Occupation: Owner & creative director at ethical fashion label, Wear we Wander.
From: Kinsale, Co Cork.
What are you wearing? Today I’m wearing an H&M polo neck (€16), a leather skirt from the Wear we Wander bespoke range (€340); a lace under slip from For Love & Lemons www.Freepeople.com (€39); boots from Footloose, Kinsale (€60); a handbag (€180) from www.Wearwewander.com ; and the necklace was a gift from my sister.
Describe your style in three words? Boho, rock, romantic.
How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning? If I have a big meeting, I’ll usually leave an hour to get dressed and ready; other than that it takes about 15-20minutes.
Fashion or function — which word best describes your attitude to clothes and why? I was a real fashion girl once but now that I’m in the business I feel function is so important. I love opening my wardrobe and seeing a piece I bought 5 years ago and it still looks amazing. I really opt now for quality over quantity.
What’s your biggest source of style inspiration? When designing and creating — it’s music and bygone eras. I use Pinterest a lot. I’m lucky because both my granny and my mum have great sense of style, so a little bit of their wisdom has been handed down over the years.
Where do you like to shop? H&M on the highstreet; Gina’s in the English Market; online at Ethical Box and Freepeople.com, and at flea markets and charity shops.
Who or what is Ireland’s greatest undiscovered gem? The Smithfield Market Fair — an amazing monthly Market in Dublin and Vada K boutique in Newry.
Why does your style/outfit work? Edgy accessories and leather teamed with romantic lace make a great combo.
