Congratulations to Úna Burke, who was awarded Designer of the Year at the Irish Fashion Innovations Awards on Tuesday night.
The Vauxhall Fashion Scout designer is renown for her leather creations and this award signifies Úna’s recognition as an outstanding design talent. The technically challenging pieces are inspired by medieval war armour and medical braces, yet are extremely wearable without alienating the original concept. As stated by Úna herself, “They are free to exist just as the objects that they are, interpreted independently by each individual.”
Well done Úna!
