We’re in venues like Mansion House, York Art Gallery, Clarendon Gallery, The Impossible and more. And the designers have really brought their A game, with what they’re showing this season. I’m incredibly proud that YFW can once again be a platform for so many innovative minds.”

York Fashion Week launched in 2018, and even with a two-year break due to Covid, the event has grown year on year. It has been the first to host runway shows in iconic venues such as York Art Gallery and The Guildhall.

Since its growth, the event is proudly sponsored by NIMA, York Bid and MARK. With Associate Sponsors including Rae & Rae Opticians, Cresci Pizzeria, House of Dandelions and Party Octopus.
