Pants, Gill Harvey Collection, Ella Boo and Lizabella at the show.

British womenswear brand Pomodoro will also be among this season’s exhibitors. Director Noreen Puri comments: “Harrogate holds such happy memories for us and has played  a significant part in the success of our business.  We are looking forward to meeting both existing and new clients –  Harrogate offers a great opportunity  to mix business and pleasure.”

Meanwhile, well-established UK label Emreco will also  be present this season. “Harrogate Fashion Week is a  good opportunity for Emreco to better our relationships and sales with our Northern and Scottish independent stores and boutiques,” says MD Richard Reinhold. 

The event is taking place early in the buying season and will be one of the first UK trade shows to present the latest launches. On the show’s opening day visitors will be able to attend the official Harrogate Fashion Week after-show party and toast the new season in style.
