A city girl at heart . . . but the Kingdom of Kerry has my soul.
My professional background is in consumer and fashion PR and event management and I am a graduate of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland. I worked for leading multinationals and top agencies, before setting up my own consultancy Upfront PR in 1995.
Today, I present fashion features on RTE Today, manage PR for fashion & lifestyle brands and produce fashion shows and bespoke events in Ireland and abroad. I also represent highly experienced fashion and commercial models under the brand UPFRONT MODELS (www.upfrontmodelmanagement.com)
I am committed to promoting the Irish fashion industry both at home and internationally, and co-produced with Paul Ruane Ireland's top fashion industry event KFW and co-produced with Marietta Doran the inaugural Ireland Fashion Showcase in New York in association with Irish Design. I was honoured to receive the Mercedes-Benz 'Outstanding Promotion of Irish Design" at CFW in 2016.
Presenting my weekly fashion feature on Ireland's premier afternoon TV programme, TODAY with Maura & Daithi on RTE One, gives me the opportunity to showcase top boutiques, emerging Irish designers and independent retailers to a receptive national audience. It's also a lot of fun !
More than anything, I love working with people - so give me a call on + 353 868399115, drop me an email, or DM me on Twitter or Instagram @orladiffily
