Forever in Blue Jeans Listowel Races pays fashion homage to the iconic denim blue jeans on second day of festival

It was a Monday like no other  . . . as crowds enjoyed the serious racing, fashion and fun of the second day of the Listowel Harvest Racing Festival (18th to 24th September).
Monday was also the premier of ‘Forever in Blue Jeans’ fashion competition sponsored by O’Connor’s Hardware & Farm Supplies, which celebrated one of the most iconic wardrobe essentials – Denim Blue Jeans ! Everyone of all ages got into the spirit of the occasion and wore their favourite denim jeans, dresses, shirts and skirts!

Mc’ed by Billy Keane each of the 12 finalists told the story behind their individual look. After much deliberation, the judges decided that Mary Woulfe in a ruffled denim dress with co-ordinated hat and accessories and the very dapper Dominick Moloney were the overall winners and each received a €200 cash prize from sponsors Larry, Tina and Sadie O’Connor from O’Connor’s Hardware & Farm Supplies.

‘Forever in Blue Jeans’ was the second of 6 fashion events over this Harvest Racing Festival at Listowel. Tomorrow, Tuesday 20th of September, sees Students & Super-heroes take centre stage with prizes for the Best Dressed Student and Best Fancy Dress Outfit.
