Orla Kiely announces Royal College
of Art scholarship programme

Irish fashion designer Orla Kiely has set up a scholarship to enable a textiles student to study at London-based university, Royal College of Art (RCA). The scholarship will cover the tuition costs for the two-year programme. Orla will also offer the student a summer placement at her design studio in Clapham, South London where she or he will gain invaluable hands-on experience working alongside Orla and her team. Orla graduated from the RCA in 1992 before founding the ‘Orla Kiely Partnership’ with her husband Dermott Rowan. The company is soon to celebrate its 20th anniversary. While Orla began designing hats before moving on to handbags, the label has expanded and now includes a ready-to-wear line and homeware collection alongside lifestyle products.
