Cork Fashion Week Designer of The Year 2011
Alice Halliday, 22... born on 17th May 1988, in Bristol England.
Grew up in the countryside in an old farm house on top of the hill in Bluid, Skibbereen, Co.Cork, Ireland.
My childhood and the environment in which I grew up strongly influence my work, West Cork is a very magical, Holy place I think.
Nature is a huge inspiration to me, I believe we need to take action to look after the environment- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! The majority of the things I make are made from recycled materials.

I studied Art and Design at Warwickshire College, Leamington Spa, England. In May 2007 I graduated from the BTEC Diploma with a distinction and Student of the Year award.
I did my degree at UCA Epsom, Surrey, England. Graduating this June with a 2:1 (1st off a first) in BA (Hons) Fashion Design.
My 7 outfit final collection was featured at Graduate Fashion Week, in London on the 6th of June.
