Graduate Una Burke listed among 53 Irish women to watch out for in 2014




A cuff designed by Una was worn by Jennifer Lawrence in character as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, and Nicki Minaj has previously been spotted in one of her bolero jackets. Expect a lot more celebrities to be sporting Úna Burke pieces in 2014.
