Last week designer Niamh Deering won the Gillette Venus “Embrace Your Dream Dress” competition. From Celbridge in Co. Kildare, Niamh studies fashion design in The Limerick School of Art and Design and made it to the final which saw five other student finalists from colleges around the country battle it out for the overall title.

Niamh claims to have been totally shocked by the win-"I can’t believe I won! I really hope this award helps me on the road to becoming a successful fashion designer”. I take a peek inside the young designers wardrobe…
