BFA gossip: Roisin reveals her fashion plans

26 November 2008


As we exclusively told you yesterday, Ireland's hottest fashion export Roisin Murphy has just signed with Storm model agency. When we caught up with the former Moloko singer at last night's British Fashion Awards, she gave us the inside scoop. ‘It's not so much about the modelling, but the fashion,' she said. ‘I decided that although I have always loved fashion and been immersed in it for twenty years, I felt now was the time to actually take it seriously, you know have my own voice in the industry and be represented. I would love to do a campaign and who knows maybe even do some designing? I wouldn't rule it out.' However, despite her new status as a fashion force to be reckoned with Roisin confessed that she still agonises about what to wear before going out. ‘Oh God I was so late tonight, had no idea what to wear and spent hours trying to get to grips with an amazing Roksanda Ilincic dress - but there was too much netting! So had to settle for this vingate frock I found under my bed!'
