Last weekend, Harrogate Fashion Week returned with its fifth event, which it says caught the most attention yet.

Now with more than 100 brands exhibiting, a dedicated team behind the show ensured the weekend went off without a hitch at The Harrogate Convention Centre.

Harrogate Fashion Week welcomed buyers from all over the UK as far reaching as Bournemouth to Aberdeen and Dublin to place orders for womenswear, footwear, occasion wear and accessories.  The fifth addition of Harrogate Fashion Week was the largest yet with visitor footfall increasing by 40%. The show had a great atmosphere with orders being placed right up until the show closed on the second day.

Exhibitor Gerard from I.nco said: “Harrogate fashion week for us has been a joy to be back, seeing all the customers. It is well attended, so for us as exhibitors, we are busy. Harrogate itself is a great destination, it is a comfortable and enjoyable place to work and great for networking after the show. The attendance has been fantastic and great to see the retailers face to face. We have all had the last 18 months of difficulty – closures and COVID, so this has been very positive”

Amanda Knight, fashion agent, commented: “Harrogate has been fantastic – we are very impressed. The whole set up! Everybody is super friendly, set up was a dream, with porters available to help and free tea and coffee! Loved every minute – had a great show! It has worked fantastically, and we are really pleased to be here. It has been fabulous here at Harrogate to see all the lovely buyers all from further afield.”

Harrogate Fashion Week will return on the 6-7 February 2022.
