The Man Behind Dior


We waited more than a year for Dior to make their grand announcenent of their next deisgner. We then waited three months for his first collection to be unveiled and last Monday, we were in heaven. Raf Simons’ astonishing, elegant and just plain fabulous collection blew the fashion industry away with classic Dior silhouettes mixed with a slight modernism.

Here is an interview with the man himself…

J.W. Anderson


The future looks bright for J.W. Anderson. His innovative, eccentric and covetable designs have been on my wish list for quite some time now. Even though he may still be up and coming, he has come a long way. From working as a merchandiser at Prada, to starting his own menswear label and lately womens, Anderson has even impressed fashion editrix Anna Wintour. His resort 2013 collection is one of his best yet. With his unusual, new shapes and interesting choice of fabric, Andersons designs are far from the norm, but that’s what I love about him. He always gets me so excited to see what he will do next. Plus he’s Irish, just like me. Always a bonus!

eBay Online Fashion Week Finale Show


As we pondered over what shoe is best, inhaled large amounts of hairspray and re-touched our carefully planned outfits, Leanne Woodfull, Laura O Brien, Roisin Flanagan and myself waited nervously backstage for the show to start. As one of the four stylists that had been chosen to style eBay’s first ever fashion show in Europe, it was a daunting but exciting experience.

Backstage

As the show went on, I realised all of the hard work, the amount of effort and passion that went into this show suddenly became worth it. To hear the crowd cheering as we walked on stage and the many positive feedback that I recieved  was the icing on the cake. I realised this is Definitely the profession for me. Fashion here I come!!!

Here is a video of the stellar event that took place in Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin.

Ebay Online Fashion Week


I was so excited to be given the opportunity to style my very own looks at Ebay’s Online Fashion Week fashion show! As the winners of Ebay OFW, me and three other stylists had to come up with outfits using Ebay and then present our looks in a fashion show that streamed live across the world. The experience was AMAZING and it is something I will always remember. Stay tuned, more  to come later!

Here is a picture of me and the other stylists:

London Collections: Men Spring 2013


For the first time ever London has held its own menswear ‘Fashion Week’ entitled London Collections: Men. The successful weekend focused the fashion industry’s eyes on London, not only appreciating the exciting year they are having (The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics), but also the fantastic new talent that London is producing. It looks like London designers are the new best thing!

Here are my top 5 shows:

J.W Anderson

James Long

Jonathan Saunders

Oliver Spencer

After years of running away from sportswear, the fashion industry has found a way to make it stylish. For Resort 2013, Bottega Veneta did it best. Ladies, beauty is no longer pain!
