Great Lengths – The Mane Event Is Back For 2019

We’re delighted to announce the return of The Mane Event which will take place in HOUSE Dublin, Leeson Street after the Dublin Horse Show on August 8th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.

With fantastic prizes up for grabs on the night, it’s the perfect end to a fashionable day.

Model, Simone Gagyte, was on hand to announce the event in HOUSE Dublin, donning beautiful bespoke headpieces crafted by award winning milliner Margaret O’Connor.

Judges on the evening will include top Irish Milliner Margaret O’Connor, fashion editor and style queen Elle Gordon and Great Lengths Lovely and Irish Beauty, Aoife Walsh. Entrants to the competition will have the chance to win prizes in three categories for the best hat/head-piece, the best overall look and the best hairstyle.

Margaret O’Connor said, ‘I was beyond excited when Great Lengths approached me to collaborate! The Mane Event will be full of interesting couture head wear and the finest of fashion – my favourites! I’m honoured to be asked to act as a guest judge and really looking forward to seeing the style on the night!’

To enter, ladies must simply register between 6.30-7.30pm in HOUSE. At 8pm, winners will be announced by MC on the night, radio broadcaster and Great Lengths Lovely, Lottie Ryan. Guests can enjoy specially created cocktails and enjoy a selection of canapés from HOUSE and the top three ladies on the night will also receive a Great Lengths goodie bag.
