Taking risks, dressing down and loving what you wear: this week’s Smart Casual is now live

Taking risks, dressing down and loving what you wear: this week’s Smart Casual is now live

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


Last week, fans of Smart Casual gathered in the lovely surroundings of Le Pain Quotidien in Kildare Village for an audience with influencer, model and fashion designer Emma Louise Connolly. Having studied fashion in university, Emma Louise began her career as a model before finding her voice on social media, and as her Instagram grew and evolved in popularity, Emma Louise began to find opportunities to showcase her own style and interest in the art of fashion. A series of capsule collections with Nasty Gal followed, and now, she’s gearing up to start her very own brand.

In front of an audience eager to ask their own burning questions, co-host Marie Kelly quizzed Emma Louise on her style inspirations, her love of fun and looseness in fashion and her best tips for dressing up and down in a way that suits you.


Episode 26 of Smart Casual, in collaboration with Kildare Village, is available now on SoundCloud and iTunes – make sure to like, subscribe and rate us wherever you enjoy your podcasts. Smart Casual is hosted by Marie Kelly, Édaein O’Connell and Sarah Rickard and produced by Erin Lindsay. If you can’t wait to download, have a listen to the new episode below:
