A Drimnagh native has been shortlisted for the final of a prestigious international fashion competition.

Aoife Nolan has been shortlisted for the Professional Clothing Awards Vision competition as one of the final ten out of 300 entries. The award aims to reward exceptional workwear, corporate clothing and personal protective equipment.

Aoife, a student in Letterkenny Institute of Technology, said she was inspired by shapes and forms found in engines. Her entry required her to create stylish, functional clothing that can be worn for a specific job role.

Speaking about her experience, Aoife said: “I’m delighted to get the opportunity to show my work on such an international stage. I have learned so much about fabrics and designing workwear, it has been a great project.”
The Professional Clothing Awards Vision Competition final will be held on 20 June 2018.
