A LOCAL woman who ran a successful fashion business in London has returned home to launch a new project in her native South Kilkenny.
Miriam Cuddihy was born, reared and schooled in Hugginstown, a place she was proud to call home until the bright lights of the English capital beckoned but after 14 years she is thrilled to be back to her roots.
She was a Colour Me Beautiful image consultant in London and at the weekend she launched a similar business which she will run from a studio in her Hugginstown home.
“I am happy to be bringing a top class business project to my home area and I am confident that it will be a success as both men and women nowadays are very conscious of their image, colouring and style,” Miriam told The Reporter.
Colour Me Beautiful is again the name to remember and the business will bring the best of fashion to the community, just as Miriam did when she worked so successfully on the other side of the Irish Sea.
Dedicated followers of fashion will be assured of a warm welcome and top class service as Miriam will always be happy to give advice on colour and make up, personal styling, men’s image and corporate image and personal branding.
“People can call to see me or I will be happy to visit them in their own homes,”she added.
Miriam is also a life coach, small business coach, corporate and executive coach.
She admits to being in love with her confession. “My work is also my hobby,” she said.
“I love colour and fashion. Image really matters in today’s world. I am really looking forward to meeting and chatting to people from the greater South Kilkenny area and indeed from counties in the South East.
“And as a gesture of goodwill, I am happy to give Kilkenny Reporter readers, men and women, €15 off their consultations.”
Early school years for Miriam were at Monroe National School, followed by secondary education at St Brigid’s College, Callan and then Waterford Institute of Technology.
