She was discovered by retailer Marianne Gunn O'Connor, owner of Otokia, Dublin's leading designer, while she was knitting in the corner of Bewley's Coffee House in Dublin. She was persuaded to present a show of her knitwear. This was unveiled to great acclaim in February 1987.
Now she goes on whirlwind tours to New York, Egypt, and other corners of the globe, showing off the breathtaking inventiveness of her designs.
Keogh works mostly with cashmere and more recently crystal. Her pieces are handmade by expert Irish knitters. Since 1994, she is showing regular seasonal catwalk shows of her garments.
