Kerry Fashion Week is jointly organised and produced by Upfront PR and Midpoint Creative. Official Hair Partners were the Sean Taaffe Hair & Beauty Group and official Make-up and Beauty Partners were Lancome Paris.
The inaugural Kerry Fashion Weekend was held in April 2009 with the dual aim of promoting the creatives talents within the Kerry fashion design and boutique industry locally, nationally and internationally and establishing Kerry as an inward fashion tourism destination. With the support of IMAGE Magazine, valued sponsors, local and national media, and the local fashion industry – the event has developed year on year and today is recognised as one of Ireland’s most prestigious national fashion industry events.
