Describe your style in three words?

Causal, preppy, carefree.

How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning?

It really depends on the day. 15 minutes generally.

Fashion or function – which word best describes your attitude to clothes and why?

It really depends. A bit of both I guess! Functional fashion, maybe?

What’s your biggest source of style inspiration?

Instagram or street style.

What do you think of Irish street style?

I think Irish street style has gotten a lot more interesting in the last few years.

Where do you like to shop?

I really shop everywhere and anywhere as I like to mix highstreet with designer pieces. I do think Reiss is amazing for menswear — great fit and quality.

Why does your style/outfit work?

My outfit works because it’s not overly dressy and it’s comfy enough to run around the salon and work on a photoshoot afterwards.
