Colley is holding the £1,000 scholarship which was also part of the prize. 'Eurofashion' was a competition to select the young Irish designer of the year, who then went on to represent Ireland at the European finals which were held in Helsinki that same year. The national competition took place in the ballroom of the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin and was televised live by RTÉ.
Details on the other participants in the competition can be found in the RTÉ Guide of 3 January 1969.
