I'm starting to dress like my mother, says Dawn O'Porter

Vintage queen Dawn O'Porter says she loves wearing old-fashioned clothes as they remind her of her late mother.

The broadcaster (36), who is married to Irish actor Chris O'Dowd gave birth to the couple's first son, Art, earlier this year.

Since then she's embraced vintage fashion more than ever, especially trends from her childhood.

"Maybe [dressing this way has] something to do with becoming a mum and remembering my own mum," Dawn said.

"I'd rather go around vintage shops and discover something that I love than buy something from the high street that four million other people have."

Along with having her own fashion label, BOB by DOP - which counts Amy Huberman and Vogue Williams amongst its fans - Dawn also recently opened her second pop-shop in London.

The working mum admitted she's busier than ever since going into business.

"It's hideous, I'm the busiest person ever," she said.

"I usually work between 11am and 4pm at the shop - I have the baby in the morning, get home for bath time and then I write in the evenings."

While she might be rushed off her feet juggling her personal life and work, Dawn told the Huffington Post she's happy to side step broadcasting for a while as she's found her passion in fashion.

"This is definitely where I see myself now."
