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.
