Mrs Robinson inspires Roisin

Roisin spoke to dance music magazine Mixmag about clothes, shopping and her Mrs Robinson hairdo:

"My obsession with vintage clothes started very young because my mum was an antique dealer. I used to go with her to antique fares and jumble sales. From the age of 14 I was dressed in 60s clothes.

I take inspiration from films, but less the actresses and more the glamorous roles they play, like Sharon Stone in 'Casino' and the actress in 'The Graduate' - I have my hair styled on her at the moment.

Hunting for clothes is an escape - a way to take my mind off the gig that I'm doing or the song that I'm writing. I love shopping for jewellery in Australian pawn shops and there's a great store in London called Rellik, which sells ace stuff. But I do wear new stuff too. I don't just go round like some sort of antique. I mix it up!"

Thanks! I have corrected it. In the original article they also wrote "porn shop" instead of "pawn shop". I wonder what porn jewellery looks like?
