Naomi Ajetunmobi Blew Everyone Away at DublinTown Fashion 2018
On Wednesday evening September 12th, DublinTown Fashion Festival: The Collective took place at the Round Room at Mansion House, with one very special fashion segment. Last year’s Young Designer of the Year 2017 winner Naomi Ajetunmobi showcased her collection, and blew everyone away.
The humble designer won the title at last year’s fashion extravaganza, and DublinTown Fashion brought her back on stage before showcasing her stunning collection for all to see. The six-piece collection featured last year’s winning design, as well as practical coats, skirt and top combos, a jumpsuit and the dress of dreams.
Naomi Ajetunombi, a graduate of the Grafton Academy of Fashion Design, won a photoshoot with renowned fashion photographer Barry McCall at his studios in 9 Bond Street. Earlier this year, we at DublinTown Fashion were treated to the first glimpse of Naomi’s collection, which we are very proud to reveal for you today. Young model Tara Elizabeth of 1st Option Models was the perfect face to wear these pieces for the below photoshoot.
During The Collective fashion show, Naomi’s collection was worn by six models, two of whom represented her journey with DublinTown Fashion: Grace walked the runway in last year’s winning design as she did on the night of The Collective 2017, and Tara walked wearing the princess dress of which she modeled during the Barry McCall photoshoot.
The audience in the Round Room were aghast at how beautiful this collection were, many noting that pieces were very wearable, and others later flocked to Naomi to congratulate her. A group of attendees also wore Naomi’s designs, including makeup artist and Xposé presenter Nadine Reid.
Naomi Ajetunmobi is currently designing in her studio on Dame Street, Dublin 2, and we’re very proud of her journey since crowning her as the Young Designer of the Year 2017 winner. Naomi is also working on commissioned pieces and we could not recommend her more!
