creating a storm
She’s been creating and sewing her own designs since she was nine years old, so it comes as no surprise that Storm is making her mark in the fashion world.
“I’ve been dreaming up and hand-crafting my own designs since I was a little girl. From clothing and homewares to gift cards and decorations… I’ve always been the type to think ‘I can make that myself’ and I so I would.
“I get a lot of pleasure from being creative… in any shape or form. For me creativity is not prejudice and it doesn’t matter if I’m a kitchen or in front of a canvas, I just love thinking outside the box and making things beautiful.”
Since finding love with her now husband, Ronan Keating, and moving into the role of step mum to his three children, Storm has redirected her creative talents away from television sets to individual projects, which allow her to manage both a dynamic career as well as a nurturing family household. With the success of her initial collaborations and a refreshingly grounded and warm personality, Storm is already proving to be a force to be reckoned with.
“Storm seduced us with her talent, passion, and her incredible eye for detail. Stivaleria Cavallin stands for perfection in design and fit, and these cuissardes are indeed magnificent. There is everything we love: the clever essential lines, the virtuoso details, the sculptural beauty, the impeccable elegance and colour nuances that sparkle energy and character. Most rewarding for me was to see our craftspeople proud and excited about the end product – they are the most opinionated folk having a few decades of fashion boots experience”.
