The Harrogate Convention Centre was transformed into a veritable assortment of taste and style, and all buyers at the event enjoyed Harrogate’s famed hospitality.

Harrogate Fashion Week welcomed buyers from all over the UK as far reaching as Bournemouth to Aberdeen and Dublin to place orders for womenswear, footwear, occasion wear and accessories.  The fifth addition of Harrogate Fashion Week was the largest yet with visitor footfall increasing by 40%. The show had a great atmosphere with orders being placed right up until the show closed on the second day.

 

Exhibitor Gerard from I.nco “Harrogate fashion week for us has been a joy to be back, seeing all the customers. It is well attended, so for us as exhibitors, we are busy. Harrogate itself is a great destination, it is a comfortable and enjoyable place to work and great for networking after the show. The attendance has been fantastic and great to see the retailers face to face. We have all had the last 18 months of difficulty – closures and COVID, so this has been very positive”

 

Amanda Knight fashion agent commented that “Harrogate has been fantastic – we are very impressed. The whole set up! Everybody is super friendly, set up was a dream, with porters available to help and free tea and coffee! Loved every minute- had a great show! It has worked fantastically, and we are really pleased to be here. It has been fabulous here at Harrogate to see all the lovely buyers all from further afield.

 

“Free on-site parking was great after a long journey and our hotel was within walking distance and good rates were available. It was lovely to attend the drinks party on Sunday night and network with suppliers that I have been dealing with for over thirty years” HFW Attendee

Harrogate Fashion Week will return on the 6-7th February 2022. Judging by the 2021 event, it cannot be missed.
