- As a little girl I would make dresses out of pillow cases and colour them with crayola markers, spend hours scribbling shoes and dreamed of working in the fashion industry, not much has changed since then. Im studying at Limerick School of Art and Design which I love,in my third year of fashion design. My favourite designers at the moment are Haider Rick Owens, Hussein Chalayan,Iris Van Herpen,Stella McCartney,Steffie Christaens , Gareth Pugh and Anne Sophie Madsen (and the list goes on and on and on!). I am driven and excited about fashion and look forward to the future.

Vivian Maier 1926-2009
Vivian Maier photographs of down town Chicago were recently discovered at an auction. The photos are taken between 1950-1990. She lived in Chicago for most of her life. The collection includes over 100,000 mostly medium format negitives, thousands of prints and countless roles of undeveloped film. The man who bought the collection wanted to learn more about Vivian, when he began to look for her he found out she had died a few days previously. He went to the camera shop, where she was a customer and people describe her as a private person who spoke her mind. I think she paints a very clear picture of what it was like living in Chicago.
