Well, let me start from the beginning. In secondary school I never knew what I wanted to do. I was always good with my hands but never academic. I was let’s say, a visual learner! My favourite class was home economics. My grandmother thought me how to Knit and sew and in 6th year, I designed and helped make my own debs dress! So that was it! I wanted to do fashion design but getting pregnant at 21 put a lot of my plans on halt my career just seemed like a distant dream.
I adore my kids, Emma and Ruari, and they always come first but there was something missing in me. I knew I had more to give, than just a wife and mammy of 2. So when my daughter was 2 years of age I went back to college and completed my diploma in dressmaking. I started Crafty Couture in 2007, where I did clothing alterations, logo embroidery and made fabric handcrafted gifts. I adore anything fabric!
This was all going great and business was flying, but I was still not 100% content and I knew something was missing. I knew I didn’t just have a passion for fashion but a WANT for it. I studied different designers that interested me and envied anyone involved in the fashion industry. So in 2014 I returned to college and completed my Personal Stylist course which I loved every minute of and had finally found the perfect job for me. But business was slow and found it hard to promote my services.
