Holman Lee Agency

The Holman-Lee Model Agency is one of the longest-established modelling agencies in Ireland, and is now a family run agency.

The agency was founded 33 years ago by Celia Holman Lee, one of Ireland’s top models who is now one of the country’s foremost fashion presenters on TV3’s Ireland AM and RTÉ’s Off the Rails.

Celia Holman Lee is this year’s winner of the prestigious KFW (Kerry Fashion Weekend) Best Dressed Woman in Ireland Award 2011. Celia was presented with her specially commissioned Killarney Crystal trophy and her KFW gong, a doll created in her own image, by Orla Diffily, organiser of Kerry Fashion Weekend.

celiaCelia also won the first ever inaugural Style Icon Award at The Peter Mark VIP style awards on 25th March 2011, which was held at the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. The aim of the award is to recognise an individual who has made a significant and long-term impact on the style industry in Ireland. Key traits of the winner include an admirable work ethic, the desire to foster and develop new talent, the sharing of expertise and the ability to act as an ambassador for Irish style. It was fitting that Celia Holman Lee was awarded the Style Icon Award in the tenth annual ceremony. She was an immensely popular winner, receiving a standing ovation from the 300-strong crowd. Celia will be a very tough act to follow at next year’s awards!
