Last Friday afternoon, 14th September, saw WomanKind host its annual lunch in the Intercontinental, Dublin, in aid of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. The event was sponsored by the the home of Irish design, Kilkenny and was filled with delicious food and insightful talks from Irish women in business and fashion.

The event was attended by some of Ireland’s top businesswomen and was MCed by RTE Presenter Claire Byrne with Lorraine Keane choosing the best dressed guest who won a VIP Kilkenny experience complete with a €1000 voucher.

Top stylist, Irene O’Brien took guests through a showcase of Kilkenny’s beautiful Autumn Winter 2018 collection. Attendees also got exclusive look at the Irish designers partaking in Scéal, the story of Irish design which include household names Natalie B Coleman, Alan Ardiff and Emma Manley who will be in Kilkenny for the month of September to showcase their new collections.

Luxurious Donegal tweed company, Triona Design, made its highly anticipated debut to Kilkenny during the fashion showcase. Other designers that featured included Caroline Kilkenny and FeeG.

CEO of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, Noeline Blackwell, spoke to Claire Byrne onstage about the importance of events like WomanKind to raise much needed funds and thanked guests for supporting the cause. Noeline highlighted the need for Rape Crisis Centres to support those who are victims of sexual violence and the vital services they offer.

Irene and Claire concluded the show with a Q&A from Kilkenny CEO, Marian O’Gorman. She discussed how the brand has evolved over the years in the highly competitive retail industry and what new trends she anticipates in the near future.

Guests enjoyed a three course meal of Caprese Salad to start, followed by Roast Chicken and an assortment of desserts to finish and toasted with a glass of Beefeater Pink gin and tonic.

Guests at the event went home with a goody bag from Kilkenny, that included a discount voucher for use in Kilkenny, a Max Benjamin scented candle, a voucher from Blow Salons, Newbridge decorations and an array of edible treats.

All involved in the event donated their time and services free of charge and as well as spot prizes on the day. For more information visit the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre website
