The sixth edition of Harrogate Fashion Week will take place on 6 – 7 February 2022 at the Harrogate Convention Centre, the show’s organisers have confirmed.
The AW22 event follows a successful edition in August, which saw a 40 per cent uplift in buyers compared to its last physcial show in January 2021. Buyers travelled from as far afield as Bournemouth and Dublin to attend, with 100 brands showcasing their collections across womenswear, footwear, occasionwear and accessories.
Around 70 per cent of brands rebooked for the February edition at the August show, with confirmed labels so far including Ella Boo, Foil, Marble, Pomodoro, John Charles, Veromia, Rupert & Buckley, Lily & Me, Ashwood Leathers and Failsworth Hats.
Director Sarah Moody comments: “After a very successful show in August, we are excited to grow the show with more brands for 2022. An early date in February has been well received and we will be opening earlier at 9am to help brands fit in more appointments. Harrogate is definitely on the fashion calendar now and for the future”
Since first launching in July 2019, Harrogate Fashion Week has grown in popularity among both buyers and brands. Show visitors are offered free on-site parking as well as special discounted rates for local hotels. The organisers also host a free drinks party on the Sunday evening so buyers can network with other indies and suppliers.
“The Harrogate Convention Centre has proved to be a fantastic location for the event, situated in the centre of the UK and right in the heart of this beautiful spa town,” says director Wendy Adams. “Harrogate has always been a popular host town and ideal for networking after hours with the many bars and restaurants.”
Harrogate Fashion Week will return for its sixth edition on 6-7 February and in the summer on 31 July and 1 August.
