Bend it like the D'Arcys at a pilates class

AOIFE Cogan and Gordon D'Arcy opened their Form School Pilates Studio just weeks ago, but they are already dreaming of expanding across the country.
"Absolutely, we would love to open more," Aoife told the Diary. "That would be the plan. It's like our little baby."
The D2 studio has already attracted a glitzy clientele -- Amy Huberman and Angela Scanlon are big fans.
Even a few rugby hunks have got stuck in on the way.
"We had the Irish team in for the autumn internationals," Aoife said.
The model is enjoying life as an entrepreneur. "Modelling has a shelf life, so this is my post-modelling world," she told me.
And while working with your other half can have often result in nightmarish rows, Aoife and Gordon have remained calm, cool and collected throughout the lifetime of the project.
"We didn't fight," she said. "We're kindred spirits and we have similar visions.
"He's very artistic too -- and he's mad into photography. We've really enjoyed it (the business) because we work really well together."
