Harrogate Fashion Week announces show will go ahead this year

by | Mar 9, 2021 | Community, News | 0 comments

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement last week detailing the UK’s roadmap out of lockdown, the organisers of Harrogate Fashion Week have announced that the show will take place on the 1 & 2 August at the Harrogate Convention Centre.

Director Wendy Adams says: “We are delighted to confirm that Harrogate Fashion Week will be going ahead this August after such a disappointing 2020 and we are looking to ensure the event celebrates the endurance of the fashion industry.”

After an unprecedented year, HFW 2021 will allow indies and brands to re-unite in Harrogate, and will be a testament to the resolve of boutique owners, suppliers, and fashion businesses throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Director Sarah Moody commented: “It’s expected to be a busy selling season and many brands have already reserved their stands in the excitement of getting back to face-to-face selling. We have had many new contemporary collections along with more special occasion, promwear and shoe brand enquiries than ever before, so definitely see a growth in these areas.”

The August show will see returning brands including womenswear labels Marble, Pomodoro, John Charles, Lily & Me, Foil, Focus, Lizabella, Gabriela Sanchez.  In addition, footwear brands already confirmed include Legero, Caprice, and Lotus.
