Úna Burke at The Cat and The Moon
Our Lily Lolly Craftfest window showcases the work of Roscommon born designer Una Burke. Una will be coming to Sligo for the Conversations With Designer's event which takes place at the Factory Performance Space on Thursday evening at 6.30pm alongside MC Eddie Shanahan, Deirdre Duffy, Ana Faye, Matt Jones Woodturner and Oonagh Burke McCann
Úna Burke set up her eponymous fashion label in 2010 producing leather accessories which are timeless, elegant, considered and sculptural. They are designed for the discerning customer who appreciates quality and creativity. Each piece is crafted entirely by hand in the Úna Burke Atelier in South London and made using the highest quality Vegetable Tanned leathers and solid brass fittings from the UK and Italy, earning the brand the 'Positive Luxury Butterfly Trust Mark'.
With such an Avant Garde design style, it's little wonder that the brand has developed such a strong celebrity following both nationally and internationally. Among the most prominent of these are Rihanna, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Cindy Crawford, Fifth Harmony, Nicki Minaj, Ellen Pompeo, Rachel Stevens, Una Healy, Heidi Klum, Haifa Wehbe, Doda and Elva.
Featuring regularly in top publications like Vogue, Collezioni, W, Numero, i-D and Marie Claire, Una Burke Leather has shown at Fashion Weeks in London, Paris, Milan and New York as well as Shanghai, Rome, Hong Kong and Singapore. They are available to buy in over 40 fashion stores and galleries worldwide.
