Being the only womenswear trade show to be held during the summer months it is expected to be attended by many of the independent boutiques and stores ready to refresh their offering. Buyers feel safe visiting Harrogate rather than the larger venues in London or Birmingham and feel the show has a great atmosphere and easy to navigate.
The beautiful spa town of Harrogate is easy to travel to by rail or car, check out the website for more details – www.harrogatefashionweek.com. Special rates have been negotiated for Exhibitors and Buyers at The Hotel St George and the Crown Plaza both within walking distance of the venue, so why not treat yourself and turn it into your summer staycation.
