The Hardiman Hotel’s ‘Legacy of Style’ Ladies Day Competition takes place this Thursday July 28 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbles, great entertainment and be in with a chance to win a fantastic stylish prize.
Stylish ladies are invited to the Hotel this Thursday evening to enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbles and be in with a chance to win a fantastic stylish prize – a €1,500 voucher for Les Jumelles Boutique, a €1,000 cash prize, plus a two night stay for two in a suite at The Hardiman Hotel, a bottle of Champagne on arrival and dinner for 2 in the Gaslight Brasserie. Second prize is a Magnum of Taittinger Champagne and for the social set there are great prizes from some of Galway’s best, including a stunning Kate headband from Emily Jean Atelier and Micil Gin and Micil Connemara Cream Liqueur for ‘Best Instagram Post’ on the night.
The judges on the evening include two of Galway’s fashion stalwarts, sisters Mary McSweeney and Margaret Gallagher of Les Jumelles Boutique on Chapel Lane, sponsors of the main prize. The twins opened Les Jumelles in 1997 and their exclusive luxury brands include Paskal, Philip Lim, Acne Studios, Rick Owens, and Saloni. The judging line-up also includes fashion editor Bairbre Power who has judged Ladies Day both at Ballybrit and at evening style events in the city. As guest stylist for this unique shoot at The Hardiman, Bairbre took inspiration from vintage looks that Race Week guests might have worn over the decades and chose modern day looks inspired by style icons of the past.
