Success for LSAD Fashion Graduates at Kerry Fashion Week 2016

Several recent graduates of LIT’s School of Art & Design (LSAD) Fashion department were among the award winners at the recent Irish Fashion Industry Awards 2016, held as part of Kerry Fashion Week. The Winners were announced at the Irish Fashion Industry Awards ceremony on Friday 4th March 2016 in the Europe Hotel & Resort, Killarney.

Among the winners at Kerry Fashion Week 2016 were:
· Colin Horgan - Winner of ‘Image Breakthrough Designer of the Year’
· Alanna McIntyre - Winner of ‘One to watch’ award
· Greta Lelyte – Winner of ‘Kerry Fashion Designer of Year’
· Danielle Romerill – Irish Designer of the Year

These recent successes build further on LSAD’s international reputation as a centre of excellence in Fashion Design. Last year, LIT launched a new International Fashion Incubator (IFIL), housed in the refurbished Merriman House on Lock Quay in Limerick City, designed to create employment as well as link the city centre into the international fashion industry. This new creative space which will host approximately 100 students in a single fashion hub in the heart of the city will enable LIT to increase the number of students in fashion design and related disciplines and will build on the ground breaking work that Limerick School of Art & Design has achieved in the fashion and textile sector, further enhancing Limerick’s position at the forefront of Irish fashion, both nationally and internationally.

LIT extends its congratulations to all the winners and best wishes for continued success. ​
