what is your...



  • Favourite shop?

Dolls in Dublin and Colette in Paris.



  • Bargain buy?

A bright orange fox-fur jacket for €70 from Blow in Barcelona.



  • Biggest splurge?

A large, brown leather monogram satchel by Louis Vuitton for €800 from Brown Thomas. I've had it for five years and it's been all around the world with me.



  • Best and worst dressed style icons?

The best are Alexa Chung, Audrey Tatou and Debbie Harry. I don't like when people are over-styled, like Cheryl Cole.



  • Favourite label or designer?

Comme des Garcons, Sonia Rykiel, Manoush and Acne.



  • Monthly spend on clothes?

I'm just back from travelling, so before I went I'd spend about €500 upwards. But now it's between €50 and €100.



  • Last fashion buy?

A yellow-and-green floral print, shrunken shirt with a double Peter Pan collar from Urban Oufitters vintage section.



  • Biggest fashion mistake?

I don't think I've ever regretted anything I've worn.



  • What do you love and hate in fashion?

I love how girls and boys have evolved into wearing similar pieces and how there's more freedom and passion now in Ireland to express yourself. I also love the increased accessibility; like designers doing collections for H&M. And I hate when something from a design house is copied in a really bad way that doesn't do it justice, like Louis Vuitton bags.
