Maria Fusco is Ireland’s answer to Iris Apfel. Her fashion choices are a lifestyle and, even down to the details like her perfume, she makes careful decisions. Having spent years in the industry, she knows how to put together a look that transcends the fashion trends of the day.

We chatted to her about the pieces she is wearing and how she would best describe her look.

“My style is feminine,” she says. “Elegant with a dash of flirty and whole lot of attitude. Style is not rocket science, it’s about self-expression and should be effortless and beautiful.”Shades: My mum’s vintage glasses. I had candy rose lenses inserted, when I went pink.
