Graduate news: Jodie Byrne

One of our 2009 graduates of the BA (Hons) Textiles and Surface Design course, Jodie Byrne, has recently set up her own online boutique business.

"Jodie Byrne, 25, had followed in the footsteps of the famous Percy French song by seeking her fortune in London but has now returned home to Newcastle, Co Down the place that inspires her the most to establish an online boutique - http://www.jodiebyrne.com - selling unique Danish home decor.

“You don’t have to live the big city life to run a successful business. Waking up every day to the beauty of the mountains and the rugged seascapes inspires the style of interiors that I have sourced for the online boutique,” Jodie said.

Jodie graduated from Bucks New University in 2009 with a BA (Hons) in Textiles and Surface Design. During her studies, Jodie pursued a keen interest in interior design and printed textiles, publicly and internationally exhibiting her own designs at top industry Trade shows; Indigo Paris, Surtex New York and New Designers London.

Her new online shop includes an eclectic mix of country style furnishings with cutting edge industrial style home ware and vintage inspired items.
