I have my debs coming up this year and I want to get a dress soon as I am away for most of the summer. And now is probably the time to do it as there will be a good choice in the shops. Can you tell me the shops in Kilkenny that sell debs dresses? Thanks Tara.
It's an exciting time for you and probably the first chance for a lot of girls to really push the boat out and glam it up. All the bridal shops I wrote about in Kilkenny in my column a few weeks ago also sell debs dresses. As you said Tara now is the time to start looking around - the shop owners.told me that a lot of girls have already made the very important purchase.
Cameo on Kieran Street (056 7765753) have a good selection and great colours. Fashion Depot on High Street (056 7765390) seems to be a popular choice for Debs with a great choice as ever. Jeutonic on the Parade (056 7723295) stock a large range of eveningwear all of which will have you looking very chic on your special night.
Finally you could check out Elegant Occasions, (056 7755567) which is located on the square in Callan – they also have a great choice of exclusive dresses in stock.
I think it's worth mentioning that all these shops will take the customers name, the style of dress and the name of their school to guarantee that two girls don’t end up wearing the same dress. I admire their diligence in doing this as it would spoil the evening if any two girls arrived in the same dress.
Also if you know of a good dressmaker you might be interested in getting your dress made. And think about a vintage piece which will be totally different - 50s style dresses are big now and old style Hollywood glamour is always in vogue. Have a look in Granny’s attic you might be surprised what you will find! Happy shopping and have a great time.
