The Unify Showcase has become one that fashionistas do not want to miss as it shows the best collections from established Northern Irish designers as well as up-and-coming students and local boutiques.

It was held in the Titanic Drawing offices in support of the A21 global campaign to end human trafficking, a dramatic backdrop for a show-stopping event.

Guests checking in to the Fitzwilliam Hotel in Belfast did a double take when they thought they had walked through the wrong door and had gone straight out into the garden. It was an easy mistake to make as the ground floor of the boutique hotel was transformed into a secret garden. The scents of the fresh flowers, which were abundantly arranged throughout, were stunning as were the cocktails and hospitality offered to the guests.

Table quizzes are a great fun way to fundraise but they don't half bring out the participants' competitive natures, and the gloves were off at the Pani Quiz Champions at Ten Square. I'll not mention that hosts CoolFM/Downtown won the wooden spoon – oops I just did!
