York Fashion Week to return for second event
York Fashion Week is back. Following the consumer-facing event's successful debut for Spring/Summer 2022, which saw over 25 sell-out shows take place across the city and attracted more than a thousand visitors to York, organisers have secured new sponsors and announced dates for the next event.
York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2022 will run across 6-10 October with The Guildhall again playing main host to a second show “featuring an impressive line up of indie brands from across Yorkshire and further afield who are creating unique and innovative fashion”.
Its organisers said they are in the process of recruiting designers, models, stylists and photographers to sign up and take part.
The Guildhall will host the Student and Graduate Runway Show – which returns after its debut earlier this year “and will shine a light on burgeoning talent from across the region”.
The week will also include a VIP Q&A at Yorkshire Museum, and a full day of workshops, lecturers and exhibits.
Nicky Hayer, Founder and Creative Director of York Fashion Week, said: “We’re immensely proud of what YFW has already achieved, and when we speak to the creatives and see the difference that YFW has already made to them, there’s no better feeling. We want nothing more than to empower creatives to try new things, push boundaries and really fight for the career of their dreams. We’ve got some big plans for Autumn/Winter and even bigger plans for 2023!”
Mark Bewick, Managing Director of York Fashion Week, added:: “We have been overwhelmed by the interest in the YFW Autumn/Winter event and are delighted to have signed up a series of high profile sponsors. It truly is a collaboration with local hotels and venues, businesses and restaurants all working together for the good of the city. Our goal is to fill the city with fashion, colour and excitement and with everyone working together, we know this is achievable.”
Headline sponsors include York BID, The Guildhall, NIMA, The Vices York and Blossom Cosmetics. Meanwhile, Lucia York, Eboracum Candles, Doubletree by Hilton York, Jorvik Radio and Cooper King Distillery have also signed up as associate sponsors.
