Una Burke uses traditional and conventional leather working techniques to create non-conventional and extraordinary fashion pieces that cross the boundaries between functional design and art.

Though her pieces may be perceived as having a classic S&M aesthetic, Burke insists that these pieces are designed to accentuate the female form. This Roscommon born designer has had her work worn by style icons Rhianna, Lady Gaga and Daphne Guinness.
