In 2007, Úna received a distinction for her MA in Fashion Artefact and her graduate collection, ‘RETREAT’, won the London College of Fashion ”Off Catwalk Award for Design 2009”. Ms Burke’s journey has been one of positive influence with the strong desire and conviction to showcase and emanate change through the telling of specific stories embedded within each collection she creates every season.
Each piece produced in Úna’s South London Atelier is crafted entirely by hand using British and Italian Vegetable Tanned leathers, earning the brand the ‘Positive Luxury Butterfly Trust Mark’.

These pieces are designed for the discerning customer who appreciates quality and creativity.
