Kildare Village, one of the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages by Value Retail was the setting for a truly Chic Summer Tea Party, hosted by internationally celebrated British model and muse Daisy Lowe to mark the launch of the Chic Summer Festival.
International guests, including many of Dublin’s elite were treated to the ultimate Summer Tea Party complete withfloral-inspired cocktails, candy-coloured macaroons and mini cucumber sandwiches. Mismatched gilded frames with floral collages decorated the walls, while white picket fences and vintage china created the perfect garden party setting.
Daisy Lowe said “I am so excited to be here to launch the Chic Summer Festival at Kildare Village. I have a love for both shopping and festivals, making Kildare Village the perfect stop for me to enjoy performances, food and entertainment this July.”
To capture the essence of Summer, Kildare Village is showcasing a unique floral couture catwalk curated by international award-winning florist Joe Massie and using the most beautiful flowers of the season.
