Description   Irish fashion designer Glynis Miller wins 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. Standing on the catwalk, from left to right, are; model Ann Davis who is wearing one of Miller's dresses, Glynis Miller, Minister for Industry and Commerce George Colley and presenter Michael Maguire. Kevin McCourt, the Director-General of RTÉ, can be seen on the right, seated parallel to the catwalk.

'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.
