Harrogate Fashion Week gears up for third event

Harrogate Fashion Week is gearing up for its third outing this 28-29 July, where it will once again offer a curated showing of quality brands in a beautiful spa town setting.

“We have many returning exhibitors confirmed for July including  John Charles, Pomodoro, Sahara, Orientique, Helen Moore,  Lily and Me, Goose Island,  Ella Boo,” says show director Sarah Moody. “We will also have some exciting new brands including  Captain Corsaire, Mistral and Lotus Shoes.  One of the more notable developments is that we are getting much interest from footwear brands who are looking to target the independent boutique market.”

The exhibition has also announced a new collaboration with MICE, a hotel bookings agency that has negotiated special rates with many of Harrogate’s hotels. Director Wendy Adams says: “We want to make the buyers’ experience in Harrogate as pleasant and cost-effective as possible, and a large part of that is making sure that they’re getting good value for money with their hotel accommodation. Harrogate is such a wonderful part of the world, and we’ve found that a number of buyers are staying on for an extra day so they have the time to pop out to Betty’s or Gino D’Acampo’s for lunch, then come back into the exhibition for the afternoon, or perhaps spend a day in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, which are on Harrogate’s doorstep”.
