I was recently sent this fantastic bow tie by the people at My Kind of Tie for a style post. I was sent the London floral bow tie. It looks pink, but that is the effect that is given off from the red and white silk woven together to make the bow tie. The blue flowers compliment either colour so it is a winner either way! The bow tie retails at €15 and there is free next day delivery to Irish customers. Given that the bow tie is called London, I decided that a dapper London look would be best for this post. The venue I chose for this shoot was the fabulous Faithlegg House Hotel in Faithlegg, Co.Waterford which is a short drive from where I live. I thought it was the perfect setting as the grounds look beautiful in autumn and the interior has a high-class feel that you would expect from any venue of it’s stature.
Welcome to this weeks installment of Style Stories! This week I will be interviewing Karl Bowe otherwise known as Mr Ireland 2014! The first time I saw Karl was at the Bride of the Year show back in January when he had the pleasure of escorting the Mother of the Brides, who won a makeover on the day of the show! Since then I have had the pleasure of meeting Karl at a number of events recently and I found him to be a really sharp dresser and an all round great guy! Karl is also a model and an actor and I’m sure some of you have seen him on TV3’s Red Rock or ITV’s Take Me Out. I’m now going to let Karl tell his style story. (more…)
