    Orla Kiely

    Orla Kiely is one of our most successful fashion designers and businesswomen... Her quirky, retro designs adorn everything from homeware, to very popular bags, to dresses and even cars!

    Her business has been going from strength to strength - sales increased by almost 12 million euro last year – despite the difficult economic climate. No doubt it was helped by the exposure from some of her high-profile fans: Carole Middleton and her daughter Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.

    Miriam caught with her at a launch of a special travel coffee mug she designed for Kenco coffee
