My old uniform

Stella Tatten - Model


“I went to Loreto Abbey in Dalkey and loved my uniform. This picture of me in a group (I am the tallest) was taken when I had just finished 5th year and was going into 6th last year.

“The uniform was a petrol-green crested jumper, a skirt in the same colour, a striped blouse and black socks. We also had a coat in the same colour. You could wear the skirt any length, but we always wore it to the knee.

“I liked it because it meant being part of my school and because I liked wearing the same thing – there is no fuss in the morning and you don’t have to pick out outfits to wear. No one ever complained about the uniform . . .

“I started modelling in 4th year (with Morgan the Agency) when I was 15 and I’m hoping to continue to do it part-time though my plan is to study science in UCD.”
