Dressing for the big (and small) moments with Aisling Farinella: this week on Smart Casual

Smart Casual is IMAGE's first fashion podcast, in collaboration with Kildare Village. In our bi-weekly chats, we examine why we wear the clothes we do and deal with personal style in a way that speaks to you.

What is the one outfit you'll always remember? Your wedding dress? A graduation gown? Or just that LBD that made you feel truly like you? The topic of this week's Smart Casual is how we dress for the big (and for the not so big) moments in life. How does dressing give you the confidence to walk into an interview, a school dance or a first date, and feel comfortable and true to your style? What are the boxes an outfit needs to tick to make you feel like your best self? It's all covered by our hosts this week.

Our special guest is stylist and creative consultant Aisling Farinella, who chats to Sarah about how she has stayed at the forefront of Irish design and fashion throughout her varied career. From working on shoots, creative projects, art installations and with Kildare Village on their annual Fashion Scholarship, Aisling is a leading voice in the Irish fashion scene.
