Worth an estimated £26 billion, fashion is the UK’s largest creative industry. It’s also an overcrowded market where competition is stiff. But, in 2009, when young designer Riona Treacy left her home in Northern Ireland and headed for London, known as the mecca of fashion, she was determined to find success.

Fast forward 13 years and the former Rathmore Grammar School student has realised her dream. Since the launch of her Riona Treacy label in 2012, the Belfast woman has established a reputation for designs that are hallmarked by quality, beauty and, that much sought-after but often elusive ingredient — comfort.
