Úna was born in Ireland and is now based in London. She is an MA graduate of London College of Fashion, specialising in Fashion Artefact. She studied her BA in Fashion Design at Limerick School of Art and Design. Before founding her label, she worked previously with Philip Treacy and Burberry. Her signature style is luxury leather craftsmanship, studded panels and strips often in sculptural form.
Una creates leather objects that are both visually captivating and technically challenging. They are pieces of wearable art which are indefinable as particular garments, preventing them from being placed into the conventional categories of the fashion industry. They are free to exist just as the objects that they are, interpreted independently by each individual.
