Fashion blogger and fundraiser Arlene Gill has announced details of one of the biggest style events of the season in Donegal.

The iCARE Charity Fashion Show 2017 for Autism takes place on Wednesday 22nd November in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, doors open at 7pm, show starting at 7:30pm.

Entering its 10th year, the iCARE Fashion Show has grown to become one of the most popular fashion shows in the North West.

This glamorous event will showcase all the latest fashion trends in the build up to Christmas. The main sponsors of the night are L’Oreal, who have generously donated products for all attendees.

Local mum-of-three Arlene (AKA girlyinspocorner) has organised the show, and as a parent to a child with autism and diabetes, this is a cause very close to her heart.


iCARE recently hosted a charity ball with great success, this is their second event this year and Arlene said they are delighted to be working with a diverse range of stores and designers.

“It’s hard to believe that our first fashion show took place in 2007, it’s always such a great night for everyone who attends,” Arlene said.

iCARE and Sonas Youth Club is an independent charity which relies on the generous support of local people and businesses to keep their doors open.

“Without the ongoing support of our local community, we simply couldn’t support over 100 families affected by Autism in our community through the services that we do.

“That’s why it’s so important that we fundraise to keep this vital service going, and offer children and young people with Autism opportunities to participate in our community,” Arlene said.

A lot of hard work has been put into this event and the organising team are excited to have new stores/designers taking part this year.

The night includes goodie bags for all attendees and a best dressed lady competition.

So why not come along and enjoy the fun, while getting some inspiration for A/W 2017 trends.

Tickets are only €10, now on sale from Macs Newsagents, The Inishowen Gateway Hotel, iCARE Centre and Simpsons Supermarket, Carndonagh.
