Magnificent Ukrainian Fashion

Roman from Ukraine & Ireland shared the following message:

My wife Victoria asked me to present to you her new collection of accessories, which she created while in Ukraine in May.

There are brooches and shawls. We share here on our website a selection of images and videos illustrating the magnificent Fashion.

Brooches can be worn on clothes, hair or a bag. They are handmade from 100% cotton yarn with decorative gems.

Air shawls are light and quite warm, made of kid mohair. Victoria brought 30 brooches and 10 shawls from Ukraine.

As we still don’t have a boutique to start our trades, Victoria wants to try direct word-of-mouth sales and she would very much appreciate if we would display through our website these handmade accessories to colleagues, friends and relatives. Prices for each brooch = €45, and each shawl = €150 (excluding delivery costs).

Products can be picked by the photos, paid to AIB account and then we will deliver them with An Post service.”

Details for buying the products:
– contact via WhatsApp (085 289 4252, Roman & Victoria)
– delivery via An Post
– payment to AIB account (including delivery costs), IBAN: IE10AIBK93615416502089, BIC: AIBKIE2D.

Sincere congratulations to Breeda O’Leary of West End, Millstreet who appeared in a superb feature on this Friday’s “Today with Maura & Dáithí” on RTÉ1 television.   Accompanied by daughter, Julie and grand-daughter Neila (who also appeared on the excellent programme) Breeda was interviewed by Dáithí and came across as a true natural on television.  Breeda recalled in a moving interview how she first met her late husband Neily and we saw some splendid family photographs during the chat. Then the magnificent makeover was coordinated by a highly professional Team revealing the outstanding success at the end of the Show.   We thank Breeda for the two images below which were recorded after the Show.  The programme may be viewed on the RTÉ Player (Breeda appears at the very start and the very end of the programme).  Click on the images below to enlarge.  (S.R.)
