Irish-Danish womenswear designer Kirsten Roe is still at university in Dublin - she's studying Textile Design at the National College of Art and Design. But that certainly hasn't stopped her work so far being nothing short of wildly impressive: designs that mix intricacy and fun, delicacy and robustness, are shot with an eye for quirky detail and aesthetic poses. One look at her portfolio, through garments that fizz with creativity, pop with colour, strike you with their cuts, will tell you all you need to know so far.

But in case it misses anything out, we had the chance to offer up some questions for her to answer - part of our ongoing series of Q&As with creative individuals.

How did you get started?
I'm just finishing up studying textiles in college so I feel like I've barely started!

Where do you find inspiration?
Most of my projects start with looking through old family photos, I tend to have an idea of the colours in my mind, but my colour research has mainly come from flicking through photo albums. Inspiration for my project themes usually start with something to do with my life or likes and then it just grows from there.

What risk would you take if you knew you could not fail?
Try something new from the takeaway menu.

What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
I always loved staying at my grandparents house in Bornholm, Denmark. We'd go there during the summer and every second christmas. They lived right beside a forest and beach. It was just the best time, sun or snow.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Lucky Charms a few months ago and I cant stop buying them.

Whose life do you believe you've had the biggest impact on?
My dog, Sammy.

What are you currently working on?
At the moment I'm finishing work for my degree show. Basically just sewing until my eyes hurt.

What's the most challenging thing you've ever created?
Probably a clay glove during my first year of college, it was awful, and my tutor accidentally crushed it with her notebook. I hate clay.

What is something you believe that almost nobody agrees with you on?
Slurping tea is absolutely necessary.

What's the next big step you feel you need to take in your career?
I'm going to take a long nap. And after that, I'd like someone to pay me to make fun things.
