WAH Nails: I’ll have a cup of tea, and tell you of my dreaming*


I had no sooner read about WAH Nails over on Lynnie’s blog than I heard about a very exciting upcoming Dublin event. On Wednesday October 27th, the fabulous beaut.ie ladies are hosting one of the Barry’s ‘Tea With…’ cultural events with none other than WAH’s founder, stylista and entrepreneur Sharmadean Reid.

This free event –- running from 6-7pm in The Loft at the Powerscourt Centre -- is a chance to see the lovely beaut.ie sisters, Aisling and Kirstie McDermott, chat to Sharmadean about emerging beauty trends and, hopefully, her own very interesting background.

A graduate of Central St Martin's college in London, which also counts such fashion luminaries as Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane and Luella Bartley among its alumni, Sharmadean styled for a number of fashion titles before taking the role of Sportswear Editor at Arena Homme + magazine. Back in 2004 she started a fanzine called WAH to promote women in creative industries, from which WAH Nails -- coming soon to Harvey Nicks in Dundrum -- eventually originated.

All this, and she’s only 25-years-old.

For (free!) tickets and more details on the Barry’s ‘Tea With…’ event series, check out the Facebook page.

One to keep an eye on, and I’ll certainly be popping in for a cuppa!
