Una Burke, winner of Ireland’s Future Maker Student Award in 2009 is getting noticed by just about everybody, including Lady Gaga! Una was commissioned by Lady Gaga to design at least one outfit for her 2010 tour. Daphne Guiness is a collector. Una’s collection was featured in Vogue Italia in 2010, photographed by Steven Klein and styled by Patti Wilson. (We’re looking for the photos.)
Una Burke on Her Designs
A brilliant young woman, Una Burke’s designs are inspired by historic tragic events and body accessories that convey stages of a healing process. Her conceptual, wearable art pieces are associated with the cause, the physical and psychological effect and the healing stages of human trauma.
This astounding video and images about the Fall 2011 collection was made by Andreas Waldschütz and Steffan Sappert, with styling by Adia Trischler.
These images are from her Fall 2011 Meta.Morph Collection. This entire conceptual presentation of young talent is not only amazing but truly inspiring and emotionally moving! See website. Anne
