You may or may not have heard that a couple of weeks ago I participated in a very exciting Google hangout with the incredible Orla Kiely and some of my favourite talents from the blogging and magazine world. The hangout was to celebrate Orla’s new Heattech collection with Uniqlo, and we were offered the opportunity to ask about the inspiration behind the collection, what we can expect next- and a little about the design process- something I was exceptionally excited about. With Orla’s presentations being my ‘I HAVE to go to’ during fashion week it was amazing to have a small peek into the real Kiely world and even a nosy at her beautiful pad!
My beautiful pal Carrie hosted the hangout, and did an absolutely stellar job of keeping her cool (even in my tiny square I felt a bit nervous)- making it super fun (even if I did have to refrain from several bouts of the giggles) and certainly aided with my question asking. I was so thrilled with the answers given, and can assure you this lady is one of the most inspirational in fashion, what I’d give for her to design my whole wardrobe! At least I can pick up some Uniqlo bits… You can check out the hangout below- certainly worth a wee watch!
