Acclaimed Irish designer Aideen Bodkin launched a new label Dress by Aideen.
The collection is a collaboration with Kilkenny in the lead up to this year's Galway Races, with the aim of creating a range of modern timeless pieces to suit any occasion for the fashion- conscious lady.
The concept for the new label revolves around creating pieces that work for your wardrobe - that make a bold statement yet are versatile enough to be incorporated into your existing wardrobe.
The 13-piece capsule collection, encompasses a range of dresses and separates, some created using a unique embossed floral material developed by Aideen specifically for the range.
The collection gives vintage glamour a modern twist and is unlike the classic occasionwear we are used to seeing from Aideen's pillar Aideen Bodkin range.

The ruching detail on the deep pink Jasmine dress is ideally placed for those bloated tummy days and the cut and colour of this work across the seasons.
Luxury lounge wear

Co-founders Grace O'Rourke and Aoife Connolly have created a three-piece collection featuring pants (€75), sleeveless top (€45) and jacket. The collection will officially on July 23rd 2015 and will be available via www.grapeandgander.com.
The block panelling on this jacket (€95) slims and flatters the silhouette and each piece in the collection is side seam free.
Grace is an athlete, a fitness instructor and a Pilate's teacher and regular competes on the Athletics Circuit while Aoife worked for award winning designer Stella McCartney.
Her second love is nutrition and healthy eating, having shed three stone in the past. Plenty of inspiration there for a newly fit you.
Anything that makes you imagine you're in a forest hits a sweet spot. Sisley's new Eau Tropicale Moisturising Perfumed Body Lotion is a tropical, sunny and, of course, imaginary forest.
Its floral and exotic notes are layered but the citrus and Frangipani stand out while Pro-Vitamin B5 softens the skin.
Its light and fluid texture melts into the skin but at a spendy €69 it is an indulgence or perhaps a holiday treat.
