ABOUT YFW

York Fashion Week is the ultimate celebration of fashion in the gorgeous city of York – a week of runways, workshops, installations and more.

We have run events since 2018 but unfortunately, we had to postpone both our 2020 and 2021 events due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Now in 2022, we are ready to make our return with a new lease of life with our first event taking place 29th April 2022 - 3rd May 2022.

Our ethos remains the same. Inclusivity is a key and we want our events to be welcoming and accessible for all - whether you are wanting to take part in YFW, or simply visit one of our events.

We exist to offer an exciting stage for our city's creative and industry talent to showcase their work, provide a platform for young designers and bring exciting designers, brands and artists into our city too.

We can't wait to welcome you to our YFW22 in April.
