Pippa O’Connor – Face of Dublin Fashion Festival 2015
Expect to see a lot of Pippa O’Connor Ormond at this year’s Dublin Fashion Festival. One of Ireland’s most successful fashion bloggers and models. Pippa is the face of the festival for 2015, and she’s very excited about it.
I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to head up the event this year. I’ve been following the progress of the festival since it first started and I’m a big fan.
Pippa grew up in Dublin and has long shopped in the capital. “I have great memories of shopping in the city over the years” she says. I love the fact that Dublin can now hold its own in comparison to other fashionable cities around the world. “We’re up there with London and New York in that respect. We can rival any European city now in terms of what we offer. We have great designers and a fantastic array of High Street, designer and vintage stores. I think Dublin has come on in leaps and bounds in terms of fashion.”
Pippa always looks well-presented and on trend, and has what seems an effortless style. “I’m quite easy to please actually” she says. I know what I like and I know what that I can always find what I like when I’m shopping in town. The majority of my clothes are from the High Street. There’s so much choice and many of the High Street stores offer really affordable clothes. You simply have to shop around.”
Pippa admits she’ll definitely be getting a bit of shopping done at this year’s festival, in between presenting a number of events. “I’m so excited to be part of it” she adds. ” And I plan to enjoy every moment of the festival. I am sure everyone else will too.”
