Maria lives with her 14 year old son Martin in Roscommon, Ireland. She has enjoyed fashion for as long as she can remember. Buying Vogue magazine aged 13 years and pouring over the pages for hours. Where people saw ads, she saw fashion, she saw themes, she saw trends, she always knew fashion was her calling. She has worked in fashion retail management for over 30 years, from Dublin to London to Galway with High- end fashion retailers like Brown Thomas, Armani, Harrods, Jaeger and Selfridges
Working and learning with the best in the industry was a must for her. To appreciate fabrics, understand fit and cut, this is the detail that differentiates a great outfit. With an innate love and understanding of fashion, she returned home to Castlecoote in Roscommon, to take a position with Carraig Donn before setting up her own fashion advisory service in January 2019.
With a lifetime of knowledge and experience, she wanted to give back. Sharing the tricks of the trade, the do’s and don’ts and helping women find their own style.
Maria’s business is already evolving from offering Fashion Master Classes, Wardrobe Makeovers and Personal Shopping to working closely with the Dept of Environment promoting sustainability in schools, revamping outdated Boutiques to giving afternoon Hen Party Fashion Master Classes in the G Hotel.
