Dundee grad scores first sale to Erin O’Connor

Hayley Scanlan and Erin O’Connor

University of Dundee graduate Hayley Scanlan, 25, made the perfect start to her career as a textile designer by making her first sale to model Erin O’Connor.
   O’Connor, who also chairs the British Fashion Council, was in Dundee to open the Dundee Degree Show 2009 at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design last week.
   At the end of the show, the University says that O’Connor made a beeline backstage to order a white leather studded jacket from Scanlan. The jacket has black screen-printed drip panels and gold and silver studs.
   ‘I am a person like anyone else—I like to shop and I love fashion and when I saw that jacket I thought, “I have to have that first!”’ she said.
   The Degree Show opened to the public on May 23 and runs at the Vision Building until June 6.
