This week, we meet the fab­u­lous Ni­amh O’Donoghue aka @cul­tured cuppa, jour­nal­ist with Im­age Mag­a­zine. Work­ing in fash­ion can be de­mand­ing on your wardrobe as there is a ex­pec­ta­tion to dress well ev­ery day but Ni­amh has this down to a fine art. This amaz­ing lady is not only an ex­tremely tal­ented writer whose pieces have breathed new life in to the im­age.ie world but her style is one to be en­vied. We caught up with her to get some tips on how she pulls it all to­gether and also some tips for the up­com­ing Elec­tric Pic­nic.

Tell us about your out­fit to­day? This is my “safe” out­fit – or at least a ver­sion of it. I work in fash­ion, so from Mon­day to Fri­day I gen­er­ally have to wear nice, trendy clothes and stand out a bit more. The week­end means I get to re­lax a lit­tle and dress more com­fort­ably; which usu­ally means black and over­sized.

How would you de­scribe your per­sonal style? My style is con­stantly chang­ing and evolv­ing, and I like to ex­per­i­ment a lot. I don’t like to pi­geon-hole my­self and say that I have a par­tic­u­lar look be­cause I’m not sure if I do just yet. I love wear­ing struc­tured suit pants or well-tai­lored trousers be­cause they make me feel a bit pow­er­ful. But I also like wear­ing loose-fit­ting, boy­ish clothes too that com­pletely cover my sil­hou­ette. And hats. I love hats. My go-to colour pal­lets are greys, off-whites, mint, orange, and black – ob­vi­ously.

What are you most look­ing for­ward to at Elec­tric Pic­nic and what are your fes­ti­vals dos and don’ts? I’m most ex­cited about the good vibes and the at­mo­sphere. It’s all about sur­round­ing your­self with the right peo­ple at big fes­ti­vals. DO: make an ef­fort to meet new peo­ple. oh, and pack ex­tra toi­let roll and baby wipes. DON’T: be nasty and slash any­one’s tent. Peo­ple love other sound peo­ple.
