The loves of my life... fashion designer Joanne Hynes
The fashion designer chats about her favourite people, places and things.
Well, I can't reduce that to one person. The answer is my four children - Fainche, Brannagh, Iseult and Faolan. I don't know any love like that.
Listening to really loud music, as a teenager, in my bedroom in the west of Ireland - especially The Lion and The Cobra by Sinead O'Connor. Seeing Sinead O'Connor for the first time on The Late Late Show, I thought she was a goddess.
The moment of the day
When an idea in a collection really 'heats up' and looks like something new and exciting that I want to put my name to.
Baidin Fheilimí [Phelim's Boat] I sing it to my children, and it has deeply personal memories.
Perry Ogden's Pavee Lackeen.
The working parent everywhere, and basically balancing that.
Too many to mention. I'm currently reading Presence by Patsy Rodenburg. She's head of voice at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and was, up until recently, the director of voice at London's National Theatre. I believe it's a book for everyone.
These days, it's all Joanne Hynes from Dunnes Stores!
My tiger lady iPhone cover. It comes everywhere with me.
I just rediscovered the power of an eyelash curler again, after years of neglect.
If I had a drink, it would be Remy Martin and Baileys with ice. I haven't drunk alcohol in years.
Imagining that I have the time - and energy - to give to one.
My friend Eoin Lyons from LyonsKelly Architecture, who goes way beyond the ordinary in terms of friendship goals.
The piece of advice
"I want you to do you!" From Dunnes Stores's Margaret Heffernan.
The pet hate
The kind of people who misuse their power. Being respectful to everyone is the new wave of doing business - intimidation is the old wave.
The Sheraton Hong Kong, for frequent long and intense design-and-research trips.
Any old-man's bar where it's peaceful, and where there is a turf fire.
The beauty product
Scent. I love Parfumarija in the Westbury Mall, Dublin.
Taking the time to get to know oneself.
Nothing very exciting, apart from the odd hot chocolate.
The part of my body
My left hand - it has served me well so far.
Recently, I'm amazed by the robust talents of Lady Gaga. I was so moved when she posted my embellished leather hairband on her Instagram feed three times in less than five minutes.
Inis Meain in the Aran Islands, every time.
My 16-month-old's hair and the back of his little neck.
Give me a fried-egg sandwich on brown bread any time.
Joanne Hynes's spring/summer Collection 2018 'You Do You and I'lll Do Me' launches on March 1. It will be available from Dunnes Stores branches in St Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Grafton Street, Cornelscourt, and online
