A/W Collection 2016 with Nuala & Brendan Courtney! August 18 2016, 0 Comments

Hi Everyone,

Well its been a very exciting time for us here at Chicago Marcasite with the launch of our new Autumn Winter 2016 Collection.  Things are beginning to settle down again now so let me give you a behind the scenes look!

Our shoot took place in The Morgan Hotel, such a fab spot.  This provided us with the perfect back drop for our collection.  Huge thanks to Glen and all the Morgan team for looking after us so well. 

   Onyx Geometrical Collar Necklace.

 What a showstopper this piece is.  The square onyx gemstones are set in geometrical cut out discs all intricately set with Marcasite in Sterling Silver.  It is fitted with a foldover clasp for ease of wear.  


We were beyond delighted to have the wonderful Nuala Courtney as our model on the day. The Face of Chicago A/W collection, Nuala was a delight to work with, she was so relaxed and you could see that she was enjoying the whole experience, her first modeling job (which we couldn't believe as she was such a natural !!). The collection was perfect for Nuala to model, so classical and elegant, she blew us away!

Nuala's makeup was done by the beautiful Karen Maher of Karen Maher Makeup.  Karen did a fantastic job, which she said was easy, describing Nuala as a real beauty.  Her makeup was perfect giving Nuala a fantastic glow.   

We were also thrilled to have Nuala's wardrobe styled by her son, the fabulous Brendan Courtney. All the pieces Nuala wore were from the Autumn Winter 2016 LennonCourtney For Dunnes Stores collection, which is now available in stores, and is absolutely stunning! 


Our shots were taken by John & Clare from John Duffy Photography and I think you will agree with us when we say they were amazing, the pictures really capture the mood of the day and the brand, fun, relaxing, elegant with timeless sophisticated style.  We were delighted with the results!

We can't wait for the next photo shoot!
