The multi award-winning Portadown designer has many awards to her name, but now she's got a prestigious Bafta to add to the clutch.
The former Portadown College art student is celebrating after recently adding the Bafta to her accolades for work on the popular period drama Downton Abbey.
The down-to-earth designer said she felt pressure having to get up and talk to such a distinguished throng after the "very heavy award" was handed over by actress Wumni Mosaka.
"And I was then rushed backstage for an immediate interview with Jenni Falconer," she added. "I haven't a clue what I said."
In 2011 she picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Costumes alongside her colleague Susannah Buxton, and has also won American Costumes Designs Awards.

You are being overly critical of your best friend or romantic partner. Even if you think their plans are ill founded, you should keep such thoughts to yourself. Undermining a person's enthusiasm will only create resentment. If you're tired of being implicated in your loved one's harebrained schemes, have a heart to heart discussion. A temporary separation can help each of you figure out what you want from your relationship. It may be time for you to seek a more practical companion.More
