My archive of styles since 2001 makes me feel sentimental but proud and my new range JHxDS.

Fashion or accessories, which do you enjoy creating more?
I approach both with the same process so it’s hard to choose, both feed each other. I adore accessories,?fashion keeps me on my toes!

Who wears your clothes well?
Strong, intelligent, unconventional and normal women.

How did the Dunnes Stores collaboration come about?
Margaret Heffernan is an amazing woman and wanted me to do “Joanne Hynes” and so it began,?and it’s a wonderful thing.
