Weekend Loves: This week’s must do, see & buy

What we’re loving this weekend... 


Azure has always been an accessories go-to. Owner Audrey Lehane has moved premises, buying and renovating a listed building on George’s Quay with a studio and trade room. “Restoring 23 was something I felt strongly about as I believe in the rejuvenation of our city,” she says. Check out Azure at 23 George’s Quay. www.azurejewellery.ie


CREATE is back at Brown Thomas, showcasing the very best in Irish design. Now in its seventh year, it’s become established as a launch pad for new Irish designers to gain commercial retail experience.

This year there are 22 designers curated by fashion director Shelly Corkery with pieces from Ale Walsh, right, Lainey Keogh and Helen Cody. Runs at Brown Thomas, Dublin from Monday to August 13.


As a bookmaker, Cork local Ellen Martin was always a glamorous face at the races, and a regular contributor on Channel 4’s Cheltenham coverage.

It was a logical progression to move into race day fashion with online boutique, Fab Fillies. With the Killarney Races around the corner, Ellen one-off pieces are a must for Ladies Day dressing. Ellen’s sister business, Wedding Belles, is a bridal accessories studio in Castlemartyr. Contact Ellen on 086 2392562.
