After showing his second collection, Lady Gaga wore two outfits from the collection for her impromptu performances in Sydney in 2011 delivering a new level of fame to the Phoenix Keating label locally and internationally. In 2012 Keating was invited to show on schedule at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, and in April of 2013 Keating had his debut showing, launching the label to a new level.

In particular, a New York PR agency who asked Phoenix to hold a small showing in New York and in October of 2013 Phoenix Keating made his New York debut to rave reviews. “While most fledgling Australian designers are scratching their asses trying to fund the next collection, Keating has already done multiple solo runway shows/presentations in Sydney, including his Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia debut in April this year,” wrote about the New York showing. In the past two years, Phoenix Keating has garnered increasing attention from the Australian and international media and has become a favourite with leading stylists, celebrities and editors alike.
