The milliner on how her mother is her best friend and how she believes in hard work.
My mum - she is my best friend and number-one supporter! She taught me everything I know - from learning to thread a needle to running a business
Winning Best Dressed Lady at the Cheltenham Festival in March 2015. I'll never forget the moment they called out my name. My business has skyrocketed over the last 18 months, thanks to it!
The moment of the day
Every time my head hits a cold pillow, I release a secret smile. Something about the instant gratification of laying my head down after a hard day's work makes me happy!
I love Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud
Work even harder
Buying shoes . . .
Pretty Woman. Julia Roberts is one of my favourite actresses. I remember watching it and falling in love with her beautiful hats
Krikor Jabotian, an incredible couture designer; I only discovered his couture designs recently. Every single garment is made with exquisite fabrics
#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. It is one of the most uplifting books I have ever read. I believe it's what gave me the motivation to open my own boutique. Sophia was a normal young girl, with very little money, setting up a business. She is a now a multimillionaire - a true inspiration
Recently, I wore a dress by a Canadian designer to my best friend's wedding. It was a gorgeous shade of raspberry, and so beautifully cut around the shoulders and waist. It's something I'll have in my wardrobe for years
The beauty product
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation; it lasts all day
In December 2014, my best friend Lorraine and I travelled around Thailand and Australia for a couple of weeks. Thailand was an Aladdin's cave of silk fabrics, beading and applique. I packed three suitcases full of fabrics and posted them home. I still use them every day. Australia was a totally different experience - a little more like Ireland, but with a lot of sun!
A hat. I am probably being a little biased here, but I believe a hat is the perfect accessory to finish an outfit. They give ladies confidence
My Canon 550D camera. It weighs a ton, but I bring it everywhere with me.
Over the last five years, I have brought it to every race meeting or event I have gone to
The pet hate
My sister stealing my clothes. Even though she is two sizes smaller than me, she manages to dress herself top-to-toe in my clothes. I think every sister has this problem, though.
The Capitol Lounge in Dublin - they do the most amazing cocktails, and it's a perfect location for a girlie night out
Way too many to single out anyone!
The piece of advice
'The sky's the limit; it's there for the taking. But you've got to go and get it.' Again, this is something my mum reminds me of daily. I am a very positive person, but it's always good to get a reminder of this saying!
A Cosmopolitan. I love sweet flavours
Lough Rynn Castle in Mohill, Co Leitrim - one of Ireland's most beautiful hotels. My best friend got married there recently, and the hotel could not do enough
Walking. I always find it so refreshing to wake up in the morning and go for a long walk
The part of my body
My hands. They are by no means beautiful, but they work a lot of magic when making hats!
Victoria Beckham. She always manages to make the most simplistic dresses look really wow. Her own collections of clothing are beautifully cut, high-quality pieces
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. A classic scent
My mum's brown bread. Delicious!
