On helping select the winner Chanelle McCoy said “The Judges and I loved seeing so many stylish women out today at The Curragh. I discovered some great young and new Irish designers and milliners so a big thanks to today’s attendees who showcased the very best of Irish style. We were looking for someone who let their personal style shine through and of course brought some colour in to the mix. While it was a hard decision we all agreed Suzanne was our number one choice.”
