MODEL Aine O'Gorman has returned to Dublin for her studies but, the catwalk queen isn't hanging up her heels just yet.

The Tipperary model (left) spent three years working with designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Jasper Conran and Vivienne Westwood.

Now back home to pursue a degree in business in Trinity College, the red-haired beauty has been snapped up by Andrea Roche.

"We are honoured to be representing one of Ireland's model successful international models," Andrea said of her new signing.

Aine (21) was spotted at a music festival in 2011 and decided to gamble in a year out to try her hand at modelling in London.

"I ended up taking pictures in a bright orange ripped t-shirt in the middle of a field while drunk guys jumped on my back and my poor friend sat on the ground holding two hot dogs," she said of the day she was discovered.

She signed with Elite models who represented her European interests and with Major in New York and spent three years there as her red hair and alabaster skin made her hugely popular with fashion bosses.
