Roz Purcell: ‘Bridesmaids take a shine to my metallic blazers'
She’s gone from being a top model to a top designer – and now her suits are becoming a hit with bridesmaids.
Roz Purcell’s collection with Scribe of London has also been launched in House of Fraser in the Dundrum Town Centre and has been going down a treat with shoppers.
“The new collection is going brilliantly. As you might have seen at the VIP Style Awards, I wore a long blazer. We’re bringing out a limited collection of long blazer jackets and they all come in metallic colours,” she told the Diary.
“I’ve had a few requests from ladies who wanted to wear them the day after their wedding.
“They’re also becoming quite popular as bridesmaids’ outfits as well, which is great,” she added.
Her suits also have a few celebrity fans with Winning Streak presenter Sinead Kennedy donning a navy one for their promotional pictures and models Sarah Morissey and Vivienne Connolly have also sported them in the past.
The brunette beauty has always said she’d wear a good power suit over a dress any day.
“You feel so comfortable in a power suit,” she said. “I hate wearing dresses.
“Jump suits and power suits are totally in now; it’s something that you can wear again as well as mixing and matching different styles and colours.”
Meanwhile, the 24-year-old is also known for her food brand Natural Born Feeder and she’ll be doing a number of demonstrations at Taste of Dublin over the coming days.
The Tipperary native will be at the Skillery stand in association with the National Dairy Council.
“I’m doing two slots tomorrow and two again on Friday – I’m
really looking forward to it,” she said.
She also revealed that her first cookbook will be out before Christmas.
“I’m in the process of doing the book at the moment. It should be out in December,” she said.
The former Miss Universe Ireland has been pitted against Rosanna Davison, who is also releasing her own book but Roz says there’s enough room for everyone.
“You know what, at the end of the day we’re all promoting the same thing, which is a healthy lifestyle and surely that’s a good thing – degree or no degree,” she said.
“There are lots of healthy food bloggers out there and we all support each other,” she added.
