‘Fashion Relief’ Update

The countdown has officially started and I’ve been blown away by the support I’ve received from friends in the industry. So many well-known faces from the world of television, sport, entertainment and fashion volunteered their time to join me at the launch of FASHION RELIEF – Ireland’s biggest fashion fundraiser in aid of the hunger crisis overseas. I returned from a visit to East Africa last November and quickly realised that very little was being reported on the region’s hunger crisis. How can 20 million people facing starvation not be big news? I also thought about the amount of stuff…

Tweed Dreams! The wonderful collection by Catriona Hanly

I’ve always enjoyed supporting Irish designers….we have incredible talent in this country….many of whom have gone international with success all over the globe.  One of the latest on the design scene in Ireland is Catriona Hanly who has already, in under three years,  got herself a very respectful following not only on home shores but  in the U.K. and parts of Europe.  I’ve know Catriona for over ten years now and like myself she is mildly obsessed when it comes to fashion. Also, like myself, she has been designing clothes for herself for years. I am delighted that she decided…

St Patricks Day Celebrations VIP style!

There is no doubt about it, if it wasn’t for the St Patricks Day festival Committee and Marks and Spencer showing us such a good time every year and allowing us to do the St Patricks Day parade VIP style, my daughters would not be quite as patriotic!  Champagne breakfast (admittedly, that’s more about me!), escort to the GPO avoiding all crowds, seats under a sheltered canopy (yes, I did say SEATS! None of this shoved up against a barrier and standing in the cold for hours like in MY day as one of 7 children) And being seated beside…

London Fashion Week – Lovely!

It was my first time to do London fashion week as a guest/celebrity in the frow.  I was also commissioned to write up an article by two International publications – one US and one UK – so there was no major pressure. Any other time I’ve attended this fashion frenzy I’ve been in the media area, side or end of catwalk, pressed up against a red rope with the rest of the press, vying for interviews with designers, celebrity attendees and models. This time round with no major deadlines, tape time to fill or other demands I could just sit…

Keane On Upstyling!

Ok, so couture might be pushing it a little but the pieces I have up styled for this feature with the help of Zip Yard in Dun Laoghaire are one-off pieces. Never underestimate the power of a good seamstress or alterations person.  Believe me, when you find one, hold on to her/him. They are worth their weight in gold. I love the reassurance of knowing no-one else will be wearing the same as me, so up-styling is my new hobby. I love shopping in Charity shops, Second hand shops, Vintage shops or cheap online websites and making alterations to create…
