She's only been in New York a matter of months, but Irish model Clara McSweeney is already one to watch.

The Cork native (18) moved to the Big Apple over the summer after being snapped up by the world's most exclusive modelling agency IMG Models, which represents Miranda Kerr, Gisele Bundchen and Gigi Hadid.

And she has been busy during Bridal Fashion Week, making her debut for designer Naeem Kham's floral inspired bridal showcase.

McSweeney, from Macroom, was discovered by model boss Andrea Roche during an open day when she was just 15 years old. After spending the last three years cultivating an impressive reputation on the Irish fashion circuit, she decided to try her hand at the international modelling scene after finishing her Leaving Cert in June.
