Roscommon-born and London-based designer Úna Burke has been causing waves for quite a while, with her luxury leather creations attracting the patronage of luminaries such as Daphne Guinness, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Now comes the news that the ultimate female action heroine, Katniss Everdeen, as played by Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, is a fan. In the latest installment to The Hunger Games franchise, the actress can be seen wearing a Úna Burke arm brace. This Irish girl is certainly catching fire.
