He might have committed one of the most infamous acts against an Irish soccer team, but the designer still admits to an inappropriate crush on the former Arsenal striker.

Who is your inappropriate crush?

Thierry Henry - any Ireland fan knows why that one is inappropriate.

What uncool song do secretly you love?

Fine Young Cannibals' She Drives Me Crazy.

Your most embarrassing fashion moment?

I have a good few of these, but the one that stands out is taking matching colours to the max with orange and blue plaid trousers, Pepe Jeans orange shoes, and an orange and blue shirt.

What's your most annoying habit?

When I think I'm hilarious but nobody else seems to get the joke.

Do you have a secret talent?

I can play the drums. Not the handiest of instruments to break out at a party, mind you. Have you had a 'pinch me' moment?

Dressing amazingly talented women (animators Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly and Nora Twomey) for the Oscars' red carpet. At the time it was all a bit of a blur.

Which celeb would you like to dress?

Kate Winslet: beautiful, natural, great attitude - and mates with Leonardo DiCaprio.
