Offaly Native Margaret Molloy has won the Fashion and Design award at the inaugural IrishCentral Arts & Creativity Awards in America.

Margaret started the #WearingIrish campaign in March 2016 to coincide with St. Patrick's Day, but has gone on to champion the work of Irish designers and gave Irish fashion the visibility she says it deserves.
