12 prominent Irish fashion designers have created special pieces to support Repeal of the Eighth Amendment, and they're stunning.
If you're still wondering what you can do, exactly, to support the Yes campaign, then a visit to Atrium in Powerscourt Shopping Centre is a great place to start. In store you'll find unique pieces that 12 Irish designers, from jewellery favourite Chupi to Pearl Reddington, Helen Steele and Emma Manley, have each designed incorporating their own inspiration from the campaign behind the Repeal of the Eighth Amendment.
Brought together by complete tour de force and avid repeal campaigner, Andrea Horan of TheHunRealIssues.com, Fashion is Repealing was curated and displayed at a fashion show of couture pieces at Atrium showcasing each designer's item, with a further 50 limited edition pieces available for sale in the store now.
