Closet Confidential: Wendy Crawford
Wendy Crawford is an NCAD textiles graduate and currently works as a designer and freelance personal stylist. She also is a co-owner of Bow Boutique in Powerscourt Townhouse, Dublin. I spoke to Wendy about street style, tutus and our mutual hatred of skin-coloured tights!
First fashion memory
Wearing a ballet tutu and legwarmers in my front living room when I was four pretending I was in Fame!
Favourite designer label
Too many to mention but Isabel Marant is one at the moment. Although I’m mostly inspired by what people wear on the streets rather than designers.
Favourite high street store
Best bargain buy
A €1 charity shop blouse. It has an amazing ruffle collar and buttons down the back. I also got a Mulberry bag for €1 once too!
Most expensive item in your wardrobe
Marc Jacobs handbag.
Top of your wish list
Camilla Norrback, pink peep toe ankle boots. They will be mine!
Most stylist moment
I like everyday street style more than ‘big event’ kind of style. My favourite moments are always quite by accident.
Biggest fashion faux pas
Nude tights. I just can't!
My mum and Alexa Chung!
Era you’d love to have lived in
Forties and Fifties.
Fashion or style
Style - always.
Finally, what did you have for breakfast this morning!?
