The Lockdown Agency was established in 2005 by Directors Emer O’Sullivan & Vivienne Kelly to produce events that provided a platform for Irish design talent, coupled with training models to a higher global standard for local and international events. In 2010, the agency won ‘Most Influential Agency in Ireland’ at the Irish Fashion Awards. In 2012 Lockdown model Kellie Forde appeared on Sky TV’s Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model and since then, their models work locally and internationally in fashion, media and entertainment. Cork Fashion Week, now in it’s 5th year and also a brainchild of the agency, highlights Irish design talent and promotes local independent boutiques and artsits. CFW has created opportunities for winners of the Designer of the Year Award annually to work with many top fashion houses in Europe.
