Harrogate Fashion Week (HFW) organisers have confirmed the show’s summer edition will increase in duration to three days in response to exhibitor and buyer demand. The next event will take place from Sunday 30 July to Tuesday 1 August at the Harrogate Convention Centre.
Since its first show in July 2018, HFW has become a major event on the fashion trade show calendar, offering one of the latest ranges of womenswear and occasionwear brands under one roof alongside footwear and accessories.
Co-founders Wendy Adams and Sarah Moody say its last event in February attracted over 35 per cent more visitors than the year before – and they are expecting even bigger numbers for SS24: “We are already receiving enquiries from boutique owners all over the UK who want information on the show,” they say. “Many will be visiting us for the first time this season.”
Over 90 per cent of exhibitors rebooked space following its most recent edition, with brands such as Foil, Pomodoro, Lizabella, Marble, Sahara, Bariloche, Dolcezza and Rino & Pelle all preparing to present their SS24 collections.
Summer’s HFW will also showcase a strong occasionwear offer with key labels including John Charles, Gabriela Sanchez, Fely Campo, Veromia and Irresistible confirmed as exhibitors. There will also be an expanded range of accessories brands on offer from the likes of Suzie Blue, Eliza Gracious and Envy jewellery. They will be joined by an ever-increasing selection of footwear brands such as Lotus, Loretta Vitale, Bagatt and Emis, Lunar, Caprice, Legero and Dibia.
