Griffith College photography student Karen Miley from Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare was the winner of an exciting competition held for final year students on the BA Photographic Media programme.

Karen submitted this ‘Sleeping Beauty’ fashion shot and won a trip to London for Fashion Week, with the chance to take part in a professional catwalk shoot as part of an international competition.

Karen said: “To me, fashion is one of the arts; the designer creates something beautiful from the sketch to the finished piece. Fashion photography is a true love of mine.”

She travelled to London on Friday, September 20, and got the chance to shoot two live catwalk shows from the photographer’s pit. Karen’s Fashion Week shots are competing against those of nine other UK university students for the overall top prize.
