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.
