Preparations for the Mc Elhinney’s fashion show continue apace in the school and we recently welcomed three senior members of the Mc Elhinney’s team to Finn Valley College. Owner John Mc Elhinney was accompanied by two of his main buyers, Dana and Lisa. During their visit, Mr Mc Elhinney and his staff were treated to a number of presentations from our 4th year students.
Students researched spring/summer trends in 2014 and presented their research complete with their own personal twists! Mc Elhinney’s were very interested to hear what trends and brands the students wish to see in their shop and were extremely impressed with the extent of their research and their confidence while presenting.
After the presentations there was a question and answer session and the two ladies were interested to see what the students wear outside of school, and photographs were exchanged and discussions had around what they were wearing and what the influences are.
John, Lisa and Dana were then treated to a guided tour of the school by some of the students before they left. The upcoming Fashion Show has helped the school form a great link with Mc Elhinney’s and the local business community. School Principal Mr Thompson on behalf of the school expressed our appreciation to our visitors thanking them for their efforts to visit the school with their busy schedule and the opportunity to host the fashion show.
The eagerly anticipated Fashion show is on March 27th in the Finn Suite of Jackson’s Hotel and is being coordinated by Ms Mc Geehan and Ms Boland. Tickets are available to buy at €10 each from the school and Mc Elhinney’s Stores.
