Irish Fashion Group launch a spring summer collection with a week long fair.

The Irish Fashion Group was established in 1979 by the Goods Council to market womenswear manufactured by Irish companies. Since then, they have netted £25 million in orders. It is expected that over £2.5 million will be spent by retailers at the fashion fair. 

The well dressed lady of '85 will have four options to choose from - bold pyjama stripes, designs derived from menswear, jazzy prints or soft pastel shades.
