With Harrogate Fashion Week gearing up for its next outing on January 26th and 27th, the event is gathering momentum, with new exhibitors aplenty, although still with an eye on ensuring that the accent is on quality, and ranges which the independent boutique owner will find attractive.

Veromia will be bringing four of their brands; Veromia Occasions – a well-priced dress range; Dress Code -Plus sizes from size 16 to 28; Dressed Up- a Mother of the Bride collection; and Irresistible – a top-end range of stunning and elegant Occasionwear dresses. Sales Manager Avril Forbes said; “There’s lots of positive talk about Harrogate Fashion Week, so we thought we’d give it a whirl! And anyway, we all love Harrogate!”

Alice Collins Director Louise Collins said “We’re delighted to be back in Harrogate, and we’re already telling our customers we’ll be there. The timing is right, and our buyers love coming to Harrogate. We’re also pleased to note that some excellent brands have joined, and we’re looking forward to a really successful show”

Nigel Hughes is bringing Picadilly to the show. “We will be pleased to be showing Picadilly A/W20 for the first time at Harrogate Fashion Week in January. Picadilly is a family business and a leading Canadian brand. The collection is a broad and versatile event dressing collection for all social occasions. Lots of comfortable smart holiday looks and plenty of nice unstructured soft weekend wear.  In addition, there are lots of pretty single pieces for that impulse buy to mix and match -Something for everyone”.

Surely one of the best-known accessories brands is Dents, a company which can trace its history back to 1777. CEO Deborah Moore said “It’s great to be in at the start of what we believe is going to be a very successful event. We’ve known the Harrogate team for many years, and have every confidence that the show will be a great success. And we love coming to Harrogate!”

Event Director Sarah Moody said, “We’ve had a much-increased amount of interest in the show for January, and we’re confident that this is what our sector of the fashion industry wants. Exhibitors need to know that as organisers we are aware that trading conditions aren’t brilliant at the moment, and our service and prices reflect that. And whilst we have hitherto pitched the show primarily at Northern and Scottish buyers, we’re also getting more and more interest from buyers from further afield, including Ireland.”
