The fashion industry is making a welcome return to the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, with the launch of ‘Harrogate Fashion Week’ a new trade show, with the aim of bringing together independent brands and independent retailers for a two-day exhibition. Organised by well known Event Organiser Wendy Adams and her team, the show will run from Sunday 29th to Monday 30th July 2018, and marks the first fashion trade show in over 15 years at Harrogate.

Harrogate has a long history with the fashion industry having hosted buying events at the Convention Centre for over 25 years until a move to Birmingham in 2001 – with many agents and brands still involved in the industry having happy memories of successful times at Harrogate, Wendy and her team felt that Harrogate was the obvious choice to launch their event.

Wendy herself has a long relationship with Harrogate – having been involved in the original fashion and bridal trade events in Harrogate, she has in addition run The Harrogate Bridal Show, the largest bridal trade show in Europe, for over 32 years, and more recently has built up The Flooring Show at the Harrogate Convention Centre to be the UK’s National Trade event.

“With difficult times on the high street it’s making exhibiting less profitable for brands and agents, we want to launch a new type of event where our main consideration is to keep the stand prices low without compromising on the buyers experience. The stand packages are competitively priced from just £900 to make sure Harrogate Fashion Week works for all our exhibitors.” says Wendy.

Choosing to hold Harrogate Fashion Week at the Harrogate Convention Centre was an easy decision. Wendy comments ‘The Convention Centre provides an extensive exhibition space in the centre of the spa town with plenty of room for the show to grow as it puts its stamp, once again, on the fashion trade industry. With so much to offer, it’s the best placed exhibition venue for mixing business with pleasure, right in the heart of the town, with a vibrant mix of restaurants and bars for after hours networking, creating a high energy and vibrant atmosphere for visitors to enjoy for the duration of the exhibition.’

Details of how to exhibit and attend have already been released with an overwhelming response and the website will be live in the next few days. For information on how to book your space, please email Wendy on wendy@harrogatefashionweek.com or call on 01423 623701.
