Designer Orla Kiely busy flying the Irish fashion flag!

Dublin designer Orla Kiely has been awarded an OBE for her services to the fashion industry. Irish ambassador to Britain Bobby McDonagh presented the award to Ms Kiely at the Irish Embassy in London last week. The 48-year-old grew up in Dublin and studied fashion and textiles at the National College of Art. Ms Kiely now has two stores in London and her products, including clothes, fragrances, eyewear and furniture, are sold in 30 countries. Can we say jealous, much???
