Emma Benson

THE creations of two Fermanagh fashion students are set to be showcased on the catwalk.
Young fashion designers Annmarie McLoughlin and Emma Benson will take part in the Ulster University Graduate Fashion Show at St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast on Friday May 19th. 
The young designers will finally reveal their runway collections as they prepare to launch their fashion careers, both locally and globally. 
Annmarie McLoughlin, from Boho is a final year fashion design student said: “Ulster University’s fashion design programme is dedicated to creating an environment that encourages young designers to really push the boundaries and that is a very exciting environment to learn in. The graduate show is a momentous occasion, because for most of us it is the first time that we will see our collection on a runway.”
Classmate Emma Benson who is from Tamlaght added; “This show is the culmination of years of hard work and it will be great to see that displayed on the catwalk.”
The show provides an invaluable platform for the students as previous Ulster University graduates have gone on to work for international designers as well as major retailers including House of Fraser, Inishmaan and Douglas & Graham.
A variety of collections will be on show on the night with students creating pieces of print, knit, weave and embroidery across high-end conceptual garments, accessories and ready-to-wear designs.
Anyone who wishes to support the local girls can buy tickets at for £15.
