I've no passion for fashioning own label, I'm too quirky – Roz

SHE is one of Ireland's most fashion-savvy ladies, but model Roz Purcell has no desire to pick up a sketch book and create her own clothing line.

"I love clothes and I have an out-there sense of style, but I don't think I would design," she told the Diary.

"There are so many great Irish designers out there. I've seen the work, sweat and tears that goes into it and I don't think I'm ready to take it on.

"I also have none of the training, so I don't think it's really for me."

But the Tipperary native, left, would not rule out working on a diffusion line for a big brand, like Holly Willoughby and Myleene Klass have done.

"If someone approached me about working on a collection, I'd definitely be interested in that," she said.

"But I would have to warn them that I have a pretty weird sense of style and like unusual things. They would need to be ok with that."

Roz and some of her catwalk friends are launching a new range of make-up next month for model agent Andrea Roche's line.

"I'm really excited," Roz said. "I haven't seen the pictures from the shoot yet – when we get all the packaging and everything it will feel more real."
