If you haven’t read it yet, Stellar have gone to town with their ‘Special Irish Issue’. It’s the kind of thing that makes me proud to be a part (albeit the smallest) of the fashion industry in Ireland. The features range from ‘Sexy has no size’ (where 6 Irish women ‘bare all’ and talk about their body confidence) to ‘Damn she’s got some wicked style’ (a look into the wardrobes of 6 Irish women – More on this later).
Two of my favourite Irish only features in this months issue, are ‘Stellar‘s Little Black Book’ – a guide to eating, drinking and, most importantly, shopping in cities and towns all over Ireland; and ‘There’s no Place like Home’ – a beautiful editorial photoshoot, set against a backdrop of lush green fields; it features only Irish designers & shops. Here’s a couple of shots from the feature:- Including the genius moment that sees model, Blathnaid (Assets) sitting on a stone wall in a Matt Doody dress munching a packet of Tayto.

Including such gems as… ‘I can’t live without leather trousers’ and ‘This season I’m loving…‘ I can absolutely confirm that I am perfectly capable of surviving without pleather clothes. As for the ‘I’m Loving… ‘ phrase, I can only apologise profusely and promise to try harder next time… Cringe.
Massive thanks to Stellar Magazine for asking me to come on board. It is amazing to be part of the issue!
