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.

It has since blossomed and Margaret has launched a directory of Irish designers and she continues to show her support to Irish designers, hoping to gain exposure in the US. She regularly posts about the designers on her vibrant Twitter account. 

When she isn't advocating for Irish designers Margaret is the global chief marketing officer at Siegel + Gale, while also taking on leadership roles in other companies like the Gerson Lehrman Group.

She is also hosting the #WearingIrish NYC 2018 event this year, and people can find out more on

She has also published in the Havard Business Review and Forbes.
