Punchestown Festival  - Throwback

Well, its nearly that time of the year again.  In a few weeks we will see Punchestown National Hunt Festival 2016 running from Tuesday April 26th to Saturday April 30th.

The Punchestown Festival is regarded as the Grande Finale of the Hunt Season and features top class horses, trainers and jockeys from both sides of the Irish Sea.  The atmosphere for the festival combines the brilliant racing, live entertainment and the fabulous style every day with much more besides.

I have been very lucky to have designed the wining hats for some of the best dressed ladies at the Punchestown Festival.  I have enjoyed the festival first hand many times and I'm sure we will return again.

The highlight for me was when two of my clients scooped the  'Best Dressed' prize, wining twice in the same year was wonderful.

Here we see Oniesa Owens with her win, styled from the high street with her own Wedding Shoes!!

I designed this dyed to match hat to complete the overall look.

This is the first festival of the year for many ladies to show off their stunning fashion and I love designing hats for them introducing some spring/summer colours.

Kay Mulcaire won 'Best Dresssed' wearing this beautiful metallic and citrus outfit.

Again I designed her hat dyed to match and trimmed it with pheasant feathers.

I am looking forward to the TV coverage for this year and all the style that we can enjoy.   Maybe some Suzie Mahony Designs Hats will feature again!!
