Niamh has a background in fashion history and curation. She worked in fashion programming for the British Council for seven years where she led the International Fashion Showcase – a project which showcases and supports emerging designers from over 70 countries during London Fashion Week – and created strategic programmes such as Fashion DNA, which aims to support fashion ecosystems across the world to develop business support and creative opportunities for local designers.
Her work with the British Council encompassed architecture, design and fashion and intersected with disciplines across arts and culture.
Prior to joining the British Council Niamh worked on a Centre for Sustainable Fashion project as a freelance curator, with the National Trust as a Young Curator and across a variety of cultural exhibitions and arts projects.
