I am a 22 year old from Dublin, Ireland and I am currently living and studying in Milan. I study Fashion Styling and Visual Merchandising at the Domus Academy. Before coming to Italy, I studied Art History and Social Computing in UCD in Dublin. I love life in Milan, especially people watching and taking in Milanese street style.

I moved over to Milan in February 2020 and instantly fell in love with the city not only is the style here incredible but the people are so warm, friendly and welcoming. I am studying fashion styling and visual merchandising in Domus Academy in the vibrant canal district of Naviglio. Domus is a design school that offers very hands-on interactive courses, like the one I am attending!

These pictures of myself are taken between the Duomo di Milano (Milan Cathedral) and Parco Sempione.

The Duomo’s construction began in 1386; it is a gothic church that boasts wonderful flying buttresses and intricate gargoyles.

Parco Sempione is the biggest park in Milan. On the weekends it is filled with people enjoying the sunshine; in the mornings doing yoga and other workouts and in the afternoon having an aperol and people watching!
