Description   Irish model Wendy Gilbertson on the catwalk during the Irish final of 'Eurofashion '68', in RTÉ Television's Studio 1 in 1968. This show was broadcast on RTÉ Television on 13 February 1968, but it is unclear whether or not it was live. Wendy is wearing a culotte-style swimsuit designed by Catherine Treacy; programme presenter Michael Maguire is standing on the right.

'Eurofashion' was a competition to select the young Irish designer of the year, who then went on to represent Ireland at the European finals held in London on 21 March 1968. An article on the 1968 contest appeared in the RTÉ Guide of 9 February 1968. This issue of the Guide also printed the competitors' designs.
