Once again a lucky fan of the Vintage Fashion & Decor Fair will be chosen to undergo a complete retro makeover.

The Details:

WIN personal style consultation with stylist and fashion photographer Pearl Phelan, expert on vintage fashion, who will discuss your style preferences and will then scour the rails and the displays of the fifty traders at the fair to find the dress and accessories perfectly suited for a glamorous you; once you have chosen the dress, you will be introduced on stage before undergoing a vintage transformation with hair stylist Joyce Clarke-Henry and makeup artist Amanda Hynes Johnston MUA, our resident experts (and if you don’t win this lovely prize, retro makeovers will be available from Joyce and Amanda from €20). The day will be photographed by Ben Power photography, specialist in wedding and fashion photography, so you know he will capture you looking your very best. The final touches to the makeover will take place on stage, with commentary from the stylists Amanda and Joyce.

The prize includes complimentary admission to the fair on Sunday 10th November for the winner plus 3, so you can invite your partner, mum, sister or friend to share the fun and excitement of the day.

The winner must arrive at the Royal Marine Hotel Dun Laoghaire  by 11:30am on 10th November for the initial style consultation, followed by an hour or so spent choosing and fitting the perfect vintage dress and accessories. We will have a little intro on stage to introduce you to our vintage fans, before  Joyce and Amanda work their magic. You will receive helpful hints and tips from the experts about how to re-create the look, and will be free to ask them for advice and suggestions for your at-home beauty regime. The entire process will be captured on camera and a digital album of the day will ensure you can share your memories with family and friends.
