The fashion industry made a welcome return to the beautiful spa town of Harrogate for a two day event that ran from 29th and 30th July 2018. Running early in the buying season, the show gave buyers the chance to get ahead of their competition and our extensive list of exhibitors generated plenty of new leads and formed new contracts.
Exhibitors who showed their latest offerings at the Harrogate Convention Centre were delighted by the shows return and they were positive about their time in Harrogate.
James Lakeland. “Harrogate is going to become a firm favourite with buyers and the footfall is going to grow massively. James Lakeland will be here in January, Harrogate is the one stop shop for all independent buyers in the country”
Pomodoro. “Harrogate Fashion Week was fashion and fun all under one roof. We opened new accounts and we were really busy on Sunday.”
Carol C. “Lots of new northern accounts were opened with us. We were so busy on Sunday, we started writing at 9.30am and didn’t lift our heads for lunch till 4pm!”
Alice Collins. “The show was in a lovely location, it gave us the chance to meet customers we didn’t expect to and we saw accounts we hadn’t seen for a while which gave us the chance to reignite orders as well as gaining good new accounts.”
Brodie Cashmere. “We saw all the customers we had invited to the show and we had plenty of orders placed. The show itself was great, the layout and lighting worked so well, everyone’s products looked their best.”
Organised by exhibition experts Wendy Adams and Stephen Dixon and former Moda Womenswear Event Director Sarah Moody, we will be returning with our winter show dates, 27th to 28th January 2019 and hope to build on the success of the first Fashion Week to take place in Harrogate for over 17 years.
Harrogate Fashion Week will bring together independent brands and independent retailers across a two-day exhibition in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate.
