An Ulster University graduate from Co Armagh has caught the attention of the global fashion industry with a vibrant collection of knitwear inspired by the wild flowers on one of Ireland's Aran Islands.

Jordan Currie from Portadown, who graduates next week with a degree in textile art, design and fashion, is helping to put Northern Ireland on the fashion map after being approached to show her collection at Vancouver Fashion Week.

She also features as a designer on Not Just A Label, the world's leading designer platform showcasing the most talented contemporary fashion graduates across the globe.

Jordan said she had always loved fashion and was completely "fascinated" by how people style themselves.

"The way you dress has a huge impact on how you feel," she added. "I am hugely excited about my future and I already have some promising career prospects.

"I would love to work for a knitwear company as a designer or potentially carry on working under my J Knitwear brand, developing it further to become self-employed."
