Harrogate BID is pleased to announce the return of the Celebration of Fashion for 2024 – highlighting the town’s fashion and retail offer.

Following the success of the inaugural event in 2023, the fashion celebration will return to the Piazza outside the Victoria Shopping Centre on Saturday, May 18th from 10am.

From prom dresses to race day outfits, the 2024 catwalk will feature new categories alongside favourites from last year including wedding attire, activewear, the summer season and clothing highlighting Harrogate’s high street fashion.

But, as well as the catwalk, stage and big screen at the centre of the show, shops in the town will offer pop-up unique experiences to attract the fashion conscious.

Harrogate BID Manager, Matthew Chapman, said: “During the 2023 Harrogate Celebration of Fashion, 19,000 people walked through the Piazza area – which saw many retailers showcasing garments on stage actually sell out of what was on display.

“This event not only provides a fantastic day out for all the family, but delivers a clear return on investment to our members.”

The BID team is working with a range of retailers in the town centre, both independent and national, to encourage shoppers into stores and invigorate the high street for another year.

Businesses already committed to be involved in this year’s fashion event include Morgan Clare, Sophie Likes, Elite Bridal, Molton Brown, Primark and LK Bennett.

Any businesses or influencers looking to get involved with the Harrogate Celebration of Fashion should email the Harrogate BID team on info@harrogatebid.co.uk

Harrogate BID is also opening category sponsorship opportunities for this year’s Celebration of Fashion event. Included in the set price will be presenter mentions on the day, logo and branding printing in an event booklet, dedicated social media posts and adverts on the big screen.
