5154a2f98dfa161c94eaec66e41307dbI think we live in an age where we are always on the hunt for new experiences and that is what I want my #LostTours to be all about, showing people the city of Dublin with new eyes. A fashion lens if you will. As it’s the season of gifting I thought I would offer a unique present to give your nearest and dearest in the New Year, a gift which is both a trip down memory lane, a time travelling experience and a look behind the scenes at Dublin’s fashion world today. You can now book my most popular tour, The Lost Fashion History of Grafton Street (Ladies Tour) as a Christmas gift.

This tour in question kick starts my 2017 season and takes place on Saturday, 22nd April and will visit Ireland’s premier shopping street. It looks at the businesses past and present who have been part of our collective fashion imagination, whether it was the great rival department stores Brown Thomas and Switzers’, Madame Doyle a court dressmakers who created bridal and court gowns for Dublin’s elite (like Maude Gonne pictured above) or indeed the many new independent fashion businesses and studios which are very much part of the fabric of the area today.

You can book tickets on the Eventbrite link below.

Season’s Greetings, to you and yours! Hopefully this gift will delight and inspire the receiver.
