York Fashion Week is all about collaboration and celebration. In fact, our entire origin came from beautiful synergy from businesses across York, and we’re always looking for new ways to break barriers, excite the audience and celebrate the city.

We’ve highlighted some ideas below on how you can get involved, but if you have other ideas, please do get in touch.

Host an Event

As a local business, designer, venue, or creative, we’d love to support you in putting on your own event for York Fashion Week. You could host a fashion show to launch your new line, open your studio to the public, or even host a talk by an influential fashionista. Whatever the idea, we’d love to hear it.

Simply fill in the Event Submission form, and a member of the team will review your idea and be back in touch.

Once your event has been approved, we can promote your event under the umbrella of York Fashion Week.


Blog Contributions

Are you an aspiring fashion writer, or just a keen blogger in the City who has something to say? We’d love to hear from you to discuss some writing opportunities both here and over at Fashion City York.

To be put forward, simply email with some examples of your work or a link to your online blog, with a short letter advising on why you’d like to get involved.


York Fashion Week has been created to support businesses and creatives alike. It’s very important that although our platforms remain on-brand and impactful, they must be accessible. It’s because of this that we have some fantastic advertising options available for you, with some options being completely free.

Email to request an advertising pack. Deadline for advert bookings in the 2019 brochure is 23rd November.

Aspiring Model

We’re always looking for models to take part in York Fashion Week. If you’re a professional model who would like to be involved, or an aspiring model that would like to see if modelling is for you, then please do get in touch. We’re looking for models of all body shapes, colours, backgrounds, ethnicities and abilities.

 Email us on with the following:

  • A selection of your images or a link to an online portfolio
  • A breakdown of your measurements and height
  • Information on any past modelling experience
  • Are you available for runway modelling, live modelling (in a window for example) or photographic modelling?
  • If you have a set modelling rate, please advise.

We'll be back in 2019, and dates will be released soon. In the meantime, keep connected with all things fashion in York through our sister site, Fashion City York.
