What is York Fashion Week?


York Fashion Week is a real celebration of fashion, creativity, and style that takes place in the stunning city of York.

Local venues are taken over and open their doors to the fashion-loving public. You’re invited to browse the calendar before booking tickets for various runway shows, fashion lecturers, style workshops and more.

We’re not here to tell you what to wear. We’re here to inspire you creatively, show you what’s happening in the world of fashion, and create a platform for designers at all levels in their careers.

This diverse event launched in 2018 and has already showcased numerous talented designers from across the UK, an array of independent businesses and a huge number of high street brands. And in 2019, we proudly became a friend of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Leeds.
