Opening its doors this Sunday, summer 2022’s edition of Harrogate Fashion Week is its largest offering to date. The upcoming show will be spread over three halls on one level of the purpose-built Convention Centre, which is situated in the centre of the spa town with easy access from anywhere in the country.
Harrogate Fashion Week continues to grow season after season, offering the latest womenswear clothing and accessory brands all under one roof. The show is within walking distance of a choice of hotels, bars and restaurants – making it a great place to do business and network after hours too.
This weekend’s event follows a successful AW22 edition in February, which saw a 25 per cent increase in buyers compared to its August 2021 show. Buyers travelled from around the country for the two-day exhibition, with 120 brands showcasing new collections across two fully booked halls.
Brands only showing at Harrogate Fashion Week this season include Troy London, Foil, Orientique, Tirelli, Frank Lyman, Bianca, Faber, Taifun and 5 Hearts by Eugen Klein. A plethora of new brands have also signed up to the show including Luella, Olivia Darcy, Rosa Clara, Fuego, Olivier Philips, Sani Blue, Saint James and Brodie Cashmere. They will sit alongside regular exhibitors Marble, Rino and Pelle, Pomodoro, Ella Boo, Capri, John Charles and Tilley and Grace.
Harrogate Fashion Week’s footwear offer is also growing each season as more fashion indies add shoes and trainers to their product mix. Buyers can expect to see a diverse offer this season from brands including Menbur, XTI, Carmela Caprice, Lotus and Bugatti. Meanwhile, there will be an impressive selection of accessories such as jewellery by Envy and Zsiska, scarves by Diana Wilson Arcana and bags by Aspire Eco and Kris Ana. Last but not least, the show will also present a range of millinery brands including Snoxells, Niche Collection, Failsworth, Victoria Ann Millinery and JBees (full list at harrogatefashionweek.com).
Attendees are invited to a drinks party in the Fashion Café at the close of the show on Sunday 31 July to celebrate with exhibitors, colleagues and friends.
