Harrogate Fashion Week announces “the show will go on” in August
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement detailing the UK’s roadmap out of lockdown, the organisers of Harrogate Fashion Week (HFW) have announced that the show will take place on 1-2 August 2021 at the Harrogate Convention Centre.
All COVID-19 restrictions are scheduled to be lifted from 21 June, 2021, meaning major events will be able to take place once again following over a year of cancelled shows.
HFW Director Wendy Adams, said: “We are delighted to confirm that Harrogate Fashion Week will be going ahead this August after such a disappointing 2020, and we are looking to ensure the event celebrates the endurance of the fashion industry.”
After an unprecedented year, HFW 2021 will allow independents and brands to re-unite in the popular event town of Harrogate, and “will be a testament to the resolve of boutique owners, suppliers, and fashion businesses throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”
HFW Director Sarah Moody, added: “It’s expected to be a busy selling season and many brands have already reserved their stands in the excitement of getting back to face-to-face selling. We have had many new contemporary collections along with more special occasion, promwear and shoe brand enquiries than ever before, so we definitely see a growth in these areas.”
The August show will see returning brands including womenswear labels Marble, Pomodoro, John Charles, Lily & Me, Foil, Focus, Lizabella, Gabriela Sanchez. In addition, footwear brands already confirmed include Legero, Caprice and Lotus.
