’, swung into the 1960s with tie-dye and irresistible mini-dresses and boho chic sauntered down the runways with scarf and paisley prints in ‘Nomadic Cool.’ Tailoring remains key this season with 1980s power shoulders while the Utility theme is set to dominate in jumpsuits and cargo trousers.
