Merchant Hotel celebrates 10th year of Fabulous Fashion Teas in style

Fashion lovers were treated to a sweet showcase of new season style as The Merchant Hotel's birthday celebrations continued in style.

The Belfast five-star hotel hosted its Fabulous Fashion Teas event for the 10th year.

The event was part of the venue's 'Decade of Decadence' celebrations throughout April to mark 10 years since it first opened its doors.

The Rita Duffy Suite provided a striking setting for four individual Fashion Teas which showcased spring/summer collections from a hand-picked selection of Northern Ireland’s top boutiques and designers including Harper at The Merchant Hotel, The Walk in Wardrobe, Banbridge; David Yurman at Lunn’s the Jewellers; and local designers, Chloe Dougan and A.P.D Jewellery.

While models from Style Academy provided a round table fashion show, allowing guests to get up close and personal to their wares.

Spring hair looks were created by Andrew Mulvenna with make-up from Lancome.

A fundraiser was also held - and will continue throughout the birthday celebrations - for The McDermott Oncology Haematology Day Unit at the Ulster Hospital, Belfast.

The Merchant’s Fashion Teas returns on Saturday, 8 and Sunday 9 October.

Already confirmed to appear are Harper at The Merchant Hotel, The Walk in Wardrobe and a joint show between local designers, Shauna Fay and Grainne Maher to showcase their autumn/winter line-ups.
