The organisers of Harrogate Fashion Week (HFW) have announced that they have just signed for a fourth hall at the Harrogate Convention Centre – which gives an extra 1,600sqm of growth for the show.
Wendy Adams commented: “It was a big decision, but with some fabulous new brands joining and a waiting list of brands, we are still in consultation with the extra space was needed.”
Last month, organisers also announced that due to exhibitor and buyer demand, along with the continued growth of the show itself, this next Summer edition will now be open for three days – from Sunday 30 July to Tuesday 1 August 2023.
Carol Capener, owner of Carol C Collections, was asked why they have been a long-time supporter of HFW. She said: “HFW is a great show for us… we have been there since the launch five years ago and the show has proved to be so successful that we have exhibited every season ever since, watching the show go from strength to strength.
“The agency has also grown with the show, so much so that we now require more space for SS24 and as a result, we are looking forward to moving to our new home in Hall A from the next show. We are introducing new brands into our portfolio for SS24, and HFW is the perfect place to launch them.
“Our buyers are from all over the UK and love coming to HFW to write their orders in the relaxed environment. It is no longer a Northern show as we see customers from far and wide. Who wouldn’t love coming to visit the beautiful spa town of Harrogate for the weekend! We can’t wait for the next show, and the first three-day show at that!”
New brands to see at this season’s show include Yest, Golle Haug, Junge, Maria Bellentani, Zoe, Victoria Charles Headpieces, Eliza Gracious, Walk in Pitas, Suzie Blue, Dibia, Meri Esca, PINNS, Rainbow Club, Le Comte, Zhrill, Berek, Haven, eb&ive, EsQuala, Dream Handprint Apparel, Fuego, Mansted, Thanny, Callaghan, Traffic People, Thro’backs by Nique, Ubu and the Godske Group.
Registration is now open for visitors and a full brand list will be going live soon.
