Realising that Cork City lacked a creative platform to celebrate and promote the incredible fashion design talent that was graduating from the city’s colleges as well as home grown talent, the team set about establishing a week of events that has grown to attract national and international attention and acclaim.


Outside of the calibre of guests it attracts to Cork city each year, the week provides prosperous opportunities for fashion designers to progress their careers in the industry as well as injecting vibrancy and generating business into the retail trade.

The week brings together Irish designers, milliners, photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, models, fashion buyers, fashion retailers, high street giants, fashion PR experts and top celebrities to name but a few.

Cork Fashion Week has partnered with Mercedes-Benz MSL to ensure the week of events is recognised with the best fashion weeks globally.


January 2016, Emer and Vivienne were recognised for their dedication and contribution to growing the local fashion industry through Cork Fashion Week at a reception in Cork City Hall by the Lord Mayor, further sealing the importance of the week of events that year after year, supports, mentors, promotes and establishes some of the best talent in the Irish Fashion Industry.
