London Fashion Week can't get enough of Irish designer Danielle Romeril.

Danielle is showing for the fourth season in a row and, crucially, has secured a highly coveted, high-visibility weekend time slot in the schedule.

The talented designer, who comes from Clonskeagh in Dublin and is a graduate of the Limerick School of Art and Design, has been chosen for the NEWGEN programme, which is sponsored by Topshop and singles out the best emerging talent. Previous NEWGEN winners have included no less than Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane and Erdem.

The 62nd London Fashion Week, which will showcase the SS16 collections from 77 brands, kicks of on September 18.

Speaking to the Irish Independent, Danielle said: "It's great to have such an excellent platform to bring your vision to the world, to be on schedule during London Fashion Week and having the NEWGEN seal of approval makes people sit up and take notice of what you are doing."

Her acclaimed AW15 collection featuring leather fringing, quilting, capes and Scottish tartans will arrive shortly into her exclusive Irish stockist, Clodagh Shorten's Samui boutique in Cork.

Other Irish designers taking part in this year's London Fashion Week include Paul Costelloe, Simone Rocha, Orla Kiely and JW Anderson.
