Description   Irish model Suzanne MacDougald on the catwalk during rehearsals for 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. Suzanne is wearing a white linen beachwear three-piece designed by Margaret Timmons. The three competition judges are seated in the background. From left to right; fashion designer Clodagh, Cecil Vard of Doreen and Leonora Currie, fashion advisor to Corás Trachtála.

'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.
