GTI FASHION FIESTA 2016
GTI Fashion School presents their annual GTI Model Walk at 5pm on Wednesday the 9th of March. The Model Walk begins at GTI college transforming Galway city center into a catwalk, where up to 60 models will strut their stuff wearing designs from the students at Galway Technical Institute across the Wolfe Tone Bridge, through Quay Street, Shop Street and will finish at Eyre Square. This is followed by a Fashion Show at 6pm in The g Hotel, Galway where the students will display their designs hosted by former Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh. This years theme is ‘Culture Clash’.
This event brings back memories for me as I was one of the models for the GTI Model Walk in 2014 for my friend and make-up artist Katie O’ Brien, it was such an exciting experience, and I loved being a part of it, to see the photos from GTI Fashion Show 2014 click here.
